Includes a 2-page mimeographed "ADDENDA" by the author tipped in: "The accompanying paper [i.e. pamphlet] on 'Some Legal Difficulties which beset the Jewess,' was prepared for the International Conference of Women Zionists which was held in London in July, 1920. Since then, the subject has been much discussed and the writer desires to add a few words."

Harvard & the Library of Congress both list copies (with the questionable date of 1917), but neither listing indicates the presence of the Addenda (which would suggest a date of 1919-20).
