The Karaite manuscripts of Levinus Warner in this collection have introduced Karaite texts to European scholarship and includes important Byzantine manuscripts containing works by Byzantine Karaites and also Karaite Hebrew translations of eleventh-century authors who wrote in Arabic such as Yūsuf al-Basīr and Yeshuʾah ben Yehudah.

Of all Karaite manuscripts in Warner's collection, this volume is the most important (Steinschneider, p. 165). See also Levinus Warner and his Legacy (Leiden 1970), p. 52, with illustration of a folio.
Considering the fact that texts by Ibn Ezra and Maimonides are included in this codex, the collection reflects the general Karaite interest in Medieval rationalism.
Several purchase notes, the youngest one by Moses Jerushalmi, who bought the MS in 1660.
