SEF-25-2.jpg (82186 bytes)1. • Benjamin, I. J. EIGHT YEARS IN ASIA AND AFRICA, FROM 1846 TO 1855. Hanover, Published By The Author, 1863. Hardcover, 8vo, xxii, 376 pages, map, 21 cm. 2nd edition in the English language with notes and emendations by the author during his stay in America. With a preface by Dr. Berthold Seeman. With a map, wood-cuts, and corresponding notes from Benjamin of Tudela, R. Petachia, Pedro Teixeira and Ritter's Erdkunde. An invaluable source of intimate information concerning the Jews of North Africa, the Middle East and the Far East, including India and China. On the penultimate page we find a "List of Subscribers in Bombay," namely various members of the affluent Sasoon clan. SUBJECT(S): Jews -- Politics and government. Jews -- Social conditions. Asia -- Description and travel. Africa, North -- Description and travel. Benajmin II, originally Israel Joseph Benjamin (1818-1864) was a "Romanian explorer and writer born in Falticeni, Moldavia. He engaged first in the lumber trade but after some initial success, he lost his fortune at the age of 25. Influenced by his failure and by the romantic trends of the time, he decided to emulate the medieval traveler Benjamin of Tudela. He styled himself Benjamin II and, in 1845, took to the road in search of the remnants of the Ten Lost Tribes. He traveled first to Egypt, from there through Erez Israel and Syria, and then to Armenia, Iraq, Kurdistan, Persia, India, and China. He came back by way of Afghanistan to Vienna and from there went on to Italy and to Tripoli, Tunisia, Algeria, and Morocco. Wherever his travels took him, he made a point of assembling information concerning the Jewish settlement in that place - the number of Jews of that community, how they earned their livelihood, their customs, and folklore. Although unscientific, his approach was simple and direct, and earned the praise of scholars like A. von Humboldt and A. Petermann. He described his experiences in a Hebrew travelogue, first published in French under the title Cinq annees de voyage en Orient 1846-1851. The Hebrew edition of the book, Sefer Mas'ei Yisrael, as revised by David Gordon, was published in Lyck in 1859. He published at his own expense in 1863 Nathan Hannover's Yeven Mezulah on the 17th-century Chmielnicki massacres in Poland. Over and above his literary endeavors, Benjamin undertook to ease the plight of the Jews of Morocco. He also appealed to Turkey, France, and England in an attempt to ameliorate the condition of the Jews of Kurdistan and Persia. In 1859 Benjamin II began a three-year journey through the United States, describing his travels in Drei Jahre in Amerika. He died in London in poverty while preparing another trip to the Orient" (Berenbaum and Skolnik in EJ, 2007). Benjamin's reports earned the praise of the German scholar Alexander von Humboldt.

First edition. 8vo, vi, [2], 431, [1], xlvii pages. Lacks engraved frontis portrait and 3 of 4 engraved plates. Bound in attractive modern cloth with spine label. Noah (1785-1851) was a lawyer, playwright, and journalist. He was born in Philadelphia of Portuguese-Jewish ancestry. "In 1813 [he] was appointed consul to Tunis, with a special mission to Algers. He was instructed to negotiate for the release of some Americans held as prisoners by the Algerine pirates. On May 23, 1813, he sailed from Charleston, but his vessel being captured by the British, he was taken to England and detained two months. In October he arrived in Cadiz, where he contracted with Richard R. Keene, an American who had become a Spanish subject, to effect the release of the twelve Americans … After being detained in France and Spain for more than a year, Noah finally arrived in Tunis. On July 30, 1815, he received a letter from James Monroe, secretary of state, revoking his commission and hinting at irregularities in his accounts. Monroe's treatment of Noah was never satisfactorily explained, though his association with Keene, who had been accused of treason, was doubtless detrimental … In January 1817, however, Noah received a letter from the Department of State which vindicated his conduct and returned several thousand dollars due him in the enterprise which resulted in the release of the American captives" (DAB) .

Leather, Philadelphia: Printed by Sherman & Co., for the Rev. Abraham de Sola, Edition: American stereotype ed. 18vo. 446 pages. Grace Aguilar was an English novelist descended from Portugese Maranos. She was an advocate of reform and a foe, despite her close association with Christians, of the conversionists.

Isaac Leeser had earlier published Aguilar's The Spirit of Judaism, and was an admirer of hers. He made this stereotyped edition available in the United States because of "repeated demand for it having been made lately, " and calls it in his preface "her dying confession of faith.

Bibliographical foot-notes. Blondheim (1884-1934) was a “U. S. Romance scholar. Born in Baltimore, Maryland, Blondheim studied at Johns Hopkins University where he became professor of Romance philology in 1924. During his studies at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes in Paris he began to work on the notes left by A. Darmesteter on the Old French glosses, over 1, 000 in number, in Rashi’s talmudic commentaries. Blondheim, after collating these with early manuscripts, restored their original form, established their exact meaning and published them as the first volume of his Les glosses francaises dans les commentaires talmudiques de Raschi. He then proceeded to study each term in all its ramifications, but on his untimely death left only 125 completed studies. They were published posthumously as the second volume of his Glosses, with his biography and a very extensive bibliography. The vast amount of historical and philological documentation gathered by Blondheim offers an invaluable source of information. Blondheim’s minor writings included many other contributions to the medieval Judeo-Romance dialects, e. G, medieval Judeo-French hymns. His indefatigable scientific endeavors did not hinder him from taking an active part in Jewish affairs, both philanthropic and Zionist. Blondheim prepared the first English translation of L. Pinsker’s Auto-Emancipation. His life ended on a tragic note. His manuscripts and papers are now in the National and University Library, Jerusalem” (Banitt in EJ, 2007) .

His hypothesis of the existence of a center of Jewish culture in medieval Rouen and of an important yeshivah there has recently been supported by archeological discoveries in that city. In a recent study he has concluded that the Dead Sea Scrolls originated not with a sect at Qumran but in Jerusalem, being hidden away by the Jews at the time of the First Revolt against Rome. ” (EJ) Has dust jacket.

London: N. P. Valentine, 1883. Hardcover, 8vo, 16, 112 pages. In Hebrew. 1st edition. Sefer ohole Shem. Kohen-Zedek (1827–1903) , was a “Hebrew poet, writer, and publicist. Kohen-Zedek, who was born in Lvov, studied rabbinics with Solomon Kluger in Brody and S. J. Nathanson in Lvov. He first engaged – unsuccessfully – in business and then turned to literature and journalism. He published a number of collections of his patriotic poetry in honor of the Austro-Hungarian emperor – from whom he received a gold medal for art and science in 1851 – and an anthology of contemporary poetry dedicated to Moses Montefiore, Neveh Kehillah. Kohen-Zedek edited a number of more or less short-lived Hebrew periodicals: Meged YeraIm, OAr khokhmah, Ha-Yehudi ha-NiI, and Or Torah. His weekly Ha-Mevasser, which included a literary supplement, Ha-Nesher, was the first Hebrew paper in Galicia; some of the best Hebrew writers and scholars contributed to it. He himself wrote in a lively and original meli? Ah style….

The Littman Library of Jewish Civilization, 1997. Hardcover, 380 pages. 9781874774044. The medieval Crown of Aragon reached the peak of its power and influence in the thirteenth century, and Jews took an active part in this expansion. In this detailed and meticulously researched study Yom Tov Assis deals with many important aspects of this period, which was truly a 'Golden Age' in the history of Aragonese and Catalan Jewry, both in terms of their relationship with the Crown and of their own cultural achievements. Professor Assis provides the most extensive treatment yet of Jewish self-government in the Hispanic kingdoms and the mutual interdependence of the Jewish and Christian communities. He describes institutions in very great detail, and examines the acute social problems that arose in the Jewish community and the dissent, polemics, and controversies that divided it. He shows how the proximity of the country to France and Provence on the one hand, and to Castile and Andalusia on the other, made Catalan Jewry a point of contact between Ashkenazi and Sephardi Jewry, demonstrating the effect this had on religious and cultural life, and in particular the consequences of the growing influence in Spain of Franco-German Jewry. The book is based on a very wide variety of primary sources-Jewish and non-Jewish, archival and halakhic material, notarial and royal records-in Latin, Catalan, Aragonese, and Hebrew. By drawing on these extensive sources, the author has been able to create a comprehensive description of the social, religious, and administrative aspects of Jewish life that throws much light on the wider society and economy of that period under the Crown of Aragon. The abundant detailed source notes make this an indispensable work of reference for all scholars of medieval Spanish history. Fine condition in fine dust jacket. (SEF-22A-2) (ID #25052) 30.00.

Brody studied at the Bratislava (Pressburg) Yeshivah and at the Rabbinical Seminary in Berlin where he also attended university and came under the influence of Abraham Berliner and Moritz Steinschneider. Brody intended to publish the works of all the important medieval Hebrew poets. In 1897 he began to publish the poems of Solomon ibn Gabirol, in 1910, those of Samuel ha-Nagid, and in 1926, Mahberot Immanuel of Immanuel of Rome; but for various reasons these editions, too, were not completed.

Albrecht an anthology of Hebrew poetry of the Spanish-Arabic school entitled Sha'ar ha-Shir (English ed, 1906) . Years after Brody's death, H.

In 1957 he was awarded the Israel Prize for Jewish Studies. Schirmann's research spans the entire range of medieval Hebrew poetry. He began his activities by investigating the Hebrew poetry of Spain, both as an independent area of research and also with reference to its links with Arabic literature. At the same time he studied Italian Hebrew poetry. Schirmann laid the foundations for modern research and critical evaluation of secular and sacred Hebrew poetry, as well as of the rhymed tales composed by the Jews of Spain and Italy. Schirmann's later researches were devoted primarily to early medieval Hebrew poetry. Schirmann's numerous publications and long teaching career led to the creation of a new attitude toward research in medieval Hebrew culture. His approach to the Hebrew intellectual creativity of the Middle Ages was within the wider context of general contemporary culture, and he emphasized its connection with other cultures and literary creativities” (Fleischer and Pagis in EJ 2007) .

Arama (c. 1420-1494) was a Spanish rabbi. "In order to counteract the effects of conversionist sermons to which the Jews of Aragon were compelled to listen, Arama delivered sermons on the principles of Judaism. These sermons became the basis of his later works and contain interesting data on the history of the Jews in Spain prior to their expulsion. Arama engaged in several public disputations with Christian scholars. After the expulsion of the Jews from Spain, in 1492 Arama settled in Naples where he died. Arama is best known as the author of Akedat Yizhak which exercised great influence on Jewish thought. Written in the form of philosophical homilies and allegorical commentaries on the Pentateuch, the work consists of 105 "Portals. " Each portal forms a complete sermon which is divided into two parts: derishah, and perishah. In the derishah, the author examines a philosophical idea in the light of his chosen texts, biblical and rabbinic, with which the sermon opens. In the perishah, the Scriptural commentary predominates and the difficulties which seem to appear in the text are solved with the aid of the central idea of the derishah. Thus, the gap between the two parts of the sermon is skillfully closed, and they merge into one harmonious whole.

Ibn Ezra (1089-1164) was a Spanish scholar. He traveled extensively, to the countries in North Africa, to Rome, and through Europe as far as Northern France. He sought acquaintance with scholars wherever he traveled, forming a particular friendship with Judah Halevi. In some locations he found cold comfort, such as in Rome: his poem “Nedod Hesir Oni” expresses Rome's unwelcome to his. In others, such as in France, he was welcomed, and his scholarly impact was felt for centuries thereafter. Most of his writing was a direct result of the wandering life; while traveling he wrote poetry, commentaries on the bible, grammars, scientific works, and translations.

Ibn Ezra, (also known as Abu Harun; c. 1055–after 1135) , Spanish Hebrew poet and philosopher. Born in Granada, he was a pupil of Isaac ibn Ghayyat in Lucena, "the city of poetry. " In his youth Moses acquired a very comprehensive Jewish and Arabic education. He appears to have held an honored position in the province of Granada, since his name is qualified by the Arabic title "\ahib al-shurta" (lit. "head of the police, " but also "his excellency") . Ibn Ezra encouraged Judah Halevi in his early poetic efforts and invited him to come to Granada where he supported him, and the two formed a lasting friendship. In 1090 a decisive change took place in his life: Granada was captured by the Almoravides, its Jewish community was destroyed, and the members of the Ibn Ezra family dispersed. It is not known why Ibn Ezra remained in Granada for a while. After much effort and suffering he also succeeded in fleeing to Christian Spain but he was not allowed to return to his native city for which he yearned all his life. (EJ, Staff) In good condition.

The authors he rendered into Hebrew, from Graeco-Arabic, Arabic and Judaeo-Arabic, include the following: Euclid, Geminus, Theodosius, Themistius, Maimonides, Hunayn b.

Like his father, Moses also wrote original works of philosophy and exegesis… It is hard to overestimate the influence of the Ibn Tibbon family. With their translations, they created a philosophical library in Hebrew and coined a technical terminology that would be used by translators and original authors throughout the middle ages. Their original works were important as well. This is especially the case with Samuel, Moses, and Jacob Anatoli, who laid the foundations for a Maimonidean tradition of philosophy and exegesis in Europe. ” (Robinson & Melammed, EJ, 2007) SUBJECT(S): Hygiene -- Early works to 1800.

He is the author of an ethical work in twenty chapters, entitled "Menorat ha-Maor" (Candlestick) . The work commences with a long poem, an acrostic on the author's name.

Princeton University Press, 2007. Softcover, 576 pages. 9780691121956. Hebrew culture experienced a renewal in medieval Spain that produced what is arguably the most powerful body of Jewish poetry written since the Bible. Fusing elements of East and West, Arabic and Hebrew, and the particular and the universal, this verse embodies an extraordinary sensuality and intense faith that transcend the limits of language, place, and time.Peter Cole's translations reveal this remarkable poetic world to English readers in all of its richness, humor, grace, gravity, and wisdom. The Dream of the Poem traces the arc of the entire period, presenting some four hundred poems by fifty-four poets, and including a panoramic historical introduction, short biographies of each poet, and extensive notes. (The original Hebrew texts are available on the Princeton University Press Web site.) By far the most potent and comprehensive gathering of medieval Hebrew poems ever assembled in English, Cole's anthology builds on what poet and translator Richard Howard has described as "the finest labor of poetic translation that I have seen in many years" and "an entire revelation: a body of lyric and didactic verse so intense, so intelligent, and so vivid that it appears to identify a whole dimension of historical consciousness previously unavailable to us." The Dream of the Poem is, Howard says, "a crowning achievement." (SEF-22A-13) (ID #25064) 30.00.

The years 950-1200 are often called the Golden Age of the Jews in Spain. During this period, the Jews reached a peak of achievement in all aspects of their life-political, spiritual, and cultural. They produced great works of literature and philosophy; their poetry represents a peak of literary achievement unparalleled in Hebrew until the twentieth century. The poets of the Golden Age forged the language of the Hebrew Bible into a magnificent instrument for the expression of every facet of their experience--love and friendship, war and exile, philosophy and prayer. Their poems reflect their overarching consciousness of Israel's relationship with God and their deep concern with the fate of the Jewish people in exile. Not until modern times did Hebrew poetic genius flourish again with such freedom and with such intensity. This volume conveys in modern English something of the greatness of that literature while as far as possible preserving the poetic values and beauty of the Hebrew original. Brief notes on the work of each of the thirteen poets represented put the poems in their proper perspective and do much to elucidate their meaning. The poets included are Dunash Halevi ben Labrat, Joseph ibn Abithur, Isaac ibn Kalpon, Samuel Hanagid, Solomon ibn Gabirol, Isaac ibn Gi'at, Moses ibn Ezra, Judah Halevi, Abraham ibn Ezra, Joseph ibn Zabara, Judah Alharizi, Shem Tob ben Palquera, and Todros ben Judah Abulafia. 'Remains the only anthology in English devoted entirely to the Golden Age with selections from all the major and some minor poets presented in verse translations. The book is a gift to the academic world and to all readers interested in the literary achievements of the Jews.' From the Foreword by Raymond ScheindlinAbout the AuthorDavid Goldstein was Curator of Hebrew Books and Manuscripts at the British Library. His translation of The Wisdom of the Zohar, also published by the Littman Library, was awarded the Webber Prize in 1987.

Adler (1861–1946) , was an “Anglo-Jewish bibliophile, collector, and author. Adler, the son of Chief Rabbi Nathan Marcus Adler, was a lawyer by profession and had unusual opportunities to travel under favorable conditions and to build up a remarkable library. He was among the first persons to realize the importance of the Cairo Genizah. He visited Egypt in 1888 and 1895–96 and brought back approximately 25, 000 fragments from the Genizah. His library ultimately included about 4, 500 manuscripts of which he published a summary Catalogue of Hebrew Manuscripts in the Collection of E. N. Adler. He also had a collection of some 30, 000 printed books in Judaica and in general fields. In order to make good the embezzlements of a business associate he sold his library in 1923 to the Jewish Theological Seminary of America in New York and the duplicates of the printed books (including many incunabula) to the Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati, thus helping to raise both of these libraries to positions of significance. Adler's published writings were mainly based on his travels and on materials in his own collection. Among them are About Hebrew Manuscripts, a collection of bibliographical essays; A Gazetteer of Hebrew Printing; Jews in Many Lands; Auto de Fe and Jew; History of the Jews of London; Jewish Travellers; and articles on the Samaritans and on the Egyptian and Persian Jews. Adler played an active role in English-Jewish communal affairs, especially as regards educational and overseas matters, and was an early member of the Hovevei Zion in England. His personal archives are at the library of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America” (Roth in EJ 2007) . Pencil markings on pages. Lightly bumped corners. Name inscribed on blank cover page.

Narkiss was born in Jerusalem, the son of Mordechai Narkiss , director of the Bezalel Art Museum. He studied at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and then taught history for five years at a secondary school in Haifa. It was only after his father's death, while examining and arranging his papers, that Narkiss found his vocation; to establish Jewish art as a specialized academic discipline. Through Narkiss' seminal work, the study of Jewish art has been transformed into a specialized academic discipline. He stressed the relationship of the style to that of the general art of the region, while pointing to specific Jewish elements and iconography. Narkiss published widely on the subject of illuminated Hebrew Manuscripts, and his major work on the subject, Hebrew Illuminated Manuscripts, has appeared in several editions” (Fraiman in EJ 2007) .

Sephiha (1923-) is a “Judeo-Spanish linguist and activist. Sephiha was born in Brussels to a Sephardi family from Istanbul. During the German occupation of Belgium, he was arrested in 1943 and deported to Auschwitz in September. He survived the death camp, where his father perished. After liberation, he resumed his studies in natural sciences, graduating in 1948 and working as a chemical engineer; however, he eventually decided to study and defend the linguistic and cultural heritage of his community. As a student and assistant teacher of Hispanic linguistics at the Sorbonne in Paris, in 1967 he started to give lectures and workshops on Judeo-Spanish at the National Institute of Oriental Languages. In 1970, Sephiha presented his doctoral thesis, a comparative study of two 16th-century Ladino translations of Deuteronomy and, in 1979, he obtained a professor’s degree for his theoretical analysis of the Ladino language. Sephiha, who retired in 1991, was instrumental in securing academic acceptance and public support for the "agonizing language" he spoke and taught. Besides his scientific and popular publications, from 1972 he launched several calls for revival of the language and in 1979 founded the "Association Vidas Largas for the Defense and Promotion of the Judeo-Spanish Language and Culture, " which organizes educational work in Sephardi communities as well as the rescue of literary, musical, and architectural treasures. Judeo-Spanish has since been included among the recognized minority languages of France. Among his writings are Le Ladino (judeo-espagnol calque): Deuteronome, versions de Constantinople et de Ferrare, L’agonie des Judeo-Espagnols, Le Ladino (judeo-espagnol calque): Structure et evolution d’une langue liturgique, and Le judeo-espagnol” (Wilke in EJ, 2007) .
