About this Item

Octavo. IX, [1], 441, VIII, 516pp. Original 3/4 black leather over black cloth, with gold lettering and tooling on spines. First edition of this fascinating work written by one of the most prominent Austrian poet and writer of the 19th century. In 1856, at the request of Elise von Herz-Lämel, Frankl went to Jerusalem, and with her help founded there a Jewish school and philanthropic institution. His journeys in Asia and in Greece are vividly depicted, in verse and prose, in this two-volume work, "Nach Jerusalem !" (Leipzig, 1858), which has been translated into several languages, among them Hebrew. Later he added a third volume, "Aus Aegypten" (Vienna, 1860). Age-wear on bindings with rubbing on joints, corners and along edges. Major closed tears along front joint of second volume (but cover still holding). Previous owner's ex-libris on inside of each front board, and previous owner's blind stamp on title-page of second volume. Very minor damp-staining on inner margin of very first pages of second volume. Sporadic and minor foxing on very first and very last pages of volumes. Text in German, gothic script. Binding in overall fair to good-, interior in good+ to very good condition. About the author: Ludwig August Ritter von Frankl-Hochwart (1810-1894) was an Austrian poet. He took part in the revolution of 1848, and his poems on liberty had considerable vogue. His lyrics are among his best work. He was secretary of the Jewish community in Vienna, and did a lasting service to education by his visit to the Orient in 1856. He founded the first modern Jewish school (the Von Lammel Schule) in Jerusalem. His brilliant volumes "Nach Jerusalem !" describing his eastern tour have been translated into English, as is the case with many of his poems. His collected poems appeared in three volumes in 1880.
