Detail Description

Collection of twenty-six stories illustrating various aspects of Jewish life and culture in Europe prior to the twentieth century. Each story takes place in a different country and develops an isolated topic or theme from Jewish life in a sometimes humorous, sometimes dramatic, and often sentimental fashion. While the endings are always happy, the level of historic realism in the stories is high. Jewish Life offers a richly detailed portrait of Jewish customs and culture prior to the deplorably successful attempt to destroy them during the Holocaust. This work is exquisitely illustrated throughout with 27 full-page plates in heliogravure, and numerous in-text illustrations and vignettes.

Illustrated by: GĂ©rardin, Alphons Levy, Emil Levy, Heinrich Levy, Eduard Loevy, Schlesinger, Vogel, Worms.
