Salomo A. Birnbaum (1891 - 989) is the uncontested pioneer in two large closely related research areas, namely historical Jewish linguistics and the palaeography of Hebrew and all Jewish successor languages. This collection of essays provides a cross-section through Birnbaum's life's work. Volume II documents the development of Hebrew palaeography, which began to be established in the period between the 1930s and 1960s.
