|JapSin I, 224|
Inscriptiones judaicae urbis k’ai fong fou.
Manuscript in Latin and French, twenty-six folios, bound in European style.
On the recto of the first folio is written: “Responsum ad R. P. Metator de codice Pis | Bouvet quo probare intendit doctrinam sinicam | et doctrinam Iudaeorum ab eodem fonti profluxisse.”The handwriting of the present manuscript is the same as that of Jap-Sin I, 195, which we have identified as that of Foucquet (see above). The handwriting of this manuscript is so small that it is almost illegible. It quotes copiously from the Chinese Classics.
For the interest of Foucquet in gathering data about the Jews at Kaifeng, see Witek 1982, pp. 219–220.
