And about 400 volumes of rare books] is the first in the Hebrew language to be printed in this land. ’ (p.6) . Deinard compiled it in eight days (KA) . Among the entries are thirty-three American imprints. Deinard bemoaned the fact that Jews cared little for their own literary heritage; rather than establish Jewish libraries, they sold all their books and manuscripts to gentile institutions. He felt that conditions in America were auspicious for the establishment of Jewish libraries, but with the exception of a handful of individuals, among them Sulzberger, wealthy Jews were not interested (pp. 5-6) . Sulzberger lated donated his own private library, amassed by Deinard, to JTSA and it provided the foundation of what would become the most important Judaica library in the western hemisphere. It was ‘Deinard’s first major breakthrough in setting up a Hebrew Judaica collection’ (Wilk, 122) . " (Goldman, Hebrew Printing in America, entry # 255) . Singerman 5095.
