When the British Museum purchased the manuscript, they pasted the bookseller’s catalogue entry into the manuscript and it has been reproduced in the facsimile exactly as it appears in the original: as a pasted-in catalogue extract. The description of the manuscript is particularly interesting: “Agada, that is The Prayers used by the Jews at their Meals during Easter.” The Museum paid fifty guineas for the manuscript, equivalent to £52 10 shillings. In the 1930s, the exchange rate was about US $5 to £1 sterling so the purchase price would have been about US $263.
