Description
   Only edition of this exceedingly rare bibliographic listing of his Torah works by R. Moses Judah Davidowitz. Although there is a copy in the JNUL in Jerusalem a search of major Judaica libraries did not find any holdings of Ozar Yehudah, nor is it recorded in major bibliographic works. The title page describes it as including a complete detailed listing of the Torah works by the sages of Israel collected throughout his life. The text enumerates 1, 870 titles, also providing the subject matter, author, place of publication, and year of publication. Titles are in square letters, descriptive information is in rabbinic letters.
