A copy of Shmuel Atlas' 1940 book on Maimonides salvaged from fire

Facing the title page of a copy of  A Section from the Yad Ha-Hazakah of Maimonides printed from a Holograph Manuscript in the Bodleian Library, printed in London in 1940, was placed a label stating : "This is one of the copies salvaged from the debris and rebound, after a fire caused by bombing of London on the 10th October, 1940, had destroyed almost the entire edition.""
