This bibliography comprises more than 200 books selected
from a list of nearly 800 items, from September 1950 to March
1952, as it appeared in the
Kuntres Bibliografi
, of which Reuben
Levi is compiler and editor. This
Kuntres
(pamphlet) is a monthly,
published jointly by the Union of Publishers and Office for
Culture and Propaganda of the Histadrut in Israel.
This list is also subdivided into 18 headings. This compiler
hopes that the selection he made is representative and indicative
of the type of books now in demand in Israel. I t is very gratifying
to note that despite disparaging reports to the contrary, the
Hebrew classics still are in demand and that Bialik’s works, to
cite one example, enjoyed its thirteenth edition. One may cavil,
however, at the evidence of an unwarranted overproduction of
translated works. To translate best sellers willy nilly is merely
to be fashionable and ape the Western world.
I t speaks favorably for Israel’s cultural stature that the “paper
famine” notwithstanding, the publishing business is thriving and
lucrative.
The Jewish Book Council and this compiler, express their
thanks to Mr. Reuben Levi for putting at their disposal and
permitting them to use his bibliographical brochures.
