Written for Daniel ben Samuel ha-Rofe, ; his arms (fol. ); three other manuscripts are linked to Daniel ben Samuel ha-Rofe: British Library, Or. 2736 and Add. 26968; Venice, Jewish Museum, MS 85.

Matteo Luigi Canonici's (1727-1805) collections passed to his brother Giuseppe, and on his death in 1807 to Giovanni Perissinotti and Girolamo Cardina, who divided them. To the former fell the MSS., then about 3550 in number, and, after many attempts to sell them, the Bodleian became the purchaser of the greater part in 1817, for £5444 5s. 1d., or including incidental expenses about £6030, the largest single purchase ever made by the Library. The formal list of volumes handed over was signed on May 18, 1817, and the books probably arrived later that year.
