Solomon Bekhor Ḥutzin (Hutz, 1843–1892) was a scholar, poet, author, journalist, bookseller, and communal worker. He founded a new press in Baghdad in 1888. He brought his printing letters from Leghorn, Italy. Besides prayer books, Hutzin also printed many books which he considered useful to the members of his community. These included tales and works by Baghdad scholars which had been in manuscript until then. After his death, the printing press was taken over by his son, Joshua Ḥutinz, and operated until 1913. Seventy-five books were printed on it.
