Inv. # 070531. Six Volumes, done in 3/4 Leather over green cloth boards. T.E.G. Name of first subscriber, Abraham Baumwald gold-stamped onto front cover; bookplate of Adrian Solo, M.D. The book was originally published in 11 volumes in German from 1853 to 1870. An English edition was published in London in 1891, translated by Bella Loewy. This is that edition, published in America. This is one of the first comprehensive popular histories of the Jews written by a Jew, and the work became very popular and influential in its time. Although the book has many shortcomings, they "are outbalanced by the facts that the work of presenting the whole of Jewish history [up to 1848] was undertaken, that it was executed in a readable form, and that the author enriched Jewish history by the discovery of many an important detail." ; Small 4to 9" - 11" tall
