Please keep checking in on our bookseller's blog. Recent posts include collections of uncommon Yiddish titles. Some of the more interesting posts include a list of Sephardi imprints (mostly now sold, but with a few interesting items remaining), American Rabbinics up to 1950 (in three parts) and a short illustrated descriptive piece on a prince and pauper pair of Megillot Rut. I put a great deal of effort into a bibliographical article on the Yiddish publisher Der Kval (based on earlier work by David Mazower). The most frequently viewed post remains our piece on the publishing details of the famous Chaim Grade short story,"My quarrel with Hersh Rasseyner," Our offering of Jewish community histories from Arcadia Publications has been updated.

We are pleased to be offering two projects produced by our Yiddishist friend Joel Schechter - Rivington Street and Mazl Tov. Rivington Street is a collection of the full-page comic done by Joel in collaboration with underground comix hero Spain Rodriguez, z"l. They tell stories of great figures from the Yiddish world whose stars have sadly faded. Mazl Tov is the first translation of a one-act Sholom Aleichem play.

J - Formerly, The Jewish Bulletin of Northern California published a cover article on our business last summer. Another article from the J but from long ago is still fun. While searching out the URLs for those links I found an article from the San Francisco Business Times that quotes me foaming at the mouth about some of the big players in online bookselling. Plenty amusing.
