Steinschneider (1816-1907), was the "father of modern Jewish bibliography , among the founders of the "Science of Judaism" (Wissenschaft des Judentums ). Born the son of the Talmud scholar Jacob Steinschneider and Hani Zadek-Weizenkorn in Prossnitz, Moravia, Steinschneider received his early education in his native town, where he was influenced by his uncle Gideon Brecher. He also attended a Christian school and studied music, an interest he maintained throughout his life. Steinschneider's literary output was tremendous; his bibliography contains more than 1,400 items. His main lifelong interest was the study of the relationship between Jewish and general cultures, especially during medieval times. Steinschneider spent most of his life in the pursuit of his great scholarly projects, but he also wrote some lighter belletristic and journalistic works. He also commented - though rarely - on the major contemporary events of his day and for a while was actively involved in a society founded by his friend Abraham Benisch , the aim of which was the promotion of Jewish resettlement in Erez Israel. He withdrew from the group in the early 1840s and later assumed a very negative attitude toward political Zionism" (Schmelzer in EJ 2007). OCLC lists 26 copies worldwide. Yellowing of pages.
