Judeo-Arabic printed work: Shir Hashirim and Translation. Contains the full text of the Shir Hashirim with Judeo-Arabic translation and commentary. This is one of the earliest books printed in Judeo-Arabic – the first known is a pamphlet containing Aseret Hadibrot in 1737 and almost no other until the 19th century.
