JOSEPH (B. JACOB) OF MANDEVILLE (MORELL):

French exegete; pupil of Abraham ibn Ezra. He wrote a supercommentary on that scholar's commentary on Exodus (Neubauer, "Cat. Bodl. Hebr. MSS." No. 1234, 9). It is probable that he is identical with the Joseph b. Jacob to whom Abraham ibn Ezra dedicated his "Yesod Mora."
