Summary

The Book of Esther written on 3 gatherings removed from a miscellany. The first leaf of the first gathering begins with the last 7 verses of the Book of Lamentations, the work that preceded the Book of Esther in the miscellany. The last leaf of the last gathering has been replaced by an added leaf on which are written 2 liturgical poems (Asher Heini, whose beginning is not on the leaf, and Shoshanat Yaʻaḳov) used at Purim along with the Book of Esther.
