Sassoon 1053 is an important Tiberian masoretic manuscript containing the entire Hebrew Bible (Torah, Nevi'im and Ketuvim). The manuscript is often referred to as "S1" or "ש1" or "שׂ" in scholarly works. It serves as an important resource for the reconstruction of vowels, accents and letters in missing parts of the Aleppo Codex. It's masoretic apparatus is also of importance, not only for confirming the spelling of numerous words, but also because its notes in some places are described as having been copied from the Aleppo Codex.

The 24 PDF files in this category are meant to make the available images of this manuscript more convenient for actual use than are the hundreds of individual JPGs available from the National Library of Israel.[1] The images themselves were scanned from a microfilm of the manuscript, and their quality is mediocre but usable. These images are consulted and referred to within the documentation for an experimental edition of the masoretic Bible at Hebrew Wikisource.
