The Jew at Home: Impressions of a Summer and Autumn Spent with Him in Russia and Austria by Joseph Pennell; With Illustrations by the Author

London: William Heinemann, 1892. Hardcover. First edition. In his preface, Pennell states that he is neither a Jew hater nor a Jew lover. However, this book presents an almost consistently negative portrait of the Jewish people that he encountered. A manuscript note on the free front endpaper written by a former owner came to that conclusion as well. Also ink lettering on rear pastedown.Bound in original orange cloth with gilt titling to spine and blacktitling and image of a Jewish man on the front cover. Slight bumping. Interior pages clean. Very good plus. Measures 6 x 7.75 inches. 130 pages. REL/042821. Very Good+.
