1818 The History of the Jews From the Destruction of Jerusalem To The Present Time
What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Leather Binding
Notable for its sympathetic treatment and sometimes considered the first such by a non Jewish individual. First thus, the first U.K edition of this work. Published five years after the US first edition of 1812. Both UK and US editions are scarce. Complete in one volume. The author, Hannah Adams, wrote several works on comparative religion and early U.S history. She was the first United States woman to work professionally as an author. The sponsorship of two Boston intellectuals, William Shaw and Joseph Stevens Buckminster aided her to prepare this work.

Further areas of rubbing to the spine, mostly to the raised bands and to the head and tail. Patches of rubbing to the front board, lighter to the rear board.
