Included are the great classical writers; younger masters, such as Kadia Molodowsky, Mani Leib, and Yankev Glatstein; and many works published in series between the world wars by school networks and educational groups. Leib Kvitko, Dvoyre Khorol, and Khaim Mal'tinskii are represented among the Soviet imprints.
