Together with a register of the authors and a table of content from B. Friedberg. ” Friedberg (1876-1961) was a “scholar and bibliographer. Friedberg was born in Cracow, and in 1900 moved to Frankfurt, where he worked for the publisher and bookseller Isaac Kauffmann. In 1904 he set up his own firm and by 1906 had published two catalogs; in the same year he and J. Saenger founded the publishing house of Saenger and Friedberg. In 1910 the partnership broke up, and Friedberg entered the diamond trade, moving to Antwerp. When the Nazis occupied Belgium, he lost his valuable library and all his papers. In 1946 he settled in Tel Aviv, continuing to deal in diamonds but with his heart in books and his bibliographical and genealogical research. Beginning in 1896, Friedberg published in Hebrew a number of biographies, e. G, on Joseph Caro, Shabbetai Kohen, and Nathan Spira; family histories, e. G, Schor, Landau, and Horowitz; and a study on the old Jewish cemetery of Cracow, Luhot Zikkaron. Friedberg's first bibliographical effort was a history of Hebrew printing in Cracow, Ha-Defus ha-Ivri be-Cracow, followed by a similar study on Lublin, Le-Toledot ha-Defus ha-Ivri be-Lublin (1901) . In 1932 he began publishing a series of works on the history of Hebrew printing, Toledot ha-Defus ha-Ivri; the series included volumes on Poland; on Italy, Spain, Portugal, Turkey, and the Orient; on Central Europe; and on Western Europe. His greatest achievement was his bibliographical lexicon Beit Eked Sefarim. Though Friedberg's works are not always accurate, they are indispensable bibliographical reference books” (Ben-Menahem in EJ, 2007) . Subjects: Hebrew imprints. Hebrew literature - Bibliography. Yiddish literature - Bibliography. Wear and scuffing to leather edges and spine, light chafing of leather. Backstrip repaired on volume one. Pages lightly yellowed, but very fresh.

Simonsen, with 8 zincograph plates drawn by Dr. J. Euting ... And 18 photogravures. “R. David Jacob Simonsen (1853–1932) was a Danish rabbi, scholar, and bibliophile. Born in Copenhagen, Simonsen was the son of Jacob Simonsen, a banker and leader of the Jewish community. He studied oriental languages at the University of Copenhagen and in 1874 was admitted to the Jewish theological seminary in Breslau where he was ordained as rabbi. He then returned to Copenhagen to assist the aged chief rabbi, Abraham Alexander Wolff. When Wolff died in 1891 R. Simonsen was chosen to succeed him but he resigned his office in 1902. During a vacancy in the Copenhagen rabbinate from 1918 to 1920 he again functioned as rabbi. When the Jews from Eastern Europe reached Denmark about 1904 after the Kishinev pogroms he helped them to integrate in their new home. During World War I, he led activities on behalf of war victims, taking special interest in the Jewish community in Palestine. An enthusiastic bookcollector, R. Simonsen had a library of about 40, 000 volumes covering every field in Judaism, which he presented to the Royal Library of Copenhagen in the last year of his life; it now constitutes the principal part of the Judaica department, called ‘Bibliotheca judaica Simonseniana’ in his honor. R. Simonsen had an extensive Jewish knowledge but his literary output was confined mainly to scholarly articles. In addition, he contributed to the Dansk biografisk leksikon, the Jewish Encyclopaedia, Juedisches Lexikon, the German Encyclopaedia Judaica, and the Danish Tidsskrift for jodisk historie og literatur. Simonsen published a descriptive catalog in Danish and French of sculptures and inscriptions from Palmyra in the Glypothek in Copenhagen (1889), a treatise on the history of Hebrew printing (1901), and a translation into Danish of Jewish tales and legends (1928) . About 100 of his articles are listed in the festschrift dedicated to him on the occasion of his 70th birthday” (Festskrift... David Simonsen, Hebrew title Nir David, 1923) .

Asidim and their doctrines; Ha-Mistorin be-Yisrael, monographs on sources and teachers of mysticism, beginning with Ha-Mistorin ha-Kadum in the Bible, Apocrypha, and the Talmud, up to the early and later kabbalists. Among his other writings are a collection of articles on personalities and values outside the world of mysticism and confronting it: Le-Korot ha-Rabbanut, Yahadut ha-Sekhel ve-Yahadut ha-Regesh, and Kivshono shel Olam; compilations of the writings of kabbalists and Hasidim: Moses Cordovero, Isaac Luria and Hayyim Vital, Nahman of Bratslav, and Dov Baer the Maggid of Mezhirech; the publication of sources: Shivhei ha-Besht, Sippurei R. Na? Man, etc.; Memoirs, his last book, an autobiography and the most literary of his works. Horodezky was one of the last scholars to write in the manner of Wissenschaft der Judenthums before its development into modern Jewish scholarship. Like other contemporaries, he was a product of the intellectual climate of the East European Jewish town and educated himself to become a Hebrew writer. His quiet, informative, non-argumentative manner of speech helped break the boycott of the maskilim against Hasidism. He liked to cite representative sources but wrote little analysis and criticism. Zvi Voyeslavsky defined him well in the ? Abad term “Ha-Hozer”. His library is preserved in Bet Faitlovitch in Tel Aviv.

A soundex index makes it simpler to locate a given surname with its proper Polish spelling. The introductory portion of the book describes the origins and evolution of Polish-Jewish surnames.

XX, 600 pages. 29 cm. First edition. Published by YIVO in conjunction with the Miriam Weiner Routes to Roots Foundation. “With its archival inventories representing 1, 400 shetls and towns, this book effectively puts to rest the once widely-held belief that virtually all documents pertaining to Jews in these countries had been destroyed during the Holocaust. These archives became accessible to the public for genealogy research only after Ukraine and Moldova declared independence in 1991. Here, listed for the first time in English, are precise inventories of the vast Jewish materials in the archives of Ukraine and Moldova, presented with the full cooperation and blessings of Ukrainian and Moldovan archivists. Of extraordinary value for Jewish genealogists, Jewish Roots in Ukraine and Moldova is also a superlative travel guide, with 1, 200 photographs, maps, and document examples, including many rare antique postcards. The chapters on towns and cities highlight 189 places in Ukraine and Moldova. They include such important Jewish centers as Kiev, Lvov, Odessa, and Kishinev; and lesser-known places such as Shepetovka, Sudilkov, Soroki and Priluki. The sections entitled "The People and the Places" and "Town Clips" offer many more photographs of Jewish life, past and present. The Holocaust chapter includes poignant photographs of memorials to the victims of the Nazis in cities, towns and villages all over Ukraine and Moldova, along with detailed maps and accompanying text. Some photographs are pre-World War I, and some were taken just a few months prior to publication. More than 900 of the photographs are in full color, as are all 20 maps. Along with the reproductions of Jewish documents and family records, Jewish Roots in Ukraine and Moldova, like its predecessor volume, Jewish Roots in Poland, is an exceptional resource as well as a poignant memorial album of unsurpassed quality and stunning visual impact. ” (Publishers description) Subjects: Jews - Ukraine - History - Pictorial works.

Samaritan texts, edited and translated, with historical and analytical introductions, textual-critical notes, scholia and supplements by Moritz Heidenheim; born in Worms (Germany) in 1824, the eldest son of the Jewish community's cantor. While attending the official school he was also instructed by the community's rabbi. After completing school he concentrated on Rabbinical studies, worked as a kosher butcher, and times as a preacher and cantor at the local synagoge. He was supposed to become a rabbi - so in 1850/51 he matriculated at Giessen University, aiming at his doctoratein philosophy. During this time he converted to Christianity, and left in 1852 for London where he continued his studies in theology at King's College. In 1859 he was ordained an Anglican priest. Apart from fulfilling his duties in a London parish he studied Hebrew and Samaritan manuscripts in various European libraries. In 1864 he moved to Zurich and took up the post of the Anglican chaplain, which he served with great commitment for 25 years. Heidenheim also lectured at Zurich University on the Hebrew Bible. His topics ranged form Christian theology to Rabbinical literature to several Semitic Languages. Heidenheim tried to convince the Christian theologians of the value of the rabbinic tradition for the Christian exegesis without success - particulary as a converted Jew. Heidenheim failed to ever obtain a full professorship. He edited three periodicals; the first two served the publication of Samaritan texts. ” His extensive library of Hebraic works is now at the Central Library of Zurich. Subjects: Samaritans.

New York City; Library Of The Jewish Theological Seminary, 2004. Softbound. 4to. 120 pages. 27 cm. Only edition. This collection of printed ephemera and canonical texts depicts the development of Jewish cultural and religious life from the seventeenth through the twentieth centuries, from the first communities in the Caribbean to the mass immigration of the first quarter of the twentieth century. This catalog was published in conjunction with the exhibition People of Faith - Land of Promise held at the Library of the Jewish Theological Seminary from May 5, 2004 to September 7, 2004. Catalog written by Ari G. M. Kinsberg, guest curator; exhibition coordinated by Sharon Liberman Mintz, curator of Jewish Art. Dedicated to the memory of Rabbi Abraham Karp. The publication details the sources of 103 color photographic reproductions of Jewish Americana manuscripts, printed books, periodicals, archival papers, photographs, lithographic prints, letters, and etchings that are to be found in the extensive library of the Jewish Theological Seminary. “This exhibition underscores the various ways in which uprooted communities and individuals reconstituted themselves in a new land. The challenges of maintaining and reshaping Jewish identity in the face of assimilation and unstable socioeconomic conditions spurred the creation of fraternal and charitable organizations alongside religious institutions. Jewish life flourished not only through the development of communal structures, but also through the efforts of individuals in business, literary arts and politics. Like its constituent Jewish communities, America was in the process of inventing and reinventing itself in response to new conditions. From the late-nineteenth-century era of mass immigration through the twentieth century, Jewish life metamorphosed with its environment. American culture was translated and disseminated to the Jews, for example, through the publication of a bilingual (Yiddish-English) Constitution and Declaration of Independence in 1891. This cultural diffusion flowed in both directions. Judaism was introduced to popular American culture through such literary ventures as Emma Lazarus's innovative Songs of a Semite. ” Subjects: Jews - United States - History - Exhibitions.

  195. Cowley, Arthur Ernest; Moritz Steinschneider. A CONCISE CATALOGUE OF THE HEBREW PRINTED BOOKS IN THE BODLEIAN LIBRARY. Oxford; Clarendon Press, 1971. Publishers cloth. 8vo. VII, 816 pages. 25 cm. Second edition. Based upon M. Steinschneider's 'Catalogus librorum hebraeorum in bibliotheca Bodleiana' (1852-60) . “The [Bodleian] Library now comprises about 3, 100 Hebrew and Samaritan manuscripts – still perhaps qualitatively the most important in the world – as well as a remarkably full collection of early printed works. The manuscripts have been described fully in the catalog (vol. I, ed. By A. Neubauer, 1886; vol. II, ed. By A. Cowley, 1906) . In 1994 a ‘Supplement of Addenda and Corrigenda’ to the catalog was printed. The printed books formed the material for M. Steinschneider's fundamental work of Hebrew bibliography (Catalogus Librorum Hebraeorum in Bibliotheca Bodleiana, 1852–60) – not, however, restricted to books – and of the more succinct recent catalog edited by A. Cowley (1929) . ” (EJ 2007) In 1848 Steinschneider “was charged with the preparation of the catalogue of the Hebrew books in the Bodleian Library, Oxford (‘Catalogus Librorum Hebræorum in Bibliotheca Bodleiana, ’ Berlin, 1852-60), a work which was to occupy him thirteen years, in the course of which he spent four summers in Oxford. … The gigantic Bodleian catalogue laid the foundation of his reputation as the greatest Jewish bibliographer. ” (Jewish Encyclopedia 1906) “Sir Arthur Ernest Cowley (1861–1931), English Orientalist and bibliographer. Cowley's main interest from his school days was Hebrew and Jewish studies, but at Oxford he studied classics and his Semitic scholarship was largely self-taught. He became A. Neubauer 's assistant in the Bodleian Library in 1896, succeeded him in 1899, and from 1919 was himself the Bodleian's librarian. Cowley's achievements in Jewish scholarship are paleographical, bibliographical, and interpretative. He published (at first with Neubauer) recovered Hebrew portions of Ecclesiasticus (1897, 1901), and (at first with A. H. Sayce) the Assouan (Elephantine ) Jewish-Aramaic papyri (1906, 1923) . He completed vol. 2 of Neubauer's catalog of Bodleian Hebrew manuscripts and produced a concise catalog of its Hebrew printed books (1929, reduced from Steinschneider's catalog) . Besides the papyri, Cowley edited – as his main work – The Samaritan Liturgy (2 volumes, 1909) . He taught rabbinics for the university, and a lectureship at Oxford in post-biblical Hebrew commemorates his name. ” (EJ 2007) Subjects: Hebrew literature - Bibliography - Catalogs.

In Italian and English. Title translates as: “The Synagogue of Silver: Jewish Art and Spirituality in Casale Monferrato. ” With decorative endpages and 63 color illustrations. Published on the four hundredth year anniversary of the founding of the Synagogue of the Jewish Community of Monferrato, this detailed catalogue both elucidates the responsibilities and areas of the Museum at the Synagogue (Casale Monferrato) as well as highlights various parchments and objects from the collections of the synagogue, one of the oldest in Italy. With an excellent chronology of the community composed of numerous quotations from legal, literary, historical, and rabbinical sources. The first traces of the Jewish Community in Monferrato in the Piedmont date from 1492, that of the time of the expulsion from Spain. For centuries, the community there was both subject to extensively oppressive laws, as well as periods of respite. The Jewish ghetto in Monferrato was the second largest in Italy for centuries; with the 1848 revolution the community finally gained equal rights, and by the early 20th century the community shrank considerably as the inhabitants of Monferrato settled elsewhere in larger cities. There is still a sizeable Jewish community in Monferrato to this day, and the Comunità Ebraica di Casale Monferrato, with the sponsorship of the Unione delle Comunità Ebraiche Italiane (whose vice-president the author is), stands as an exemplary archive and museum to preserve the memory of Italian Jewish community history.

Includes bibliographical references and indexes. This very-well received work elicited many reviews in the Jewish Studies press; see Steven Fine: “Review of Neil Danzig, A Catalog of Fragments …” in Hebrew Studies, vol. 41 (2000); as well as Ezra Chwat, “Danzig’s Catalog of Halakhah and Midrash Fragments in the E.N. Adler Collection and its Usage as a Research Tool,” in Jewish Quarterly Review 90, 3-4 (2000): 405-415. The book also received this praise from Heidi G. Lerner & Seth Jerchower in their “The Penn/Cambridge Genizah Fragment Project: Issues in Description, Access, and Reunification” (Philadelphia, 2006): "Danzig’s 1997 catalog of Rabbinic fragments at the Library of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, while oriented upon the holdings of one local collection, exhaustively provides cross-matches and concordances. " The Cairo Geniza is a collection of almost 280,000 Jewish manuscript fragments found in the Genizah or storeroom of the Ben Ezra Synagogue in Fustat, presently Old Cairo, Egypt. Some additional fragments were found in the Basatin cemetery east of Old Cairo, and the collection includes a number of old documents bought in Cairo in the later 19th century. It is presently dispersed among a number of libraries, including the libraries of Cambridge University and the University of Manchester…. In 1896, English travelers Agnes S. Lewis and Margaret D. Gibson returned from Egypt with fragments from the genizah they considered to be of interest, and showed them to Solomon Schechter at Cambridge. Schechter, already aware of the Genizah but not of its significance, immediately recognized the importance of the material. He later went to Egypt, acquired many documents, and brought the contents of the Genizah to scholarly and popular attention….The Taylor-Schechter collection at Cambridge has nearly 193,000 fragments (137,000 shelf-marks); there are a further 31,000 fragments at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America. Also, the John Rylands University Library in Manchester holds a collection of over 11,000 fragments…” (Wikipedia, 2011). SUBJECT(S): Cairo Genizah -- Catalogs.

First edition. In German. Original cloth, with gilt lettering on cover and spine. “Heinrich Graetz, an appreciation of the Historian and Jew on the 100th birthday, October 21st, 1917”, a biographical appreciation of the historical contributions of Heinrich Graetz, written by Josef Meisl, a respected Berlin archivist, historian, and later founder of the Jewish Historical General Archives. Includes source documents and frontispiece portrait of Heinrich Graetz. Heinrich Graetz (1817 -1891) was amongst the first historians to write a comprehensive history of the Jewish people from a Jewish perspective. Born Tzvi Hirsh Graetz to a butcher family in Xions (Ksiaz Wielkopolski), Poznan, in Prussia (now in Poland), he obtained his doctorate from the University of Jena though he had attended Breslau University because Jews at the time were barred from receiving Ph. D. S at that institution. After 1845 he was principal of the Jewish Orthodox school of the Breslau community, and later taught history at the Jewish Theological Seminary in Breslau (now Wroclaw, Poland) . His magnum opus “History of the Jews” was quickly translated into other languages and ignited worldwide interest in Jewish history. In 1869 the University of Breslau granted him the title of Honorary Professor; in 1888 he was appointed an Honorary Member of the Spanish Royal Academy of Sciences.

  305. THE PRATO HAGGADAH. [New York, Jewish Theological Seminary], 2006 (ca. 1300). Full leather, 14 x 21 cm, 160 pp + commentary. The Prato Haggadah (Spain, ca.1300) is an unfinished illuminated manuscript of 85 leaves, written on fine calf parchment. Folios 1–53 are written in a square Sephardic script and folios 54–68 are written in a square Italo-Ashkenazic script, using a different ink. The illumination of 30 pages is virtually complete. 58 are unfinished, with preparatory drawings and possibly some gesso and color, 50 have text only and the remaining pages are blank. Many of the pages have illuminated initial word panels, comparable to illuminated initials in Christian or secular manuscripts. Throughout, illustrations accompany the text, such as the depiction of the four sons, and illustrations of matza and maror (bitter herbs). Preparatory drawings depicting the story of Noah and the flood appear at the end of the manuscript. Margins are replete with fanciful drawings of hybrid creatures, imaginary birds, drolleries and climbing vines. The codex is especially fascinating because it demonstrates the making of a manuscript in the Middle Ages, enabling us to view its illumination after the text was written: the preparatory drawings, the laying down of gesso in order to cushion the gold leaf, the application of gold and silver leaf, and ultimately the application of pigments. The skill of the artist is of a very high order, both in the preparatory drawings and in the completed pages, whose brilliant colors look as fresh today as when they were applied. Printed and bound as an exact replica of the highest quality of the 13th Century illuminated manuscript in appropriate leather boards and parchment-like leaves. Limited edition of 250 copies. A treasure to behold. Leaf through the haggadah online at http://www.jtslibrarytreasures.org/prato/prato.html. $4700.00

SUBJECT (S): Jewish illumination of books and manuscripts. Title Subject: Prato Haggadah -- Facsimiles. Haggadah (Ms. Prato Haggadah) . Haggadah --Illustrations. Haggadah (Sephardic) . This is the companion volume to the facsimile edition of the Prato Hagadah, a Sephardic Haggadah produced in Spain, ca. 1300, with incomplete illuminations. The manuscript lacks a colophon, but contains an Italian censor’s signature dated 1617. This companion volume (107 pages: color illustrations) contains an introduction and essays by David Kraemer ... [et al. ] and is edited by Naomi M. Steinberger. Includes bibliographical referenes. OCLC lists 4 copies worldwide (JTS, Metropolitan Museum of Art, University of Pennsylvania, British Library) . “Nothing at all is known of either the patron or scribe of the Prato Haggadah, and little is known of its whereabouts from the time it was produced in Spain, around 1300, until the time it was acquired by the JTS Library in l964. While the haggadah's text is written in accordance with the Spanish rite, at some point additional text, which included liturgical poems of the Ashkenazic rite, was added, most likely in Italy. A 1617 signature of an Italian church censor, Giovanni Domenico Carretto is proof that the manuscript actually was in Italy at the beginning of the seventeenth century. Nothing further is known of the haggadah's history until 1928, when it was in the possession of Dr. Ludwig Pollak, a native of Prague living in Rome. A distinguished humanist and collector of classical art, literary manuscripts, books and Judaica, Dr. Pollak promised the haggadah to his friend Rabbi David Prato, Chief Rabbi of Rome. After disagreements with the Fascist authorities in the late 1930s, Rabbi Prato moved to Palestine. Dr. Pollak, his wife and son, along with other members of the Jewish community of Rome, were deported to Auschwitz, where they perished. After the war, Rabbi Prato was recalled to his previous position in Rome and served the community until his death in 1951. Shortly after the Rabbi's demise, his only son Jeonathan, an Israeli diplomat en route to his post in Buenos Aires, was visited by the sister-in-law of Dr. Pollak in Rome. Knowing of Dr. Pollak's intention to donate the manuscript to the rabbi, she fulfilled the promise and gave the haggadah to the rabbi's only surviving heir. The Prato Haggadah was purchased by the JTS Library in 1964. The art of the Prato Haggadah is witty and imaginative. The manuscript is replete with decorated initial word panels, foliate ornamentation, and hybrid figures. Several illustrations relate directly to the text... The Prato Haggadah contains motifs common in medieval manuscripts, and many folios reflect the artist's sense of humor... For reasons that remain obscure, the manuscript's illumination was never completed. It is precisely the unfinished nature of the codex that allows the viewer to see the stages of production of an illuminated manuscript: the scribal arrangement of the text; the artist's preparatory drawings; the application of gesso to cushion gold or silver leaf; the addition of the leaf; the painting of a wide variety of pigments; and the outlining of the illuminations with ink. The text of the Prato Haggadah is also distinctive. Although it includes the standard biblical, talmudic, and midrashic texts, as well as the liturgical poetry common to other Spanish Haggadot, the Prato Haggadah lacks all elements associated with the Passover meal. Kiddush, blessings for matzah and maror, instructions for the feast itself, and grace after meals are absent. Scholars have suggested that Haggadot of this kind may have been written to be read publicly in the synagogue, after which people would return to their homes for the meal. This phenomenon is found in other Spanish Haggadot and is explained by medieval sources as satisfying the requirement to recount the story of the Exodus for people unable to lead or attend a seder. Many Sephardic Jews immigrated to Italy following the expulsions from the Iberian Peninsula at the end of the fifteenth century, often taking their manuscripts with them. Though we do not know when the Prato Haggadah left Spain, the manuscript includes an Ashkenazic liturgical section probably added in northern Italy in the sixteenth century and a censor's signature from Italy dated 1617. In addition, the volume contains many textual emendations and corrections inserted over several centuries. Though the Spanish or Ashkenazic sections of the manuscript cannot be definitively dated or localized, scribal practices and liturgical variants provide a general overview of the history of the manuscript and its owners” (JTS 2010) .

Fascimile edition of the 1526 book. In Hebrew with accompanying introductory booklet in German. Title, imprint, and series statement from introductory pamphlet (14 pages, laid in) . Edited by Benzion Katz and Heinrich Loewe. Reproduction of the Frankfurter Stadtbibliothek copy of the original edition, printed by Gershom ben Solomon, ha-Kohen, in Prague in 1526. “Playing a pivotal role in the development of the illustrated Haggadah was Gershom ben Solomon ha-Kohen's Haggadah, published in Prague in 1526. Typography of this Haggadah, which alternates small and large letters, and contains inverted letters at the end of many lines was a common feature of texts produced by scribes and preserved the look of manuscript Haggadahs. Kohen's Haggadah included sixty woodcut illustrations and played a critical role in establishing the iconographic genres among Haggadahs well into the twentieth century. One example is the four woodcuts on the pages describing the famed "four sons. " Not only are all the sons clothed in Renaissance fashion, but more importantly the "wicked son" is depicted as a traditional soldier of the period. While his uniform would change to fit current fashions, the wicked son appeared for many centuries in the form of a soldier, thus linking wickedness with war for the Jewish people in the early modern and modern periods. In addition, one can see several pages later a pictorial rendition of Pharaoh in a tub, a theme which is present in Haggadahs well into the twentieth century. Drawing on the rabbinic legend that Pharaoh bathed in a tub filled with the blood of Jewish children in order to cure himself of a disease, the Prague Haggadah offers a pictorial tradition which enabled all participants at the seder table to appreciate rabbinic interpretations and tradition. ” (Center for Judaic Studies Penn Libraries Exhibit) Printed in the series “Monumenta Hebraica et Judaica” as book one.

CHILD AND ADOLESCENT BEHAVIOR UNDER STRESS: AN ANALYTICAL TOPICAL GUIDE TO A COLLECTION OF AUTOBIOGRAPHIES OF JEWISH YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN IN POLAND (1932-1939) IN THE POSSESSION OF THE YIVO INSTITUTE FOR JEWISH RESEARCH: TERMINAL PROGRESS REPORT. New York; Yivo Institute For Jewish Research, 1965. Original wraps. 4to. [68] pages. 28 cm. First edition. In English, with a one page Yiddish abstract at the end. Monograph concerned with the content and analytic tools to study the collection of Autobiographies from Poland. Written by Moses David Kligsberg (1901-1975), born in Warsaw, in a family of rabbinic lineage. “In 1917 Moses Kligsberg joined the Yugnt Bund Tsukunft, the young people's organization of the Jewish Labor Bund. He was a member of the Central Committee of the Tsukunft and secretary of its Warsaw branch. From 1921 to 1923 he worked as a librarian at the Groser Bibliotek in Warsaw. Thereafter he taught natural science, mathematics and general studies to youth workers in night schools run by the unions. From 1930 until the outbreak of the Second World War, Moses Kligsberg was Secretary of the Gezelshaft tsu Farshpreytn Bildung tsvishn Yidishe Arbeter (Organization for Educating Jewish Workers), and ran their night school. At the same time he was involved in numerous cultural and educational projects for the Tsukunft. … In 1938 Moses Kligsberg's monograph Yugnt psikhologye un sotsialistishe dertsiung (Youth Psychology and Socialist Education) was published by the Kultur Lige. Thus began Moses Kligsberg's specialization in 'yugnt forshung' (youth research) . In 1939 he sent the manuscript of his unpublished article "Di psikhologye fun shpil un estetishn genus" to YIVO in Vilna, and was then invited by Max Weinreich to participate in the YIVO aspirant (YIVO research fellow) . With the outbreak of the second World War Moses Kligsberg found refuge in as-yet unoccupied Vilna as a YIVO aspirant. There he began a project of analyzing the collection of youth autobiographies under the title "Perzenlekhe tsiln un gezelshaftlekhe idealn bay der yidisher yugnt in poyln". In 1940, when the Soviet army occupied Vilna, Moses Kligsberg sent his collected notes and materials to the newly-established YIVO in New York. Moses Kligsberg was granted a special visa and came to New York via Kobe (Japan) in April, 1941. He joined the YIVO staff as Max Weinreich's assistant in charge of research projects. In that capacity, after the war Moses Kligsberg corresponded with East European Jewish refugees around the world, asking them to collect materials for YIVO again. As secretary of the contest committee, he organized and administered three YIVO essay contests: 1) Autobiographies of Immigrants (1942); 2) The Experience of Jewish soldiers in World War II (1946); and 3) Supplementary Contest among participants in the autobiographies contest (1953) . He was the project manager for the Yiddish language publication of Herman Kruk's Vilna Ghetto diary and oversaw several other YIVO publication projects. He was also a consultant to the Max Weinreich Center for Advanced Jewish Studies. For over thirty years Moses Kligsberg was in charge of all publicity work for YIVO. In 1950 he was appointed editor of the Yedies fun yivo (YIVO News), which position he retained until the end of his days. He wrote the Yiddish version of the Yedies, which was originally translated to English by Shlomo Noble, and later was translated and written by others. … Though lacking in formal degrees, Moses Kligsberg had scholarly ambitions and considered himself a sociologist. It was his lifelong ambition to write a sociological analysis of Jewish youth in Poland based on the Vilna YIVO autobiographies which came out of the contest that took place before World War II. The book never came to be, but Kligsberg wrote and published numerous articles related to the autobiographies and/or Jewish youth inYIVO Bleter / The YIVO Annual, and other journals. Notably, his 100-page article "Di yidishe yugnt bavegung in poyln tsvishn beyde velt milkhomes" (The Jewish Youth Movement in Poland between the Two World Wars), appeared in Studies on Polish Jewry 1919-1939 in 1974. Since his arrival in the United States, Moses Kligsberg was an active member of the American branch of the Jewish Labor Bund. He was secretary of the Foreign Delegation of the Tsukunft, and as such maintained correspondence with Bund and Tsukunft leaders around the world, many of whom were also his personal friends from Poland. Moses Kligsberg helped organize and coordinate Bund youth groups and activities in New York, including a branch of SKIF, the children's movement of the Bund. He was an editor, together with Alexander Erlich and Sholem Hertz, of Yugnt veker, the magazine published by the Bund in the United States. Moses Kligsberg was also a founder and driving spirit of Camp Hemshekh, the Catskills (New York) summer camp run by the Bund from 1959-1978.“ (YIVO) Subjects: Jews - Poland - Biography.

New York; Yivo Institute For Jewish Research, 1960-1962. (FT) Publishers cloth. 4to. XXXI, 425; 433, X; XXXI, 330 pages. 28 cm. First edition. Three volumes. All volumes in English, Hebrew, and Yiddish. “Joint documentary projects; Bibliographical series” published jointly by Yivo and Yad Vashem Martyrs' and Heroes' Memorial Authority. These first three volumes in the joint bibliographical series were edited and compiled by Philip Friedman; (1906-1960) a Polish-Jewish Historian, who taught at a Hebrew secondary school in Lodz and at YIVO-Vilna before the war. He survived the holocaust, gathered data on nazi war crimes, testified at the Nuremberg Trials, and lectured at Colombia University and JTSA after emigrating. “Friedman was a member of the YIVO staff and director of the bibliographical series of the Joint Documentary Projects of YIVO and Yad Vashem. Almost all Friedman's postwar publications dealt with the Holocaust period, on which he became a leading expert…The bibliographies of the Holocaust which he edited are Guide to Jewish History under Nazi Impact (coeditor J. Robinson, 1960), Bibliography of Books in Hebrew on the Jewish Catastrophe and Heroism in Europe (1960), and Bibliography of Yiddish Books on the Catastrophe and Heroism (coeditor J. Gar, 1962) . “ (EJ 2007) . “The first volume in the series is the Guide to Jewish History Under Nazi Impact, which appeared toward the end of 1960. Although its scope is far more than that of a bibliography, it is nonetheless designated so because of its many references to valuable works, including bibliographies. The second volume in this series is the Bibliography of Books in Hebrew on the Jewish Catastrophe and Heroism in Europe. The present third volume is its twin. The second records publications in Hebrew, the sacred language (leshon hakodesh), whereas this volume records the publications in Yiddish, the language of the martyrs (leshon hakedoshim), to use an apposite formulation by the late Chaim Weizmann. Jewish sources are their common denominator. … Although every volume in the bibliographical series is a separate book, the bond between the Hebrew and Yiddish volumes is strong. We do, in fact, regard the entire series as a unit, and so do not describe again entries that have been described in previous volumes. ” (From the Foreword to Volume Three) Subjects: Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) - Bibliography. Jews - Germany - History - 1933-1945 - Bibliography. Yiddish literature - Bibliography. All three volumes contain light pencil or pen marks on endpages.

The son of Elijah Klatzkin, a prominent rabbinical scholar, who gave him a thorough education in all branches of traditional Jewish studies. At the age of 18, Klatzkin went to Germany, first to Frankfurt on the Main and then to Marburg, where he studied philosophy under Hermann Cohen . He received his doctorate from the University of Berne in 1912. In the following years Klatzkin was active in Germany as a writer for Hebrew periodicals, including Ha-Zeman, Ha-Shilo'a?, and Ha-Tekufah, and as editor of Die Welt, the organ of the Zionist Organization (1909–11), and later in Heidelberg, of the Freie Zionistische Blaetter. From 1912 to 1915 he was director of the Jewish National Fund in Cologne. From 1915 to 1919 he edited the Swiss Bulletin Juif, which covered world events of special relevance to Jews during World War I and established the publishing firm Al ha-Mishmar, which issued a series of books on Jewish problems in French and German. In Berlin Klatzkin founded another publishing house, Eshkol, and continued writing for the Jewish press. In 1924 he and his lifelong friend Nahum Goldmann initiated the Encyclopaedia Judaica, of which ten volumes (to the article "Lyra") appeared between 1928 and 1934. Two volumes of a parallel Hebrew edition, En? Iklopedyah Yisre'elit, were issued in 1929–32. Klatzkin acted as editor in chief in cooperation with leading Jewish scholars. Although the advent of Hitler prevented the publication of the remaining volumes, what was published continues to be an important reference work. After the curtailment of the publication of the encyclopedia, Klatzkin took refuge first in Switzerland and then in the U. S., where he lectured at the College of Jewish Studies in Chicago. In 1947, after a further period in New York, he returned to Switzerland. ” (From the 2007 Encyclopaedia Judaica) Subjects: Jews -- Encyclopedias. Encyclopedias, German. Judentum.

Later wrappers. 12mo. VII, 175, [1] pages. 20 cm. First edition. In German and Hebrew. Title translates as: “Towards the Knowledge of Modern Hebrew Religious Poetry: a Contribution to Literary History, together with Hebrew Inserts. ” This volume serves as a comprehensive survey of modern Hebrew poetry and grammatical innovations, with a selections of Hebrew poems. Leopold Dukes was a “Hungarian historian of Jewish literature; born at Presburg, Hungary, 1810; died at Vienna Aug. 3, 1891. He studied Talmudical literature in the yeshibah of Moses Sofer, rabbi of Presburg; but his passion for Biblical studies, which found no sympathy in his native town, led him to the yeshibah of Wörzburg, where he also devoted himself to the acquisition of a secular education. After a prolonged stay at Wörzburg he returned home; but displeased with the manners of his fellow citizens, and impelled by a thirst for knowledge, he visited the principal European cities in which there were libraries containing Hebrew manuscripts. He lived successively at Munich, Tübingen, Hanover, Hamburg, Paris, Leipsic, Oxford, and then spent about twenty years in London. Dukes was an original character, a fact due probably to his solitary life and privations. His scholarship was extensive and exact, and his works cover the fields of exegesis, Haggadah, grammar, Masorah, the history of literature, ethics, and poetry. In all of these he made many ingenious and important discoveries; and his books became indispensable supplements to those of Zunz, Rapoport, and Krochmal. ” Dukes made many contributions to philology, but his best work was connected with the medieval Hebrew poetry (1906 Jewish Encyclopedia) .

Title translates as: “Additions and Corrections to my Bibliographic Handbook of the Literature for Hebrew Language Studies, Leipzig 1859.” Moritz Steinschneider (1816-1907) was a respected Austrian-Jewish Bibliographer, expert Talmudist, and established secular scientist. He was an important librarian at the Bodleian Library in London as well as that of the Royal Library in Berlin. “It is a characteristic feature of Steinschneider's vast literary activity that he chose fields far removed from that of theology proper, e. G., mathematics, philology, natural history, and medicine, endeavoring t? Ereby to display the part which the Jews had taken in the general history of civilization ("Kulturgeschichte") . Thus while Zunz had laid the foundations of Jewish science, Steinschneider completed many essential parts of the structure. He was the first to give a systematic survey of Jewish literature down to the end of the eighteenth century, and was the first also to publish catalogues of the Hebrew books and manuscripts which are found in the great public libraries of Europe. The gigantic Bodleian catalogue laid the foundation of his reputation as the greatest Jewish bibliographer. This and the catalogues of the libraries of Leyden, Munich, Hamburg, and Berlin, as well as the twenty-one volumes of his "Hebräische Bibliographie, " form an inexhaustible mine of information on all branches of Jewish history and literature. ” (1906 Jewish Encyclopedia) .

First edition. “Judaism is among the least known of the religious traditions of the West, and is also among the most difficult to seek out and study. The bibliographical essays before us do much to improve matters. They are not simply lists of books, but thoughtful essays on important problems in the study of Judaism. They address serious students in the field of religion who are not experts in the study of Judaism. They recount what comes first and what comes afterward, what may be important in one way, what in another. Their collective testimony is not that the study of Judaism is too complex for the nonspecialist, but that it is a very serious and engaging undertaking. ” (Dustjacket description) Contents include: Introduction / by Jacob Neusner - Judaism in New Testament times / by Richard Bavier - Rabbinic sources / by John T.

Guillaume Francois de Bure (1731-1782) was a distinguished bibliographer of his time; he “opened a new path for bibliographers by reducing to a system what had before been left merely to tact, in his Bibliographie instructive, ou traité de la connoissance des livres rares et singuliers (Paris, 1763-68, seven vols. ) Lemercier and others attacked the work severely; yet it must be considered of much value (See Ebert’s Bibliographisches Lexicon, vol. I. P. 452.) Among his other works is to be mentioned Supplement a la Bibliographie instructive, ou Catalogue de livres du cabinet de feu M. Louis Jean Gaignat (Paris, 1769, two vols. ) ” (Page 754; The popular encyclopedia; or, 'Conversations Lexicon': ed. By A. Whitelaw from the Encyclopedia Americana) . A Bibliography of the library of Louis Jean Gaignat, “an official at the Palace of Justice in Paris, was one of the greatest bibliophiles of eighteenth century France. Charles Isaac Elton, in The Great Book Collectors, wrote ‘When Gaignat died in 1768 his collection was regarded as perfect; it was said that 'no one in the commonwealth of letters had ever brought together such a rich and admirable assembly'. After the death of his second wife in 1751 and his only daughter, Louis Jean Gaignat left his house in rue Saint Nicaise in the Louvre to live in the old hôtel de la Ferté now number 12 Rue Richelieu. His collection of paintings, famous library, rich furniture and decorative art were displayed there. In this illustrious place decorated with paintings by Mignard, the collection grew in prestige. In 1757 in his ‘Voyage pittoresque de Paris’ Dezallier d'Argenville described copiously the pieces in five pages. In this sought-after collection were four sculptures in bronze by Desjardins which are today in the Royal Collection. At the time of his death on the 11th April 1768, Gaignat was living in an apartment on the second floor of the Hôtel while his collection was located on the first floor. “ (Sotheby’s Catalogue: Treasures, Princely Taste; London, 06 Jul 2011) Subjects: Best books.

  457. Marx, Alexander. STUDIES IN JEWISH HISTORY AND BOOKLORE. New York; The Jewish Theological Seminary Of America,, 1944. Publishers cloth. O. Xiii, 458 pages. 24 cm. First edition. With 26 essays on publishing, book collectors, libraries, scholarship, and bibliographers, written by Alexander Marx (1878–1953), “historian, bibliographer and librarian. Born in Elberfeld, Germany, Marx grew up in Koenigsberg (East Prussia) . His studies were interrupted by a year in a Prussian artillery regiment where he excelled in horsemanship. Later he studied at the University of Berlin and at the Rabbiner-Seminar (Berlin), marrying in 1905 Hannah the daughter of D. Z. Hoffmann, rector of the Seminar. In Berlin, he was influenced by Moritz Steinschneider. In 1903 Marx accepted Solomon Schechter's invitation to teach history at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America and be its librarian. His mastery of the materials of history and of languages became proverbial. He published articles in many languages and was at home in classical and Semitic languages. Marx contributed monographs and articles to journals on a wide variety of subjects, published two volumes of collected essays (Studies in Jewish History and Booklore (1944); Essays in Jewish Biography (1947) ), and with Max L. Margolis wrote A History of the Jewish people (1927, 1962) . This pioneering work, stressing economic and social life, organization and legal status, offers the general reader a soundly researched, authoritative, and objective Jewish history in one volume. Marx amassed a private collection of 10, 000 books. The JTS library on his arrival in 1903 contained 5, 000 volumes and 3 manuscripts. At his death it possessed 165, 000 books and over 9, 000 Hebrew, Samaritan, Aramaic, and Yiddish manuscripts, comprising the largest Judaica collection in the world. Marx's ability to determine a manuscript's age merely by looking at it was legendary. His annual reports of the library's growth, containing a detailed description of materials acquired, were eagerly awaited by bookmen and scholars. In 1926 Marx was elected to the Medieval Academy of America; he served as president of the American Academy for Jewish Research (1931–33), president of the Alexander Kohut Memorial Foundation, vice president of the American Jewish Historical Society, and member of the publications committee of the Jewish Publication Society of America. ” (EJ 2008) Subjects: Jews - History.

Title roughly translates as: “Bibliography handbook about theoretical and practical literature for Hebrew linguistics. ” Written by Moritz Steinschneider (1816-1907), an important bibliographer and scholar; his bibliographies of medieval hebrew literature, of rare judaica at the Bodleian and other major European libraries, still serve as foundational works. “Steinschneider's literary output was tremendous, his bibliography containing more than 1, 400 items. His main lifelong interest was the study of the relationship between Jewish and general culture, especially during the medieval times. Realizing early that the preliminary requirement to carry out such a study was the thorough and scientific bibliographical recording of all the available printed and manuscript materials, Steinschneider devoted himself to the preparation of many library catalogs and subject bibliographies. In addition to his catalogs and bibliographies, he also provided general introductions to Jewish literary history and to Jewish booklore, In collecting and organizing the materials for his studies on the role of the Jews in medieval culture, his researches led him also to the study of' the history of' medieval philosophy, and especially that of' medieval medicine, the sciences, and mathematics. His works are not only a contribution to Jewish learning but also to Arabic literature and to general medieval cultural history. ” (EJ 2008) Subjects: Hebrew philology - Bibliography.
