Uncovering UCL’s Jewish Pamphlet Collections: an update

By Vanessa Freedman, on 29 April 2015

The first phase of the project to catalogue the Jewish pamphlets at UCL Special Collections is now nearing completion, with over 3,000 pamphlets catalogued. There are now detailed records in Explore for each pamphlet, making this rich collection available for use by scholars and the general public.

The pamphlets catalogued so far date from the 17th century onwards, the greater part from the 19th century, approximately 150 from the 18th century, a handful from the 17th century, and the rest from the 20th century.

Advocacy of Jewish freedom

‘The Author listening to the speech of Baron Lionel de Rothschild …’. Frontispiece of Advocacy of Jewish freedom / by “William Thornborrow”. London, 1848. From the collection of the Guildhall Library. Ref: SR MOCATTA PAMPHLETS BOX 9

The pamphlets come from the collections of various individuals and organisations including philanthropist, historian and bibliophile Frederic David Mocatta (1828-1905); Canadian rabbi Aaron David Meldola de Sola (1853-1918); Asher Myers, editor of the Jewish Chronicle (1848-1902); historian Albert Montefiore Hyamson (1875-1954); scholar and founder of British Liberal Judaism Claude Goldsmid Montefiore (1858-1938); the Guildhall Library; the Jewish Museum of London; Jews’ College Library; and the Offenbach am Main Archival Depot (located in the American Sector of postwar Germany, its objective was to collect books, manuscripts and archival materials taken by the Nazis and return them to their country of origin).

The pamphlets catalogued so far relate to a wide range of subjects including: the Jewish community in the United Kingdom and the colonies, its legal status, economic and social conditions and educational and religious institutions; anti-semitism; missionary activities focused on the Jews; and Zionism. There is some interesting liturgical material, such as special services marking the dedication of particular synagogues and events of major national interest, such as the safe recovery from childbirth of Queen Victoria. There are also several 18th century celebratory Hebrew poems from Italy and the Netherlands.

Esther's suit for the Jews

‘Esther’s suit for the Jews’. Frontispiece of Esther’s suit to King Ahasuerus in behalf of the Jews. In a letter to a member of Parliament. London, 1753. Ref: SR MOCATTA PAMPHLETS BOX 8

On Thursday the 14th of May, there will be an evening pop-up event at UCL to present some of the most interesting items from the collection: details to follow.

Anyone wishing to consult the collection should make an appointment with UCL Special Collections at least two weeks in advance.

Welcome back

By Vanessa Freedman, on 22 September 2014

Welcome back to all returning students. You might notice a few changes in the library:

What is happening on the first floor?

  • The rooms which previously contained the Issue Desk, print/copy/scan machines and computer cluster are currently being refurbished, to make them ready for the installation of new self-service equipment.
  • The Issue Desk is currently in the Reference Room, which is opposite the former Issue Desk room.
  • There are 4 Desktop@UCL PCs in the Reference Room, along with 4 Explore terminals.
  • There are also 3 print/copy/scan machines  in the Reference Room, with a 4th in the Art section.
  • The DVD collection is now in the Literature corridor.
  • The Audio-Visual room is currently closed. Please ask at the Issue Desk if you need to alternative facilities.
  • More information about the new self-service facilities is available.

Where have all the journals gone?

All journals dating from before 2000 (with a few exceptions) have been moved out of the library and need to be ordered in advance using our Stores service.

The remaining journals in the HEBREW section have been moved onto one set of shelves to make space for new books.

New website

We have a new website and subject guide, which should be much more informative and easy to use. Please have a look and let us know what you think.
