"This long-awaited catalogue contains details of some nine thousand Hebrew printed books acquired between 1893 and 1960 by the British Library's former Department of Oriental Manuscripts and Printed Books, now part of Oriental and India Office Collections. It is a supplement to both Joseph Zedner's 'Catalogue of the Hebrew books in the Library of the British Museum (London, 1867) and Samuel van Straalen's 'Catalogue of Hebrew books in the British Museum acquired during the years 1868-1892 (London, 1894)"- From the preface. "While the present catalogue contains a number of important and, in a few cases, unique additions to the holdings found in Zedner's and van Straalen's Catalogues, the majority of books acquired between 1893 and 1960 were printed in the late nineteenth and first half of the twentieth centuries. Many works reflect the depth of Jewish scholarship found in the communities and educational institutions of Central and Eastern Europe until their destruction during the Second World War. They include the publications of the Jewish seminaries at Berlin, Breslau, Budapest and Vienna, and important periodicals such as ham-Maggidh, published 1856-1903, and hat-Tekophah, published 1918-1950. Other titles, particularly among the liturgies and Bible, witness to the existence of centres of Hebrew printing in North Africa, the Near and Middle East and India. The more recently printed books, in particular, reflect the development of a modern biblical and rabbinic scholarship and a vibrant secular Hebrew literature which had its centre in the Jewish community of Palestine under the British Mandate and, after 1947, in the state of Israel." - from the introduction. Index of Titles in Hebrew Characters, Index of Non-Hebrew Titles. A few inkmarks to covers (not too noticeable on the dark green cloth), otherwise as new. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE-04360
