Martin Philippson (1846-1916) was "a historian and a communal leader. Born at Magdeburg, Philippson was appointed assistant professor at Bonn in 1875, and soon thereafter was designated professor of modern history. However, when Emperor William I would not sanction the appointment of a Jew, Martin took a professorship at the University of Brussels (1878) , and eventually became rector there. In 1891 he was forced to resign this post in the face of agitation by anti-German and radical students, and returned to Berlin. Thereafter he devoted his energies to Jewish communal affairs and to his writing. He was chairman of the Deutsch-Israelitischer Gemeindebund (1896-1912) , chairman of the Gesellschaft zur Foerderung der Wissenschaft des Judentums (1902) ; and chairman of the Verband der deutschen Juden (1904) . He also headed the Lehranstalt fuer die Wissenschaft des Judentums, which commissioned his three-volume Neueste Geschichte des juedischen Volkes. " (Herbert A. Strauss, EJ) SUBJECT(S) : Jews -- History. Max O. Klein's copy, with his bookplate. Cover and last two leaves detached; interior of book in very good condition. (GR-3-3).
