"The First Hebrew City" Early Tel Aviv through the Eyes of the Eliasaf Robinson Collection


At the end of 2005, the Stanford University Libraries acquired a rich collection of books, pamphlets, magazines, printed ephemera, posters, postcards, photographs, maps, architectural plans, and original documents about the early history of "The First Hebrew City." The collection was assembled over a span of forty years by Eliasaf Robinson, a Tel Aviv native and Israel's most prominent antiquarian bookseller. The Eliasaf Robinson Collection on Tel Aviv - as it is now known - comprises approximately five hundred printed volumes (books and periodicals) and twenty linear feet of archival materials. It is among the most sought-after resources in the Stanford University Libraries.

The Eliasaf Robinson Collection on Tel Aviv online exhibit is currently under construction.

The collection's physical materials are housed in the Stanford Libraries Department of Special Collections.
