Solomon Simon Bibliography in Progress

Since I admitted in my last post that I am never going to identify and gather everything my grandfather ever wrote, there’s no longer any reason not to share this information that I have been gathering over the past year.

Here are all of Solomon Simon’s published non-fiction writings I’ve been able to identify and locate so far, outside of his twenty published books. [Those marked with * I know where they are but do not yet have a copy]. There is no better way I know of to give an indication of the range of his interests and the scale of his output.

This is work in progress. I know of several more articles that I have not yet been able to obtain. My intent, following  a little more research, is to leave out book chapters reprinted in a newspaper or journal once the book was written, but to keep those articles that were raw material for later books. I have also left out the series of pamphlets published for school children that are simply illustrated chapters of his Kinder Yorn fun Yidishe Shraybers.

Finally, I have not yet included his stories. Many of these were published first in Kinder Zhurnal. I have only begun to look at that material.

Leyvik’s Golem (1927). Pamphlet. Farlag Yidish Lebn.
