Alleged Provenance
“... [William] Noah acquired two fragments in Ferrini's possession that belonged to the Kandos: a tiny portion of the Book of Jeremiah, and a small fragment of rabbinic commentary about the Book of Genesis. “'Dead Sea cornflakes' we used to call them, they were so small,” Noah says.
Noah attempted to return the fragments to the Kando family, but the Kandos instead agreed to sell the fragments at a discount to Noah and Sharpe” [Greshko 2020, revised version of article].
