Henry Hollander’s Books

I’m in San Francisco for the weekend, and I had the opportunity to visit Henry Hollander’s Bookstore. The store is actually in the basement of his house, and i was there for like 45 minutes by myself while he went to the warehouse. He’s an awesome guy, incredibly knowledgeable and very friendly. With an awesome hat, too.

I came away from it with four new books: The Land Of Sheba: Tales of the Jews of Yemen, Ahavat Teiman- Yemenite Jewish women’s poetry, in Hebrew and Judeo-Arabic, Al-Murshad al-Kafi, in Hebrew and Judeo-Arabic, and lastly The Arabic Commentary of Salmon Ben Yeruham the Karaite on The Book of Psalms Chapters 42-72, in Hebrew and Judeo-Arabic. These are going to be my projects for the next year.
