The Israel Solomons Collection at the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York City is home to one of the great collections of rare Anglo-Jewish pamphlets. With the reproduction of this historic compilation, historians of a variety of disciplines can now have a convenient, comprehensive tool for studying the Jewish experience in England from the late 16th to the late 19th centuries. All the major issues affecting Jews in England are documented in this collection of ephemera: from Menasseh ben Israel's appeal to Cromwell in the 1650s to allow Jews to re-enter the country, through the uproar over the naturalization bill of 1753, to the admission of Lionel de Rothschild to Parliament in 1858. Students of literature and the theater will find poems, plays, and librettos by and about English Jews. Moses Mendez is represented by five librettos, and there are contributions from some non- Jewish authors. Legal briefs and case histories are well represented, as are the texts of relevant laws and commentaries. Most of the collection's 442 pamphlets are in English, with a scattering of Hebrew, German, Dutch, Spanish, and Portuguese.
