1  Introduction

This is an eclectical list of catalogues of libraries and private collections housing Hebrew and Aramaic manuscripts, as found in library collections. It goes without saying that the primus inter pares of catalogues is the card catalogue at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.1 Nonetheless, older catalogues remain valuable. The present list has made extensive use of earlier guides and compilations, mainly Pearson's Oriental Manuscripts and Gabrieli's Manoscritti e carte orientali , and it should be updated in view of Richler's Guide to Hebrew Manuscript Collections as it was compiled in 1992. However, it is only intended as a source of information to be used alongside Richler's invaluable guide. This list is not intended for publication. Thanks are due to prof. dr. W. Baars and to prof. dr. J.C. de Moor for their kind and valuable suggestions.

The entries have been distributed according to nation and location. Catalogues covering more than one library are listed separately, with references in the entry of the location. Due to the eclectic nature, as well as slow growth of this list, there are many bibliographical inconsistencies to be noted, for which I apologise.

Readers are kindly invited to send their comments on this list to

It is hoped that the list will soon be updated. For further information, see and

    (The article of E.A. Voretzsch, ``Auf dem Fernen Osten bezügliche Manuskripte in den Bibliotheken Portugals,'' Artibus Asiae 1 (1935) 40-55, does not describe Hebrew or Aramaic MSS.) The Biblioteca Nacional and the Biblioteca de Ajuda in Lisbon contain the most important collections of Hebrew MSS in Portugal. A bundle of slips called ``Orientalia'' may reveal additional MSS ``of which nothing but the bare shelf-mark and a conjecture as to the language is given'' (Pearson). According to B. Büch, Bibliotheken. Amsterdam: De Arbeiderspers, 1984, p. 79, the Convento de Mafra (previously the Royal Palace of Mafra, North of Lisbon) has an enormous collection of theological works, hardly ever consulted.

    Vol. 1-3: 1206 MSS. Vol. 4 contains additions (by J. Leveen) of 89 MSS. The Students' Room has a Hand-list of the Genizah collection (120 MSS). A great part of the private collection of Dr. Moses Gaster has been purchased in 1925; a hand-written list exists in the Students' Room. The remaining part of this collection has been acquired by the John Rylands Library in Manchester. Furthermore 43 Hebrew and 1 Aramaic MSS have been acquired since the publication of Volume 4. The Samaritan MSS have not been described.
    The best method to find what has not been classified in Margoliouth's catalogue is to take the classed inventory (Oriental Reading-Room). Look for the material which has appeared after Margoliouth. Then look for the numbers of those MSS in the List of Oriental MSS (several volumes).
