The Latest Addition To My Collection

Sefer HaKuzari - 1833

This sefer arrived from Jerusalem yesterday and is the latest addition to my collection of seforim printed in my family's shtetl.

How much did they charge for such seyfer?

Mazal Tov I see by the year you're working closer and closer to the 1810 edition.
With your faith, I hope you will find the 1810 edition you desire in a dark dusty unvisited book store.

Were they required by law to have the copyright info in Russian? How did you track this sefer down? Do you know how many seforim in total were printed by the press in Sudilkhov?

Neil: Thanks!

A Yid: I sent you an e-mail with the information.

Bagel Blogger: 278 seforim were known to be printed in Sudilkov.
G-d willing one day I will acquire an 1810 copy!

MCAryeh: Jewish books were required to have the stamp of the censor of the Russian authorities.
