In addition to standard works, the collection includes many rare books, most of which have been preserved in vintage condition by beautiful hand-made jackets fashioned by Fishstein. The collection also includes albums of early twentieth-century post cards and trade union memorabilia. The catalogue includes a preface by Ruth R. Wisse, who was instrumental in acquiring the collection for McGill, a comprehensive introduction, and extensive indices. A table of name equivalents links a name in its original Hebrew alphabet form to the Roman alphabet version used in the entries and indices. The illustrator index contains more than 400 artists, including Marc Chagall and El Lissitsky.
