From 1551 to 1559 the printer Tobias ben Eliezer Foa produced several Hebrew works beginning with Joseph Shaliṭ 's "Merkabat ha-Mishnah." (1551) and finishing with an edition of the Ḥ oshen Mishpaṭ of the ṭ ur (1559). He began also a maḥ zor there in 1556 and finished it in Cremona, whither he moved in 1560 part of his Mishnah, begun in Sabbionetta in 1559, was finished in Mantua in 1563. His career as printer was forcibly ended at Sabbionetta because he had published certain anti-Christian books. His work and possibly his type were taken up by a Christian printer, Vicenzo Conte, who moved from Cremona to Sabbionetta in 1567, and who there produced an edition of the Pirḳ e R. Eliezer.
