Series Information
The Brill Reference Library of Judaism, 37

Description: Further Studies in the Making of the Early Hebrew Book contains essays on aspects of the early Hebrew book most often treated in a cursory manner if addressed at all. The largest section of the volume is concerned with the makers and places of Hebrew books, mainly addressing book-makers poorly remembered or controversial and print-shops that issued a small number of books in a brief period of time. The section on varia addresses aspects of the book trade such as small books, incomplete books published as a prospectus, competing simultaneous editions, and errors and variations in books. Two smaller sections deal with book arts such as incunabula frames and pressmarks; variations between medieval and current Sephardic Haggadot.

Subjects: Bible, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, Mishnah, Talmudic and Rabbinic Literature, Other Rabbinic Works, Other Literature, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches, History
