Complete 1903 volume of the "The Maccabean, " the major American Zionist publication of the Federation of American Zionists. The Federation "was one of the first official Zionist organizations in the United States, and, especially early in the 20th century, the primary representative of American Jews to the World Zionist Organization, espousing primarily Political Zionism. " This volume contains 1st printing articles, poems, and reflections by many many prominent Zionists including Theodor Herzl, Henrietta Szold, Louis Lipsky, Max Heller, and others. Perhaps most notably, the volume contains a 40-page special report from the 6th Zionist Congress which includes what is probably the 1st American Printing of Herzlís famous speech in which he introduced the Uganda Plan. Herzl says, "The new territory has not the historical, religious and Zionistic value which the Sinai Peninsula would have possessed, but I do not doubt that the Congress, as representing the Jewish masses, will receive the new offer with the warmest gratitude. The proposal consists of an autonomous Jewish settlement in East Africa with Jewish administration, Jewish local government, with a Jewish Governor at its head, all of course under British suzerain control. " The report also includes updates from other notable conference speakers including Max Nordau and Israel Zangwill. OCLC lists 16 holdings worldwide. Rebacked. Water damage throughout.
