Welcome to the Online Exhibition

The online exhibition shows highlights of the Western Hebrew Library, a collection of over 1300 items dated from 15th to 20th century, deposited on loan with the Leopold Muller Memorial Library in 2013. The exhibition allows the viewers to peer through a window into the "world of printed words" of Samuel Montagu and his contemporaries.
