The John Rylands Genizah Collections share one particular feature with other Genizah collections, such as the Alliance Israélite Universelle Collections (AIU) and the Mosseri Collection currently housed in Cambridge, that sets them apart from the Taylor-Schechter Genizah Collections in Cambridge: there is a wealth of material from the eighteenth and nineteenth century. Letters written in a mercantile context seem especially to be in overabundance: a quick survey of the materials on the Manchester websites reveals the bounty of Late Judaeo-Arabic (i.e., from the seventeenth to nineteenth century) epistolary material that is available.
