18th c record from Glogow/Glogau #poland #germany #records

While searching in the Polish archives for 18th c  information from Glogow/Glogau (JRI-Poland does not list any), I found a notebook entitled "Repertorium der Grund-Acten von der vormaligen Glogauer Juden-Stadt".  The date is given as 1821-1858, but it is clearly older than that. I can't figure out what this notebook is, but it includes lots of names.  It also has maps of the Jewish quarter and who lived where, but I'm not sure when. There is writing in several hands from different time periods.
 
 I'm hoping someone with expertise in this area might be able to figure out what this notebook is.  Its physical location is the Archiwum Państwowe w Zielonej Górze, and the URL is https://www.szukajwarchiwach.gov.pl/en/jednostka/-/jednostka/6642846

I could read enough to tell that it does not include the name I was looking for, but it could be very useful for others.

Hello Frank,

a "Repertorium" is a sort of table of contents/directory for archived files, another German word is "Findbuch". This book gives you a hint on the files that once existed in the city of Glogau on the Jewish part of the city. The documents themselves may not have survived.

The handwriting seems to be from the time indicated, not earlier, yet the first few pages have a special "twist"in the handwriting, maybe the the clerk was brought up/used to writing Polish?
