Writ of approval for the appointment of Rabbi Chaim

Lot 0325 Details

Description
"Ktav Haskamah" - writ of approval of the Vercelli, Italy, community accepting Rabbi Chaim Sagri as their rabbi. Not dated. 17th century.
[1] folded leaf. 18x27 cm. Italian text on two pages.
The lack of a date seems to indicate that this is a draft of the ktav haskamah. The names of the congregants and their seats is written in the margins, in a different hand. The back has bylaws regarding designating seats in the synagogue, along with: "מכבתי ×¢"ד ×ž×§×•× ×‘"×”, תמ"ב..."
This Rabbi Chaim Sagri is apparently the same Rabbi Chaim Sagri who was sent in 1666 to study Shabtai Zvi. His son, Rabbi Elisha Sagri, was the rabbi of Vercelli.
Refer to Toldot Gedolei Yisrael V'Geoni Italia, p. 107, letter 6.
Aging stains. Fine-very fine condition.
