Hebrew Incunabula at the Library of Congress: A Short-Title List

Hebrew Incunabula Titles

The 37 Hebrew incunabula in the Library of Congress listed on this page are divided between the Hebraic Section (with 24 books), and the Rare Book and Special Collections Division (13 books). Altogether they represent 30 different titles; 7 titles have copies in both sections and these are marked in the guide with an asterisk.

The incunabula have been listed chronologically, a decision facilitated by the practice of early Hebrew printers in giving not only the year of publication but also the month and the day. In the few cases where dates are conjectural, these have been listed with a question mark.

Citations to the Reference Works are indicated for each title using the abbreviation followed by a number or other internal indicator.
