Conference Proceeding: The Home Library – Provenance and Reading Habit

Many libraries acquire their Judaica collections from private individuals. These personal collections were developed, some with purpose and direction, while others were developed more randomly. This presentation will look at the books of one personal home library that was frozen in time and place, glean from the inscriptions and stamps found therein, surmise how this collection was put together, and perhaps even learn the reading habits of the owners.
