Jewish printed books
  Translat Ampliatzien...., Amsterdam, 1772

© Gross Family Collection, Photographer: Unknown,

This text was prepared by William Gross:

All Jewish formal insitutions needed bylaws in order to function in an orderly manner. This is a list of rules for the administration of the Ashkenazi Synagogue in Amsterdam. Additions to the bylaws were also printed at various times. See another set of bylaws from the year 1737. This is bound with 11 other publications of the same type in a special "Parnas" binding.
Kosman ben Joseph Baruch was an Amsterdam printer and bookseller. From 1742-1766 he printed in cooperation with his father-law Naftali Hertz Levi Rofe. This partnership eventually ended, but Kosman continued printing with his sons instead until 1781. His name alone appears on the current volume, followed by the title “Bookseller”.
