Maisel, a bookseller and publisher of modern Yiddish literature, was born in Riga, and opened his bookstore on the Lower East Side of New York in 1893. His publishing and book selling activities coincided with the height of the mass immigration, and lasted thereafter into the 1950s. Maisel strove to develop and widen modern Yiddish literature. Following the program of the Czernowitz Conference (1908) , he published original and translated works in Yiddish in various fields: fiction, science, and philosophy, as well as textbooks for the children of the Yiddishist secular schools. In the interwar period, along with his close friend Chaim Zhitlovski, he was active in various organizations for promoting the Yiddish culture such as YIVO and Yidisher Kultur Gezelshaft. His New York bookstore mirrored the Yiddish readership in the United States and beyond. Subjects: Booksellers' catalogs. Yiddish Literature Catalogue. New York Max N. Maisel Publisher.
