Joseph Friedlander, comp. The Standard Book of Jewish Verse. 1917.
MY indebtedness extends to a long range of sources and authorities, which are in the main responsible for any merit this book may possess. To the following publishers, periodicals and newspapers, my acknowledgments are preeminently due:
I am also indebted to a number of periodicals and newspapers for poemsnotably The Jewish Quarterly Review, The Menorah Monthly (formerly the official organ of the Bnai Berith), The Jewish Hope, The Jewish Messenger, and various scattered, short-lived, fugitive periodicals.
Various other Anthologies have also greatly helped me in my workmore particularly the excellent and exhaustive Hebrew Anthology of my friend, Dr. George Alexander Kohut, who has also permitted the use of a number of poems from his own pen, printed in an edition only privately circulated.
[Owing to the untimely death of the compiler, it has not been possible to ascertain whether the above list of Acknowledgments is complete. As Dr. Friedlander was most scrupulous in his relations with others, it is safe to assume that he has not failed to record his indebtedness, so far as it lay in his power.]
