   R. Solomon b. Joseph Hazzan (d. 1857) was born in Algeria at the end of the eighteenth century; died on board a vessel bound for Malta. As a boy he accompanied his father to Damascus, and subsequently settled in Cairo, where he conducted a Talmudic school. In 1832 he was elected chief rabbi of Alexandria. Three of his works, edited by Faraj Hayyim Mizrahi, were printed after his death by his son David; namely, "Ha-Ma'alot li-Shelomoh," "Baruk Mimeshah," and "Ben Shelomoh," Alexandria, 1889-90. The most important of these, "Ha-Ma'alot li-Shelomoh," is a bibliographical work divided into two parts, the first containing a title bibliography, the second a list of authors. It is a continuation of R. Azulai's "Shem ha-Gedolim," and includes the Sephardic writers who were contemporary with R. Azulai (omitted by the latter), as well as those living half a century after him. A biographical appendix to the work deals with the chief rabbis of Alexandria.
