About the item

In Hebrew and German. (4), 444 pages. 225 x 145 mm. All edges gilt, and back in 1874 gilt meant real gold leaf was used. In original sleeve. Printed on very good quality paper, which has NOT yellowed with age. Front free enpaper has stamp of a previous owner "J. Oppenheim di New-York Attualment a Merano, Italia" and underneath it, in a neat hand, is written "Penzione Alhambra" and in pencil, on the side, possibly by a different owner, "Jaffe." This is a delux edition, befitting a well to do 19th century traveler who spent time in both New York and Merano and who was surely a polyglot. He used a Hebrew-German prayerbook, has French and Italian in his stamp and being "from" New Yor, presumably spoke English. There is wear to the foot of the backstrip and to the sleeve. This is volume 2 of the set. As you can see in one of the images, Pension Alhambra is still standing and is no mean establishment. Additional images available upon request.
