Based on the work of David Goldstein, Cyril Moss and Others. From the introduction, "This long awaited catalogue contains details of some nine thousand Hebrew printed books acquired between 1893 and 1960 by the British Library's former Department of Oriental Manuscripts and Printed Books, now part of Oriental and India Office Collections. It is a supplement to both Joseph Zedner's 'Catalogue of the Hebrew books in the Library of the British Museum (London, 1867[later reprints exist])' and Samuel van Straalen's 'Catalogue of Hebrew books in the British Museum acquired during the years 1868-1892' (London, 1894).....The acquisitions made between 1893 and 1960 cover almost the entire chronology of Hebrew books to be printed in the region of Rome between 1469 and 1472, a further six incunables printed in Spain and Portugal, and two volumes printed at Fez 1516, to examples of modern typography from Israel and America...."
