Wien : Verlag Von Jacob Schlosberg's Buchhandlung, 1863. Item #38273
First edition of vol. 4. Contemporary boards. 8vo. 176 pages, 19 cm. In Hebrew. Title translates to “Ozar Nehmad: Including Treasured Writings from the Greats of Our Time on Matters of Wisdom and Faith. ” Blumenfeld (1812-1890) was a well-known publisher and merchant from Galicia. He was best known for his work in spreading Hebrew literature through the four volume Ozar Nehmad, spanning 1856-63. It features literary letters on various subjects relating to the science of Judaism, which were thus made accessible to the average Hebrew scholar. Blumenfeld himself contributed very little to the "Ozar Nehmad, " but Rapoport, Luzzatto, Geiger, and other learned contributors recognized the great service which he was rendering Jewish science by giving currency to works which, but for his generosity, would have remained unpublished. SUBJECTS: Jewish learning and scholarship. CD-EPI 0183458. Ex-library with usual markings. Very Good Condition. (HEB-50-37).
