Detail Description

The first important history of the Jews in England.

James Picciotto (1830–1897), was a historian of English Jewry and also a hymnologist. He was for many years secretary to the Morocco Relief Fund. From 1872 onward he published in the Jewish Chronicle a series of discursive historical essays based to some extent on original sources. These were republished in volume form in 1875 under the title Sketches of Anglo-Jewish History – the earliest popular work on Anglo-Jewish history. He was among the founders of the Jewish Historical Society of England.
