Catalogue of the Hebrew and Samaritan Manuscripts in the British Museum. London 1899-1935. (Complete set in 4 volumes. Volumes 1-3 in reprint.)
London, 1965, and 1935. Very good set, complete in 4 volumes. Orig. cloth with dustjackets. Vol. IV without dustjacket. Slightly bumped corners in vol. 2. From the preface to the reprint: `The first three volumes of G. Margoliouth's Catalogue of the Hebrew and Samaritan manuscripts in the British Museum, here reprinted, were published consecutively in 1899, 1905 and 1915. They were followed in 1935 by the publication of a fourth volume, compiled by J. Leveen and containing comprehensive indexes of personal names, titles, subjects and place names, together with an introductory account of the history of the British Museum's collection of Hebrew manuscripts. [...] In the reprint, the plates which illustrated the first edition have been omitted. Otherwise the catalogue is unchanged. The original title ... is somewhat misleading. Despite his original intentions, Margoliouth was never able to include Samaritan mansucripts in the catalogue'. Shunami 3053. Pictures will be sent on request.
