Description:

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.
