About this Item

(FT) Publishers cloth. 4to. [62] pages. 29 cm. In Yiddish. "Three Chassidic Stories" by Isaac Leib Peretz; illustrated in red and black ink by Moshe Feigenblum; text in calligraphic "sofer-stam" style. Bound in blue cloth with gilt lettering. The first story is "Oyb Nisht Nokh Hekher", originally published in 1900, wherein "a skeptical Litvak – a Jew from Lithuania, the center of talmudic study – becomes a disciple of an inspirational rebbe upon seeing his kindness and good deeds. " The second story is "Der Khelmer Melamed" ("The Teacher from Chelm") is "a comic folktale about trying to eradicate the evil impulse (der yetser hore) but finding that this threatens population growth. " The third story is "Mekubolim" (Kabbalist) : "some of Peretz's best stories were neo-? Asidic. The Hebrew story ‘Ha-Mekubbalim’ (‘Kabbalists, ’ 1891; Yiddish version, ‘Mekubolim, ’ 1894) is the earliest of the stories that were later included in the genre and volume called Khasidish (‘? Asidic’) . Instead of praising the rebbe in the manner of Shivehei ha-BeShT, however, ‘Ha-Mekubalim’ uses irony to show his inadequacy. " (All quotes from EJ 2008 article on I. L. Peretz) . Subjects: Hasidism - Legends. OCLC lists 14 copies worldwide. Light wear to cloth, pages browned, some wear to outer edges, otherwise clean and fresh. Good + condition. (ART-18-5).
