In each volume there is bumping to the corners, Wear to the top and bottom of the spines, and some chipping to the spine. Text is unmarked by underlining or notations. Verso of the title page:"Of this volume two thousand one hundred copies have been printed: the large paper edition in royal quarto. One hundred copies, numbered A.1 to A.100 ... The small paper edition in demy quarto. Two thousand copies, numbered B.1 to B.2,000." This copy is not numbered. A Term Catalogue, German Messkatalog, is a serial publication compiled to inform customers--most importantly book traders from other cities--of the book production as available on the book fairs. The first such catalogue was issued by Georg Willer in Augsburg in 1564. Several projects followed the model including the series of English Term Catalogues issued by John Starkey and Robert Clavell under the title Mercurius Librarius, or, a catalogue of books from 1668 to 1711. "Term" referred to the dates of the fairs that would be held as platforms of the trade.The project of an independent conclusive English catalogue began in 1668 with Starkey's catalogues soon co-edited and then taken over by Robert Clavell. Clavell died on 8 August 1711. His death seems to have terminated the series. The publication had already become unstable in 1708 and 1709. A new catalogue appeared in 1711 under Clavell's mentorship after a gap of more than a year but it remained without a successor.[Wikipedia] This is a very large and heavy 3 volume set.

Nyu York Hotsa'at Yerushalayim 'a. y. Shemu'el Vaksman 1944 Reprint Hard Cover Very Good No Jacket 25 cm tall 
Text in Hebrew. xxxii, 678 p. Reprint of: Vilna: bi-defus ha-Almanah veha-ahim Rom, 1880. Title on added title page: Ozar ha-sepharim: thesaurus librorum Hebraicorum = Ozar ha-sepharim (Bucherschatz) bibliographie der gesammten Hebraeischen Literatur (bis 1863). Additional title page in Russian. Some spots of soiling to the front cover. Isaac ben Jacob Benjacob (1801 - 1863) was a Jewish, Russian-born Maskil, best known as a bibliographer, author, and publisher. Benjacob corresponded with Jewish scholars in Western countries, and was known during his lifetime for his great achievements as a bibliographer, although his monumental work, the Otzar ha-Sefarim, Thesaurus Librorum Hebræorum tam Impressorum quam Manuscriptorum, did not appear till seventeen years after his death (Vilnius, 1880). It was published by his son Jacob, and contains 17,000 entries of Hebrew printed and manuscript works, with valuable notes by M. Steinschneider. An author-index to the work together with additions has been promised (as of 1906) by Steinschneider (Hebr. Bibl. xx. 73; Festschrift, p. vii.). It is the greatest Jewish bibliographical work in the Hebrew language, and is still the standard bibliography of printed books down to 1863.[Wikipedia]

In 1931, having criticized the paper for the poor quality of its printing, he was commissioned by the newspaper to produce a new, easy-to-read typeface for the publication. Times New Roman, the typeface which Morison developed with graphic artist Victor Lardent, was first used by the newspaper in 1932 and was issued commercially by Monotype in 1933.[Wikipedia]
