the essay and in the principle branches of research. No doubt
the categories omitted here would add to the variety of the
literary productivity of our country as seen from the abundance
of new books published (four or five books a day).
I shall, however, merely mention some of these missing cate-
gories which include: collections, compilations, yearbooks, biblio-
graphies, various anthologies, new editions of books, among
which are collected works of authors that were widely distributed
this year (works of Agnon, an edition of the classics by “Dvir,”
etc.), encyclopedias for all ages, Zionist literature, the Yishuv
and its history, books on Jewish communities, books of doom,
rabbinics, jubilee books, memoirs, original and translated archae-
ological books, all sorts of translations from many languages
from scientific books to the latest best sellers (Novokoff, Saigon,
Yael Dayan and others), children’s and juvenile books, general
scientific books, text books, sport, etc.
A new phenomenon in Hebrew literature is the mass distribu-
tion by the newspapers of low-priced books. Thousands of copies
were thus distributed, from the Talmud and ancient literature
to pocketbook editions of original works and translations. Also
worthy of note are the works of American authors published in
Israel.
In the following selection, many books were not considered.
Those interested in a complete list will find one in the detailed
listings published in the quarterly
Kir jath Sepher
and in the
monthly
Kuntras Bibliographi .
