"This work was originally published only 10 years ago, but in a world entirely different from the world of today. At that time it was possible to regard the rise of the Nazis to power in Germany merely as an exceptionally unpleasant episode. It was impossible to foretell that the result was to be the utter overwhelming, and almost extermination, of European Jewry. For this new edition, a further section has been written at patronising the unhappy history of the past few years. The whole text has been revised and corrected in the light of 10 years reading and research." -- preface to the illustrated edition page VI . revised and enlarged. Size: 4to 9¾" - 12" tall.

About this Item: New York; McGraw-Hill, 1961. Hardcover. Publishers cloth. 4to. 971 pages. 28 cm. First edition. A comprehensive history of Jewish art, from antiquity to the present, a volume still considered definitive. The first edition includes 457 plates, many are in color. Written by Cecil Roth (Bezalel; 1899–1970) , Jewish historian; editor in chief of the first edition of the Encyclopaedia Judaica. "Roth's edited volume appeared in Hebrew in 1956/57 (Tel Aviv: Masadah) and in English in 1961 (New York, McGraw-Hill) , and was slightly revised by Bezalel Narkiss in 1971 (London: Vallentine, Mitchell) . . This impressive collection of twenty essays includes articles by such greats as Roth himself, M. Avi-Yonah, Rachel Wischnitzer, L. A. Mayer, A. M. Haberman, Alfred Werner, and Franz Landsberger. Covering what was known of Jewish artistic creation in the late 1950's, this volume was a landmark, each author setting his or her distinctive specialty and tone to each article. Collectively, this volume was intended to tell the story of the art of a nation, from its Biblical origins through the most contemporary of art by Jews or about Judaism. Even the circular plan of the Galilean village of Nahalal is included in this volume, together with Canaanite goddesses, ancient synagogues, glass from Islamic lands, printed Hebrew books, and the paintings of Raphael and Moses Soyer. Just as Italians, Britons, and Americans have national art forms, so too, argues this volume, do the Jews. This is despite the widely-held notion that Jews don't do art owing to their religion, a conception that this volume comes to set aside. In fact, Roth opens his volume with an apologia: ‘The conception of Jewish Art may appear to some to be a contradiction in terms’ (p.11) . The normalization of the Jews, particularly their national normalization, required that they have a national art, like all of the nations. Roth's book is in many ways the Jewish counterpart to the well-known introduction to the history of art (now multi-authored) , Gardner's Art Through The Ages. It is the one-volume statement of the Jewish contribution to the world of art. " (Review by Steven Fine) Subjects: Jewish art - History. Hinges shaken, no dustjacket, otherwise clean and fresh. Good condition. (ART-18-38). Seller Inventory # 30595

About this Item: Tel-Aviv; E. Lev?in-Epsht?in, 1968. Hardcover. (FT) Publishers cloth. Folio. 116 pages. 34 cm. First edition. In Hebrew and English. Bound in red cloth with gilt lettering, in illustrated dustjacket, housed in red boards, inserted into case made of boards with printed wraps. "The Ketuba: Jewish marriage contracts through the ages. " Written by David Davidovitch, with a foreword by Cecil Roth, and designed by Avigail and Itshak Yoresh. This exceedingly detailed volume both outlines the community and rabbinic history and practice of the Ketuba, with 18 facsimile full page color illustrated pastedown reproductions, as well as dozens more black and white illustrations, also showing other facets of marriage rites, including contemporary photographs and illuminated manuscripts depicting the elaborate weddings of Yemenite Jews. The Ketubbah; "a document recording the financial obligations which the husband undertakes toward his wife in respect of, and consequent to, their marriage, obligations which in principle are imposed on him by law. Most Jewish communities have followed the custom of decorating the ketubbah. An Ashkenazi ketubbah from Krems. Austria, dated 1392, shows that illumination was usual among Ashkenazi communities during the Middle Ages. However, the best-known illuminated ketubbot, which date from the 16th century onward, were from Italy, certain Sephardi communities, and from Near and Far Eastern Jewry. Richly illuminated ketubbot, which date from the 17th and 18th centuries, are from Italy, Corfu, the Balkans, and Gibraltar. They are written on parchment and the text is usually bordered by an illuminated frame, depicting a variety of decorative themes in many bright colors. The frame, which is sometimes divided into a diptych, is often illustrated with biblical or mythological motifs, portraits of the bride and groom in contemporary costume, family coats of arms, symbols representing conjugal bliss, and even nude figures. Typical Jewish symbols were used, such as the hands forming the priestly blessing, a sign that the groom was from a family of kohanim, or a ewer and basin indicating a levite. Sometimes, the biblical figures represented in the ketubbah symbolize the bride or groom's name; thus a scene from the life of Joseph might mean that the groom's name was Joseph, a scene from the Book of Ruth that the bride's name was Ruth. Dutch Sephardi ketubbot of the same period are distinguished by their delicate ornamental engraving. They were mainly executed on parchment and are in the best Dutch copper-engraving tradition. An outstanding example is a 1658 Rotterdam ketubbah, executed by Shalom Italia, a copper engraver from Mantua who emigrated to Holland. This ketubbah is rich in biblical motifs. Another famous copperengraved ketubbah, dating from the late 17th century, is decorated with flowers and allegorical figures in the typical Dutch-Jewish contemporary manner. The border contains the date 1693, commemorating the year of the death of the renowned Amsterdam rabbi, Isaac Aboab de Fonseca. " (EJ 2008) Subjects: Jewish illumination of books and manuscripts. Ketubah in art. Light shelf wear to outer case, otherwise fine. Great condition. (ART-18-37B)xx. Seller Inventory # 30610
