What's New

Recent additions to our rare books collections, including our very important Avant-garde Collection:

Cased set of 100 stereographic views of historical and religious sites in modern-day Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, Jordan, and Syria, including Jaffa, Jerusalem, Temple Mount, the Wailing Wall, the Mount of Olives, Bethlehem, Hebron, the ruins of Jericho, the Dead Sea, Mount Gerizim, Samaria, Nazareth, the Sea of Galilee, the Jordan River, Damascus, and Lebanon, along with many scenes from daily life. Accompanied by an antique wooden stereoscope viewer.
  • First editions of books by Charles Reznikoff. Jewish-American writer, recognized as a key member of the Objectivist poetry movement. Many were self-published by Reznikoff on a printing press in the basement of his parents' Brooklyn home; many signed by him. Reznikoff used court records for 2 of his best-known books, documenting the life of immigrants in the early 20th century and the Holocaust.
  • Several additions to our important Dreyfus collection, including primary sources on anti-semitism, court records, and iconography.
  • Der Schlemiel - Illustriertes jüdisches Witzblatt: many issues of this early 20th century Zionist magazine of Jewish humor and self-parody.
