In all the world, only six manuscript exemplars and an old print of this work (1743) still exist. Its author is the famous Bohemian rabbi, astronomer and mathematician R. David ben Salomon Gans (1541-1613), student of Maharal of Prague, R. Judah Loew (1525-1609) and of Rema, R. Moses Isserles (1520-1572). In his 1974 monograph about David Gans, André Neher referred to this copy as the Manuscrit de Genève. A colophon in the manuscript gives the date as 1613, but a current study about the history of the transmission of this work suggests that it is an 18th century copy.
