This shelf lot includes the very large group of books on world Jewish history shown in the corresponding image. Due to the high volume of books we are selling at this auction, we will be offering a number of bulk buy opportunities such as this one during the course of the day. To inspect and acquire more detailed information about this lot, please attend our live preview before the auction. As with all the books in our shelf lots, these are generally in good condition with some age/wear indications; older books are more likely to have advanced flaws. Shipping cost (within the U.S.) for this lot will be: $30.50. This lot is part of a large collection of books and ephemera that we will be selling over the coming months, from the estate of Lewis E. Shuman, long-time collector from Rochester, New York.
