About this Item

Softbound. 8vo. XII, 358 [1] pages. 24 cm. First edition. In German. Includes one fold out chart. Title translates as: "Samuel Oppenheimer and his circle (a chapter in the history of finance in Austria) " printed in the series Sources and Research on the History of Jews in German-Austria under the auspices of the "Historische Kommission der Israelitischen Kultusgemeinde in Wien. " This volume, a biography on the 17th century Jewish Viennese Banker and court diplomat Samuel Oppenheimer, was the "Rappaport Foundation Prize-winning script. " Max Grunwald (1871–1953) was a rabbi, historian, and folklorist. "Born at Hindenburg (now Zabrze, Silesia) , Grunwald served as rabbi in Hamburg (1895–1903) and Vienna (1905–35) . He settled in Jerusalem in 1938. Grunwald was a many-sided and productive scholar. He wrote on the history of the communities which he served (Hamburgs deutsche Juden–1811, 1904; Portugiesengraeber auf deutscher Erde; Juden als Reeder und Seefahrer, 1902; and on Vienna: Geschichte der Juden in Wien (for schools, 1926) ; Wiener Hevra Kaddisha, 1910; Vienna, 1936 (in the Jewish Communities series of the Jewish Publication Society of America) ) . Grunwald also wrote on such famous Viennese Jews as S. Oppenheimer (Samuel Oppenheimer und sein Kreis, 1913) and S. Wertheimer and his descendants (in: Juedische Familienforschung, 1926) . Of more general historical interest is his anthology of the accounts of Jewish participants in Napoleon's campaigns (Die Feldzuege Napoleons , 1913) . Grunwald's main interest, however, was Jewish folklore, and his contribution in this field is of lasting importance. In 1897 he founded the Gesellschaft fuer juedische Volkskunde and edited and largely wrote its organ, the Mitteillungen (1897–1922) , which was succeeded by the Jahrbuecher fuer juedische Volkskunde (1923–25) . " (From the 2007 Encyclopedia Judaica) Subjects: Finance -- Austria -- History. Jews -- Austria. Oppenheimer, Samuel, 1630-1703. Covers lightly aged and soiled, with lightly chipped edges. Backstrip lightly chipped at top. Last page earmarked. Pages crisp and clean. Very good + condition. (GER-36-30) Ger7, comhist2. (ja). Bookseller Inventory # 28881
