Heimann Joseph Michael was a “Hebrew bibliographer; born at Hamburg April 12, 1792; died there June 10, 1846. He showed great acuteness of mind in early childhood, had a phenomenal memory, and was an indefatigable student. He studied Talmudics and received also private instruction in all the branches of a regular school education. He was a born bibliophile, and began to collect valuable works when still a boy of twelve. With his progress in Hebrew literature his love for books increased also, the result of which was his magnificent library of 860 manuscripts and 5, 471 printed works, covering all branches of Hebrew literature. There were few books in his collection which he had not read; and he undertook the preparation of a full catalogue of it. As far as he accomplished this task, it was the foundation of the 'Ozerot Hayyim, Katalog der Michael'schen Bibliothek, ' Hamburg, 1848.” - 1906 JE.
