About this Item

8vo. 132 pages. In German. Volume 1, Nos. 1-6. Complete 1st volume. Reprint. SUBJECT (S) : Hebrew literature – bibliography – periodicals; Jews – bibliography – periodicals. OCLC lists 9 copies worldwide. Born in Moravia, Steinscheider (1816-1907) was the "father of modern Jewish bibliography. " In the early part of his life, he was a Jack-of-all-trades, teaching languages in private homes and in schools (his students included Solomon Schecter) , administering the Jewish oath, officiating at weddings, translating textbooks, and preaching. In 1869, he was appointed to the Royal Library of Berlin, where he remained for the rest of his life. Originally in pursuit of his own work, Steinscheider compiled library catalogs – at a time when there was no particular cataloging system – and topical bibliographies. He also cataloged the books printed prior to 1732 in Bodleian Library in Oxford, at particular invitation from its head librarian, creating the Catalogus Librorum Hebraeorum in Bibliotheca Bodleiana.
