Mocatta Pamphlet Collection

The Mocatta Pamphlet collection comprises some extremely rare titles and covers a wide range of subjects including rabbinica, Zionism, and the State of Israel. A complementary collection of microfiche produced by the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, containing copies of over 440 rare pamphlets from the late 16th to the late 19th centuries are also held in Special Collections.

The oldest Jewish periodical in England still in circulation, the Jewish Chronicle was launched in 1841. It remains to this day the most influential periodical in the Anglo-Jewish community, and a valuable research tool. UCL Library holds an almost complete set of the publication from 1844, the only publicly accessible set in the Greater London area.
