Simons Lauds Kaufman Library
Project, Relates Values of Books

Bibliophile Leonard N.
Simons, in an address at
Sabbath morning services of
Cong. Beth Abraham-Hillel,
last Saturday, commended
the congregation for esablish-
ing the • Nathan J. Kaufman
Library. At the same time,
he praised Judge Kaufman
for his many services to the
In his address, Simons
pointed to the value of books
in Jewish life.
On his own, covering a
period of many years, Simons
accumulated a Judaica col-
lection of more than 3,000
volumes. When the Simonses
moved from a house to an
apartment, he gave the col-
lection to the Brandeis Uni-
versity Library "and cried
like I had lost one of my
best friends."
He described how he had
benefited from many schol-
ars. On that score he quoted
from Dr. Jacob Marcus the
following "tidbits":
"The first book published
in North America was the
Bay Psalm Book in 1640.

This is a metrical translation
into English, of the Hebrew
psalm book.
"The first Hebrew book
published in America was a
Hebrew grammar by Judah
Monis, He was professor of
Hebrew at Harvard College.
"David Franks, one of the
richest Jews in America at
the time of the Revolution,
had such an extensive library
that when the family decided
to sell his library, they pub-
lished a catalogue describing
the books he had. This was
the first large library owned
by a Jew in America.
"The first public Jewish li-
brary in the U. S. was called
Maimonides Library. It was
established by Bnai Brith in
New York City in 1850."
Simons also quoted Dr.

Solomon Freehof :
"When Jewish books were
first being printed—they were

never published in large edi-
tions. Traditionally, we have
had the troublesome combi-
nation of intelligence and
poverty. And, due to our pov-
erty, our books were pub-
lished in very small editions
and in out-of-the-way places.
The Jewish owners of these
books wandered over the
world, suffered successive ex-
pulsions, and often only two
or three copies of Jewish
books of a few centuries ago
remain in existence. And
sometimes there is only one
book left. Such a book is.
called a unicum.7
Yeshiva University, The
Jewish Theological Seminary
and the HUC-JIR libraries
are places where you will
find a unicum, but there are
very few unica left in the
world today.

Whatever a man's age, he
can reduce it several years
by putting a bright-colored
flower in his buttonhole. —
Mark Twain.

advice . . . "Go out and eat Kosher,
