Mendele Personal Notices & Announcements

Nov. 30, 2011

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: Book by Yechezkel Kotik
I have the following book: -


NB This is how the title and author's name actually appears on this book's 
spine.  But after a brief Google search, I now know that the book's title 
can also be spelled as "Mayne Zichroynes by Yechezkel Kotik."   It is 
written completely in Yiddish and contains both volumes of Kotik's memoirs 
in the same volume. It is a fat book - Vol 1 has 350 pages and Vol 2 has 
270 pages.   It was published in 1922 by Klal-Verlag Berlin SW 68 / 
Markgrafen-Strasse 73 and the book is in good condition.   I have also 
found some information on the book on the Tel Aviv University website.
Might any of your members be interested in this book?  I can send some 
photos of the book if requested.
