Sunday, November 8, 2-4pm
Gelman Library, Room 702
Enjoy a panel discussion on a broad panorama of typography from far-flung presses, from the Maghreb to China and from Central Asia to India, South Africa and the Antipodes. “Hebrew Printing in the Orient,” an exhibit drawn from the I. Edward Kiev Collection, includes texts in Aramaic and the various languages of Oriental Jewry, including Ladino (Judeo-Spanish), Judeo-Arabic, Judeo-Persian and Marathi. Among the rarities is a copy of Hok le-Yisra'el (Cairo, 1740), one of the first books ever printed in Egypt.
The Kiev Collection at The George Washington University was established in 1996 with the donation of the large personal library of I. Edward Kiev, one of the preeminent Judaica librarians of the 20th century. Together with books in western languages, German-Jewish graphic art, and extensive bibliographic literature in which Kiev was expert, the collection holds Hebraica printed around the world over the course of five centuries.
