’Jewish books through time and place’: Fabrizio Quaglia’s research on printed books of the Kaufmann Collection

Fabrizio Quaglia, a book historian and expert in Judaica and Hebraica, has been working on the Kaufmann Collection for some years.

Currently, as part of a research project (2022–2024), he is creating a detailed bibliographical description of 15th–18th century printed books of that collection.

As a result of his research, not only the smallest individual details of each print, such as marginalia, seals, censorial notes, etc., are described, but he also delves into the books' places of origin. In the recently launched series ’Footprints: Jewish Books Through Time and Place’ he introduces the book collectors whose libraries David Kaufmann purchased. The first part deals with the history of Mantuan collections preserved in the LHAS. In the second part, the author presents collectors from the province of Emilia. The third part, "Piedmontese detour" provides an insight into his research on book owners.
