About this Item

Large quarto. Red textured cloth, with gilt lettering and gilt stamped illustration on front covers and spines. Red top edges. Fascinating work having the distinction of being the first comprehensive (not exclusively on Jewish topics) encyclopedia in the Hebrew language. Eisenstein undertook this work in response to perceived limitations of the English-language Jewish Encyclopedia (Levy 2002.) This encyclopedia is profusely illustrated with numerous b/w illustrations and photographic reproductions. Text in Hebrew. Bindings with light smudges and scratching to some covers. Light rubbing and bumping to some corners and head & tails of spines. Library stamp along top edges of volumes. Library stickers present on spines. Interior front covers with library stickers at top. Bindings in good+ to very good, interiors in overall very good+ to near fine condition. Julius (Judah David) Eisenstein was a late 19th and early 20th century Polish-American Jewish scholar. He established America's first society for the Hebrew language, the Shocharei Sfat Ever (Merchants of the Hebrew Language) and was also the first to translate into Hebrew and Yiddish the Constitution of the United States. He is best known for his series of Ozar anthologies on various topics relating to the Bible, Talmud and Jewish history. In addition to this, he authored over 150 articles for the Jewish encyclopedia.
