This page lists answers to some common questions about our reprints program. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.
A title usually corresponds to the original scan obtained from HebrewBooks.org or another digital archive. A title usually produces one or more editions - which correspond to a new physical book - for example an edition maybe merely a reproduction of a single title, or a combined edition made up of several titles together. Each edition has one or more reprints, which correspond to various bindings/print partner combinations of the same physical book.
A pre-order request is placed by customers to select specific titles to be reprinted. There is no cost to pre-order reprints and no obligation to purchase anything once they are fulfilled and reprints become available for ordering.
We are all separate organizations. The Society for Preservation of Hebrew Books which operates the HebrewBooks.org site scans and digitizes old books, making them available for free download. PublishYourSefer.com, is responsible for taking scanned books and setting them up for printing. Lulu, Amazon.com, and our other print on demand partners handle orders and printing for reprints.
Please direct this question to HebrewBooks.org. We only handle printing of books once they have been scanned.
We only print titles that are in public domain under United States law. Permission from the current copyright holder will be required to print any titles that are still under copyright.
The most common reason why a title is not available, is simply because it hasn't been setup for printing yet. Please contact us about a specific title.
For most titles, about 1-2 weeks. Some titles may take longer.
Soft covers orders take about a week. Hardcover orders take between 1 to 3 weeks for printing.
A small hardcover is 6"x9" and a large hardcover is 8.25"x10.75". When a book is setup for printing, one of these sizes is chosen based on the size of the original scan. Prior to setup, both prices might be shown.
