Conference Proceeding: The Baruch Strauss Collection at Yeshiva University

Approximately eight thousand printed volumes, most of them in Hebrew, are included in the rare collections at Yeshiva University. Many of the rare books were originally part of the library of Berthold Baruch Strauss (1901-1962), a London collector. This important collection, catalogued in part in his Ohel Barukh (1959), was acquired after his death for Yeshiva. The discussion will center on his acquisition of the volumes, some of the highlights Hebrew imprints in the collection and their most recent cataloging, and will feature some examples.
