Chapter Summary

This illustration section of this book titled Linguistic Variety of Judaeo-Arabic in Letters from the Cairo Genizah contains photographs of a very typical Egyptian 11th-century letter, in the common cursive hand used for epistolary Judaeo-Arabic and an Egyptian letter from around the year 1065 CE. It also includes a Maghrebian letter written on parchment, a letter from the early 13th century, with the typical formula indicating the sender in the left hand top corner, and a letter from the early 13th century, commencing with a Biblical quotation, followed by the sender introduced by both Hebrew and Judaeo-Arabic formulae, without marginal writing.
