The manuscript of the Guide to the Perplexed (Moreh Nevuchim) is present in its original form in Arabic transliterated into Hebrew. This well-organized manuscript includes all three parts of the original Guide to the Perplexed.

Handwritten Yemenite manuscripts of the Rambam's writings are deeply treasured for their great accuracy.

The title page text reads: "This work, Guide to the Perplexed by our Rabbi, the great Moshe bar Maimon, zecher tzaddik v'kadosh l’chayei olam haba.”

 The manuscript contains a disclaimer by the scribe: "The young servant who collects the dust of scribes beseeches all who read this work, that in the event that he shall find any mistake, may he judge me meritoriously and from Heaven they will judge him meritoriously, amein ken yehi ratzon. The youth Salem ben Yichyeh Radi.”

Yemen, 1933. 299 leaves, 598 sides. Page size: 24x18cm. Paragraph headers in large purple letters. Decorative title page in black and purple. Protected in ornate case. Good condition.
