The story of my library



The distinguished Romanian Jewish linguist, literary historian and folklorist Moses Gaster(Bucharest, 1856-London, 1939) assembled an enormous library in his fields of interest and specialization: Hebraica and Judaica, Samaritana, and Romanian and related studies. Gaster's library was divided between a number of institutions over the course of nearly forty years, both during his lifetime and in the generation after his death.
