Sudilkov Seforim Collection Update

Antique seforim collecting has been slow the last two years. Since my last posting in November 2005, I have only added six more seforim printed in Sudilkov to my collection. During the past month alone, however, I purchased two more volumes.

My collection now consists of the following volumes:

Be'er Mayim Chaim (Chelek Chamishi [Devarim]) - 1820
Beis Ephraim - 1833
Chidushei Galanti - 1836
Chidushei Haran - 1836
Chidushei HaRashba - 1835
Ha'Agur - 1834
Haflaah - 1833
Ikarei Dinim - 1835
Kinnos L'Tisha B'Av - 1824
Kitzur Shnei Luchos HaBris - 1831
Kuzari - 1833
Maaneh Lashon - 1824
Masas Binyamin - 1833
Meir Einei Chachomim - 1834
Mikdash Melech - 1821
Netivos HaMishpat - 1830
Orchos Tzaddikim - 1835
Pnei Yehoshua (Chelek Shlishi v'Revi'i) - 1834
Pri Megadim - 1819
Sheulos U'Teshuvos Betzalel Ashkenazi - 1833
Sheulos U'Teshuvos Givat Shaul - 1834
Sheulos U'Teshuvos Maharam Alshich - 1834
Sheulos U'Teshuvos Radbaz - 1836
Sheulos U'Teshuvos Radbaz (Chelek Rishon) - 1836
Shita Mekubetzes - 1836
Shulchan Aruch - Chukei Daas - 1835
Simchas HaRegel - 1836
Trumat HaDeshen - 1835

(Note: red text = new additions)

Based upon the list of seforim printed in Sudilkov, I would be extremely interested in acquiring the following volumes in the future:

Arvei Nachal
Birkas Hamazon
Chayei Adam
Chovos Halevavos
Gemara (any volume)
Haggada shel Pesach
Kav HaYashar
Megillas Esther
Me'or Einayim
Midrash Socher Tov
Midrash Rabbah
Noda Be'Yehuda
Reishis Chochma
Sefer Chassidim
Sha'arei Tzion
Sha'ar HaTefilla
Shevet Mussar
Shulchan Aruch HaRav
Sidduro shel Shabbos
Tana D'vei Eliyahu
Tikkun Leil Shavous

Finally, aside from my dream of some time acquiring the first printing of Degel Machaneh Ephraim (Koretz, 1810), I continue looking for these printings to complete my collection of Degel Machaneh Ephraim printings:

1850 - Zhitomir
1912 - Lodz

I see that one of your new purchases takes you back to 1820. Do you know what year the press in Sudilkov first began printing?

What an amazing collection. How are the stored?

Oops, sorry, I found the answer in the PDF file of the collection. The first publication was in 1799.

nice collection. where do you find these and how much would an average volume cost to acquire?

Neil: I have them stored in the closed cabinets on my book shelf.

Natan: Through people who sell antique seforim. I guess an "average" Sudilkov sefer would cost around $100, however there are some volumes that I have spent more for.

Hmm, this should cost a huge fortune. Early Koretz prints might have 3 leading zeros in the price, or may be more.

I meant following zeros :)
