About this Item

Cloth, 8vo, 23 cm, xvii, 417 pp, ills, facs. From the blurb: "The importance of the work of the Jewish scholar printers in Italy received in this work its first true appraisal. Publications of the Soncino and Bomberg families and later printers are given careful and detailed examination in this well-illustrated book, which has been out of print for many years. This survey of Hebrew books is of fundamental significance to the study of Jewish history, stating as it does the degree of culture, the scope of interests and intellectual activity of the Jewish people." From the preface: "Some of the chapters of this book originally appeared as a series of articles entitled "Hebrew printers and printing in Italy" published in the Jewish Exponent of Philadelphia in 1906-1907. These have been revised and enlarged." Very Good in dustwrapper. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-32736
