In 2004 Dr Adri Offenberg retired as curator of the Bibliotheca Rosenthaliana, the special collection of Judaica and Hebraica at Amsterdam University Library. This article discusses his development as a bibliographer, his road to the Bibliotheca Rosenthaliana and his most important contributions to bibliographical scholarship. His greatest achievement in his many publications in the field has been the ability to introduce the principles of Anglo-Saxon analytical bibliographical scholarship into the field of Jewish bibliography. Of crucial importance are his catalogues of the Hebrew incunables in the Bibliotheca Rosenthaliana, his many publications on Amsterdam Jewish book-making of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, Hebrew and non-Hebrew, and his First International Census of Hebrew incunables. This contribution also incorporates a review of his most recent work, the thirteenth volume of the BMC, describing the Hebrew incunables in the collection of the British Library.
