First edition. Original paper wrappers. 8vo, 8 pages, 17 cm. In Hebrew. Title translates to “Ayanot’s New Release: for the 13th Zionist Congress in Carlsbad in 1923.” A publishing catalog for the small publishing firm founded by famed Jewish philosopher, Simon Rawidowicz in 1922. The catalog was printed specially for the 13th Zionist Congress (in which the Jewish Agency was conceived) and was presumably used as a marketing tool. They published more than a dozen titles during their first three years, many of which are featured in this catalog. Chaim Nahman Bialik, who was friends with Rawidowicz in Berlin, opposed the publishing house because it competed with Devir Publishing house, of which he was the editor-in-chief. (Myers, 2014) . Rawidowicz would go on to serve as chair of the Department of Near-Eastern and Judaic Studies at Brandeis University. SUBJECTS: Jewish publishing. OCLC does not list any copies. Binding is starting.
