Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Studies in the Making of the Early Hebrew Book contains the table of contents and a preface. The book is divided into three parts. It begins with book arts, discussing aspects of the Hebrew title page, beginning with a frame that today would offend religious sensibilities, consisting of a pagan motif, but was widely used in the sixteenth and into the seventeenth century. The second part is concerned with the makers and places of Hebrew books. It talks about little known print-shops and individuals, whether printers or makers of Hebrew books in other capacities. The final part is titled 'Miscellanea' and deals with the sale of books through catalogues, the worker to book production ratio, and working on Hebrew books on Shabbat.

Keywords: book arts; Hebrew books; print-shops; Shabbat
