Hungarian Academy Publishes Catalogue of Rare Hebrew Manuscripts

A catalogue of works dealing with Hebrew learning and lore, containing listings of upward of 600,000 manuscripts and many thousands of rare and ancient Jewish books, has been published in Budapest, according to a dispatch reaching here today from Hungary.

The catalogue was compiled and edited by the Hungarian Academy of Science. It has been issued in four languages by the Kaufman Collection of Budapest. Orientalists throughout the world will be notified by the Budapest publishers which are ready, according to the dispatch, to furnish the catalogue to scholars in all countries.
