The pogroms in Russia following the assassination of Alexander II led many Jewish scholars in Europe to examine closely the history and culture of their people. In England, journalist and historian Lucien Wolf (1857–1930) and writer and folklorist Joseph Jacobs (1854–1916) were among those to write articles on the situation in Russia, and also on the wider history of European Judaism. In particular, they were both interested in the chequered history of the Jews in England, and following the successful Anglo-Jewish Historical Exhibition of 1887 (whose catalogue is also reissued in this series) they jointly compiled this important bibliography. Published in 1888, it was an attempt to list for the first time published works concerned with Judaism in England. Also including entries on manuscripts dating back to the reign of Henry III, this remains an essential resource for students of Anglo-Jewish history.
