Description:

Inscribed in pencil on front cover: "With sincere regards from L.R.B. 26 IX. 05." S stamp at top of title page implies this to be a copy of "Hermann Gollancz." He was the first Jew to receive a doctor of literature degree from London University as well as the first Rabbi to be granted knighthood in 1923. Octavo. 23pp. Original brown printed wraps with black ruling and lettering. Translated from the original Hebrew of Achad-Haam. Silver gelatin portrait of Lilian Ruth Bentwich mounted to verso of title page. The selected essays are reprints of translations of Achad-Haam writings (Asher Zvi Hirsch Ginsberg, 1856-1927) which have recently appeared in the Jewish Chronicle. "They represent merely a fraction of an entire series which, in their complete form, cover the whole underlying philosophy in Zionism" (Bentwich). Achad-Haam was a pre-state Zionist thinker who is know as the founder of cultural Zionism, proposing the creation of a Jewish state with its own secular Jewish culture. Wraps with light wear along edges, creasing and lightly wavy due to water exposure. Title page and some other pages with small chips from paper clip, minor foxing here and on last page. Portrait photograph somewhat faded. Block wavy and some stains at foredge due to water exposure, some creasing at lower right corner. Wraps and interior in overall fair to good- condition.
