About this Item

Napoleon I* is justly regarded as one of the chief forerunners of Jewish emancipation. By introducing the equality of the French Revolution, granting citizenships to Jews, and destroying the old feudal system, he effected more for Jewish emancipation than had been accomplished during the preceding centuries. The seven volumes of this remarkable collection of the "Bulletin des Lois de l'Empire Français" contain the complete set of decrees implemented by the French Emperor regarding Jews during his reign: - 1 )Bulletin des Lois de l'Empire Français: 4eme Série, Tome Quatrième, Contenant les Lois rendues depuis le 1er Vendémiaire an XIV jusqu'au dernier jour du mois de Mai 1806. No. 59 à 95. Quarto. XXXII, 607, [1], 28pp. Uncut. Contemporary orange wrappers, with handwritten title laid on spine. This bound volume contains the complete run of the official Bulletin of the Laws of the French Empire, from issue No. 59 to issue No. 95 (September 23, 1805 to May 30, 1806). In pages 582-584 of issue No. 94 features the Imperial decree No. 1631 in which Napoleon suspends payment of debts owed to Jewish moneylenders for one year to warn against usury and calls a conference with Jewish leaders (The Great Sanhedrin which will meet in 1807.)
