About this Item

Ex-library. 12mo. 244 leaves. 151 leaves. Modern brown library binding. Date of publication is mistakenly listed as 1781 on the spine. Tailpieces. Menahem Mann b. Solomon Ha-Levi Amelander's Yiddish translation and expansion of Josipon, a 10th century pseudonymous work in Hebrew attributed to the first century Jewish historian Josephus. Amelander continued the work to include legends and events that occurred after the destruction of the Second Temple. Of particular interest is his account of the founding of the Amsterdam Jewish community. Contains numerous magnificent woodcuts depicting monarchs and important historical events such as battles. Most of these depict the figures using and wearing early modern clothing and weapons. This work was first published in Amsterdam in 1744 and republished in Fürth in 1767. The 1771 Amsterdam edition contains the Sheerit Yisrael section which continues the narrative until the year 1770. Amelander died around 1767 so this part must have been the work of someone else. Text in Judeo-German. Leaf 59 of the first section is missing. Title page and first leaf of second section mounted. Final leaves cut to fit binding. Card pocket and due-date slip on front endpapers. Some foxing and staining to leaves. Overall in good condition. Bookseller Inventory # 36396
