Detailed Description   

Critical observations on the state of Hebrew literature and its readership in America by (1865-1929), Hebrew publisher and editor in Poland and the U.S. Schwarzberg, who was born in Lipno, Poland, published Hebrew books at the close of the 19th century in Warsaw, among them I. L. Peretz' Hebrew poems, Ha-Ugav (1894). Arriving in the United States in 1897, he became editor of the Hebrew monthly Ner ha-Ma'aravi which appeared from 1895 to 1897. In 1898 he published a 33-page pamphlet Tikkatev Zot le-Dor Aharon ("This Shall be Written for the Final Generation"), a scathing attack on the attitude of the Jews toward the new Hebrew literature. He fought Yiddishism and its standard-bearer Chaim Zhitlowsky. He also published a bibliography of the works of Senior Sachs.
