New Book Title: Brad Sabin Hill, The Marmorstein Collection [A Guide]
Publisher: Centre for Jewish Studies, University of Manchester
Description: Arthur Marmorstein (1882-1946) was a prominent Hungarian-born rabbi, theologian and proponent of Wissenschaft des Judentums, based at Jews’ College, London. His collection holds over 250 titles printed before 1800, most in Hebrew and a few in Yiddish. There are over 20 volumes from the 16th century, most in Hebrew; some 45 volumes from the 17th century, all but a handful in Hebrew; and nearly 200 vols from the 18th century, some 170 of them in Hebrew and a dozen non-Hebrew. A work of extraordinary scholarship, Sabin Hill’s Guide is intended to present the collection’s thematic richness, linguistic variety, geographic range and printing-historical significance, and thereby render it more meaningful to scholars and students in diverse fields.
