From Preface:

"The articles published in the present volume are the fruit of some four decades of my interest in two areas of learning: medieval Hebrew poetry
and Jewish bibliography and booklore. They appear here, with the exception of minor editorial changes and of a few essential bibliographical
additions, in their original version.

As a graduate student in the early 1960's, I wrote a dissertation on the poetic work of the great Spanish rabbi, Isaac ibn Giat, who lived in Lucena, Spain in the eleventh century. His liturgical poetry exercised a great influence on future generations of Spanish Hebrew poets, chief among them Moses ibn Ezra. My original plan was to prepare a critical edition of all of his poems, but unfortunately, for various reasons, I was unable to realize my plan. Still, I published a few articles about ibn Giat, which also included some unpublished poems by him. From the mid-1960's until the mid-1980's, my main energies were directed to my position as librarian of the Seminary. During those years I was also active in the professional organization of Judaica librarians in the United States: I delivered some lectures and wrote some articles relating to the history of the Seminary Library and on various themes in Jewish bibliography. A few studies on specific Hebrew manuscripts and rare books were also the result of my good fortune of having had access to the treasures of the Seminary Library, and, of course, also to the holdings of other institutions.

Later, beginning with the 1990's, my interest turned to medieval Hebrew poetry in Ashkenaz. I was fascinated to realize that medieval Ashkenazi rabbis were also prolific in composing occasional poems, many of them on weddings. This somehow stood in contrast with the stereotypical impression of them being the authors of exclusively lachrymose poems on tragic events. A few of my later articles deal with Ashkenazi Piyyutim. Finally, I published a few biographical appreciations. These are devoted to the much admired great scholars and leaders at the Seminary, Alexander Marx and Louis Finkelstein, and to my teacher Alexander Scheiber of Budapest, who inspired me to embark on a career in Jewish Studies.

The articles gathered in this volume reflect on these interests and topics."
