A rare library of ancient oriental and Hebrew literature has been purchased for the University of Jerusalem by the London committee of the University. The library, which consists of 6,000 volumes, was formerly the property of the learned Jewish professor Goldziher of Hungary. It is understood that the Hungarian Government has already given permission to have the library taken out of the country.
