About this Item

(FT) Hardcover, 28 pages, 12mo, 22 cm. In Hebrew. Meyer Sulzberger’s copy with book plate and with marginalia which may be his as well. SUBJECT(S) : Weiss, Isaac Hirsch, 1815-1905. Zikhronotai. Weiss, Isaac Hirsch, 1815-1905. Rapoport, Solomon Judah Leib, 1790-1867. Includes bibliographical references. Epstein (1841–1918) , was a "rabbinic scholar and historian. Epstein was born in Staro-Konstantinov, Russia, to a wealthy family. In 1861 he traveled to Western Europe, where he met some of the leading figures in Jewish scholarship (S. J. L. Rapoport, Z. Frankel, and M. Sachs) who greatly stimulated his interest in Jewish studies. Gradually, he liquidated his shares in the family business and devoted himself to research. In 1876 he settled in Vienna, where he pursued his studies and contributed articles to learned Hebrew periodicals. In the controversy between Rapoport and I. Weiss, Epstein defended the former in Divrei Bikkoret (1896) . Epstein's works manifest his vast knowledge and painstaking research: he combined the best of Eastern scholarship with Western method and is recognized as an outstanding scholar in his fields. A collection of some of his writings appeared under the title Mi-Kadmoniyyot ha-Yehudim (1887) , of which the second volume of Kitvei R. Avraham Epstein, edited by A. M. Habermann, is an enlarged version. An autobiographical sketch was published in N. Sokolow, Sefer Zikkaron le-Sifrei Yisrael, and is reproduced in Kitvei R. Avraham Epstein. Epstein willed his large and valuable library to the Vienna Jewish Theological Seminary" (Avneri in EJ 2007) . OCLC lists 9 copies worldwide. Ex-library with usual markings. Wear to binding. Bumped corners and edges. Tipped in front blank pages. Good condition. (Rab-48-1) Spec5, rab8. Bookseller Inventory # 26969
