Alfred Rubens, English collector and author. A London surveyor and estate agent by profession, he began early in life to collect engravings of Jewish interest and his Anglo-Jewish Portraits (1935) was based on his collections. This was followed by a similar work of wider scope, A Jewish Iconography (1954; rev. ed. 1981) extending to engravings of scenes of Jewish life and to continental engraved portraits. A logical outcome was his History of Jewish Costume (1967). Rubens was chairman of the London Jewish Museum for many years, and was president of the Jewish Historical Society of England (1956–58).
