Mendele Personal Notices & Announcements

Sept. 10, 2010

To minimize wear and tear on the untershames, three requests:

1. Send time-sensitive notices well in advance.
2. Send material as plain text:  no HTML, other coding, or attachments;and 
write MENDELE PERSONALS in the subject line.
3. Correspond directly with the person who or organization which has 
posted the notice, *not* with your ever-beleaguered untershames.

Subject: permission to reprint - query

I am publishing an anthology of Litvak texts and need to secure 
permissions to reprint numerous texts. Any information about the holders 
of copyright for the following texts would be much appreciated. I realize 
that many of the texts listed predate the copyright limit of 1943, but 
some may have special arrangements; I would be grateful for any aid.
