From AJL’s press release / Uit het persbericht van de Association of Jewish Libraries:

Our Bibliography Award Winner, Fables in Jewish Culture: The Jon A. Lindseth Collection,
represents traditional bibliography at its highest level. The editors, Emile Schrijver and Lies
Meiboom, began with the arduous task of first convincing the skeptical reader that the Fable as
a genre has a long history within Jewish culture, a task they accomplished with aplomb. The
committee was equally impressed with the critical apparatus of scholarly texts, detailed
descriptions composed for each item in the collection, and the beauty of the book itself. The
committee, of course, also wants to acknowledge the work of Jon Lindseth in building this
collection and assembling such a diverse library of texts on the fable. It is an incredible
accomplishment—and a treasure for the Cornell University Library.
