Blau Collection

A collection of 193 Hebrew books which formed part of the library of Professor Ludwig Blau (1861-1936), director of the Jewish Theological Seminary of Budapest.

Comprised mainly of Talmud and Biblical commentary, Italian imprints predominate the collection, while over half the volumes date from the 16th century.

The collection was purchased by the University of Glasgow in 1937.
