Sources, Editorial Notes, and Acknowledgements

Almost all the information in this online bibliography comes from the booklet A Bibliography of the Writings of Louis Finkelstein, covering the years up to 1974, compiled by Prof. Burton Visotzky, New York: JTSA, 1977; and its continuation Supplement to the Bibliography of the Writings of Louis Finkelstein, covering the years 1975-1985, compiled by Ora Hamelsdorf, New York: JTSA 1985. Specifically, all but eight of the entries here up to the year 1974 come from Visotzky; and all of the entries here in the years 1975-1985 come from Hamelsdorf. I am grateful to Prof. Visotzky for his permission to republish his work in this format.

Thus, the primary purpose of this bibliography here is to make the information in these earlier two collections more accessible to scholars. WorldCat lists only 31 libraries that hold the Visotzky bibliography, and only 2 that hold the Hamelsdorf supplement. I have also added a few additional items; added information about the items in Visotzky and Hamelsdorf, gathered mostly from JSTOR and WorldCat; added hyperlinks, particularly to articles available on JSTOR; and corrected a very small number of errors (no doubt introducing more than I corrected). I have included links to WorldCat listings for a small number of items that I thought might be hard to find using simple search.

My organizational system differs in two respects from that used by Visotzky and by Hamelsdorf. First, in the case of books published in multiple printings or editions, or articles that appeared in multiple collections, Visotzky and Hamelsdorf listed each reprinting as a separate item, linked by cross-references. I have listed all reprintings together as a single item, under the first appearance. Also, I have in some cases omitted multiple printings of books of collections that include an article. Therefore, the numberings here do not exactly correspond to those in Visotzky and in Hamelsdorf.

Most of the cross-references in Visotzky are of this kind, between items of the identical or nearly identical title, which are clearly reprintings of the same article. However, some of the cross-references are between items of significantly different titles. Since I cannot be sure that these are in fact the same item, I have left them as separate listings, and noted Visotzky's cross-reference.

Second, many of the journal articles were issued immediately as ``reprints'' or small pamphlets by the publisher of the journal. Visotzky notes these as ``Also reprint.'' I have omitted these, as they do not seem significantly different from the article. (For instance, Visotzky notes this for the 3 page article, ``Reflections on Judaism, Zionism, and Enduring Peace", 1943; I presume this is 2 or 3 stapled sheets plus cardboard front and back.) However, indexes such as WorldCat sometimes list these as ``books''.

I am very grateful to Jinyang Li for her help identifying the Chinese translation of ``The Jews: Their History, Culture, and Religion;" and to my sister Abby and brother Joey for their encouragement and their help locating information about some of the more obscure references.
