Item Description: The Jordan Publishing Co., New York, 1929. Grey Cloth with Gilt Titling. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: No DJ. First Edition Thus. This brilliant 358 page semetic benchmark, being an increasingly well respected and energetically applauded offering it is proudly presented with great and well deserved hubris by Hirschfeld Galleries in the publishers ORIGINAL binding. Said binding being Gray cloth with gold lettering on cover and spine. And this baby is rock solid, tight and clean, save for almost undetectable sunning to spine. Deckled fore-page edge. Fantastic frontispiece portrait of Israel Kasovich. One of the great Jewish autobiographies of modern times.A fascinating account of a singularly rich and beautiful life, and one of the most eventful periods in Jewish history.A story of Jewish life in Russia and America as full of thrills as a melodrama, yet all fact and fiction.The great drama of the Haskalah, back-to-the-land, and Zionist movements among the Jews, of the renaissance of Hebrew literature, of the strange Am Olan venture, of the Jewish persecutions in Czarist Russia, of the Jewish exodus from Russia to America, and of the throes of Americanization, vividly described by one who was not only an eye witness, but an active participant in these fateful developments in the life of Israel. Translated by Maximilian Hurwitz who noted: "No apologies are necessary for making available to the English-speaking world one of the most fascinating Jewish books of our time - perhaps the greatest Jewish autobiography to appear since 1793, the year Solomon Maimon published, in German, his celebrated Lebensgeshichte." Kasovich looks alternately dispassionately and passionately at all sides of this controversially chosen subject matter, and we at Hirschfield Galleries hope that only those who similarly read and contemplate with an objective mind would yearn to become the next caretaker of this seminalogic work. Alas, when all is said and done and the proverbial geese have come home to nest or roost, or whatever, and you're ready to decide to invest some of your hard-earned cash in this lofty offering, please consider that this book does indeed have the four absolute uppermost qualities we at Hirschfeld Galleries since 1931 have always sought, and demanded, in books: 1) excellence in content, 2) literary quality, 3) appealing design, and 4) significance of contribution. Another great altruistic offering opportunity for us and an even greater opportunity for self-actualized reception on your part. But enough of the lugubrious however allegorically wise jaw-jacking, enough said of the telluric parameters of select Hirschfeld Galleries' offerings such as this one which take on a life of their own and speak so very loudly for themselves. Read to learn and enjoy; go forth to share and enjoin. Research, analysis, dissertation, lucubrations or just enjoyment, this is the one. ACTUAL BOOK FOR SALE PICTURED. PLEASE DOUBLE CLICK ON IMAGE TO ENLARGE. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Introspective Hardcover. Bookseller Inventory # 006982
