The Paris MS. 842 was copied for a Moses "lpE>? J3X, probably Ibn 
Al-Ashkar, and finished the 13th of Elul, 5224=1464, at Oran ; but 
this name cannot represent the Moses mentioned above.

The MSS. of the late Mose Lattes. 

Pkofessoks Lattes, brothers of the deceased, have presented his 
fifty-two Hebrew MSS. to the Ambrosian Library at Milan. Amongst 
them is the MS. of Elijah del Medigo's dissertations on the intellect, 
made at the request of Pic dela Mirandola, formerly in the possession 
of the Treves family at Venice (see Dr. Steinschneider's Catalogue 
of the Schonblum's MSS., 1872, No. 24, H., and Monatsschrif t fur 
G-eschichte und "Wissenschaf t des Judenthum«, xxxvii., p. 187). The 
treatise begins as follows : —

A third MS. contains a fragment of a Mahazor for ni and an - '- 
square characters, in fol. At the beginning a biographical note 
(Italian cursive character) of the family of Cremona and the name 
of Abraham, son of Israel Saul Raphael 'Dip, for whom the Mahazor
