Philadelphia: Jewish Publication Society, 1903. Simon Dubnow (1860-1941), a "non-Zionist Jewish nationalist" developed a sociological approach to Jewish history; his magnificent "History of the Jews in Russian and Poland" remains a true delight to read and study. Fleeing the pogroms, he lived in Berlin and wrote in German; in a disturbing coda, he was murdered by the Gestapo in 1941. This is a Very Good copy of the First American Edition, a thoughtful group of essays. Quite a scarce work. Red ribbed cloth binding with gilt lettering.
