An album with a simple paper cover, with eight pages on each of which had a silver print attached from a black and white photograph. Before each page, protective paper is added. All pages were bound by green wire. The album's cover reads: "Association for The Hebrew Reign / The Language Shields Battalion, Tel Aviv / Cultural Enterprises inaugurated by 1933 / Sponsored by the Municipality of Tel Aviv and N. Bialik / Hebrew Exhibition". These photographs show the exhibition rooms displayed in the "Herzliya" gymnasium building, Tel Aviv, during Hanukkah 1932 (December 25-31, 1932). The exhibition was organized by the Hebrew Language Control Association and the "Language Defenders Battalion" on the 10th anniversary of eliezer Ben Yehuda's death and "Fifty years since the resurrection of Hebrew as a national language". This exhibition was part of various cultural events held that week, all over the country. The photographs mainly show various publications presented in the exhibition by various Hebrew book publishers. One of the photographs shows the director of the Herzliya Gymnasium, Dr. Yehuda Leib Mattman-Cohen. The photographs did not name the photographer. This album was recorded in the Collections of the National Library in 1938, but it is assumed that it was donated to the Library even earlier, near its production.
