About this Item

New York: Alfred A. Knopf. 1937. F First Edition. H Hardcover. Very Good-. Presentation copy, signed and inscribed on front endpaper by H. L. Mencken to a prominent Baltimore Rabbi: "Morris S. Lazarus With best regards H.L. Mencken 1937". In addition to the presentation inscription, there is also a holograph correction in black ink to the error on the title page, which appears to be in Mencken's hand ("translated from the German" with the last line lined out reading "Latin"). This error was corrected by a hand- stamp in later issue copies. H. L. Mencken's views on Jews are a complex mix which has been the topic of extensive commentary (ranging from vitriolic comments in "Treatise on the Gods" to activism on behalf of European Jews during the Hitler era. Morris S. Lazarus, was Rabbi of the Baltimore Hebrew Congregation. One of only 1475 copies - remarkably scarce. Original reddish-brown cloth, paper spine label (label darkened with some wear; minor darkening and wear to cloth). Signed: I Signed By Editor. Bookseller Inventory # 00508053
