The author (née Paula Jonas) , was the lexicographer Eliezer Ben Yehudah’s 2nd wife, marrying him shortly after the death of her sister, his first wife Devora (née Jonas) . "Adopting the Hebrew name Hemdah, she learned Hebrew fluently in record time, became a reporter for his paper [‘Hatzvi’ -- The Deer -- a weekly newspaper], and in time took over as editor, in order to allow Eliezer to concentrate on his research of the lost Hebrew words that the reborn tongue required . ’Hatzvi’ was the first Hebrew paper to report what was happening throughout the land. For this paper Eliezer needed to coin new Hebrew words for objects and verbs that did not exist in the days of the last Hebrew commonwealth" (Junior Judaica, Encyclopedia Judaica for Youth, 1992) . OCLC lists 5 copies worldwide (Harvard, Princeton, NYPL, Stanford, UC-Berkeley) . Slight browning and wear to edges of pages. Otherwise, very good condition. (Rab-40-27) MX3, heblit2 HEB2.
