        Hatikva Hatikvoh JEWISH NATIONAL ANTHEM

      R. Mazin &Co., Ltd, for the Egnlish Zionist Fedration [1916 or later], 141, Witecapel Road, London, E. J, England - Nina Ruth Davis Salaman (1877 - 1925) was a well-regarded Hebraist, known especially for her translations of medieval Hebrew poetry, at a time when Jewish scholarship in Europe was a male preserve. In addition to her translations, she published historical and critical essays, book reviews, and an anthology of Jewish readings for children, as well as poetry of her own. She born in Derby in England¿s industrial heartland, to Arthur and Louisa (Jonas) Davis. Her father¿s family were precision instrument makers (telescopes, opera glasses, miners¿ lamps) and had lived in England since the early nineteenth century. When she was six weeks old, the family moved to London, settling first in Kilburn and then later in Bayswater. Although not an observant Jew by birth (there were few Jews and no synagogue in Derby), Arthur Davis embraced Orthodoxy and, having mastered the Hebrew language, devoted his leisure to Jewish scholarship. In 1892, he published a study of the neginot (cantillation marks) in the Masoretic text of the Bible, and in the next decade, working with Herbert Adler (1876¿1940), a lawyer and nephew of Chief Rabbi Hermann Adler (1839¿1911), prepared what became the standard British edition and translation of the mahzor (festival prayer book). He transmitted his enthusiasm for Hebrew to his daughter Nina and, most unusually, gave her and her older sister, Elsie, an intensive Hebrew education, personally teaching them every day. While still in her teens, Nina began publishing translations of medieval Hebrew poetry in the Anglo-Jewish press. She also contributed to her father¿s edition of the mahzor. Israel Zangwill (1864¿1926), the best known Jewish writer in the English-speaking world at the time and, like her father, a member of the Kilburn Wanderers (the circle that formed around Solomon Schechter (1847¿1915) in the 1880s), encouraged her and provided her with an introduction to Judge Mayer Sulzberger (1843¿1923), a central figure in the Jewish Publication Society of America, which published her collection Songs of Exile by Hebrew Poets in 1901. On October 23, 1901, Nina married Redcliffe Nathan Salaman (1874¿1955), a physician whom she had met four months earlier at the New West End Synagogue. (It was, literally, love at first sight - they were engaged only ten days after setting eyes on each other.) After living in Berlin for several months, while Redcliffe completed advanced training in pathology, they returned to London, where he assumed the directorship of the Pathological Institute at the London Hospital. However, tuberculosis forced him to leave medicine, and after three months of recuperation in Switzerland, he and Nina settled in the country, in the village of Barley in Hertfordshire. Family money (ostrich feathers and London real estate) having relieved him of the need to earn a living, they lived comfortably with their six children (one of whom died in childhood) and numerous servants in a thirty-room country house. Nina Salaman continued to pursue her interest in medieval Hebrew poetry, while at the same time supervising her children¿s education, overseeing nannies, tutors, and servants, and, as the local squire¿s wife, entertaining the vicar, hosting garden parties, and helping the village poor. Despite Barley¿s distance from London, she maintained a kosher home (a matter of greater concern to her than to her husband) and Sabbath observance. For the festivals, the family traveled to London, where they stayed with one of Redcliffe¿s numerous siblings and worshiped at the New West End Synagogue. She took personal responsibility for the Hebrew education of her children until they left for boarding school, especially that of her eldest son Myer, who she hoped would become a rabbi. Barley¿s proximity to Cambridge brought Salaman into close contact with Israel Abrahams (1858¿1924), reader in rabbinics at the university since 1902 and, like Zangwill and her father, one of the Kilburn Wanderers . . .

      Leipzig : B. Elischer, 1916 - 1st Edition. Original Boards. 8vo. 224 pages ; 20 cm. In German. Title translates into English as, "Biology of Ethics. " This copy is inscribed by Nordau to Israel Zangwill in August 1922 on the first page, "to my (dear) friend Israel Zangwill, (fondly) yours, M. Nordau. Paris August 19th 1922." Zangill, Nordau, and Herzl were chums; a recent article on Zangwill in the Times of Israel noted that "Zangwill made the jump into journalism and at the same time began his involvement with Jewish emancipation. He met and became fast friends with his fellow writers, Theodor Herzl and Max Nordau, even hosting Herzl in London at the turn of the century" (August 28, 2015) . Max Nordau (1849-1923) was a co-founder of the World Zionist Organization. He was a political Zionist, not a cultural or religious Zionist, having ceased being an observant Jew at eighteen, instead becoming a "militant naturalist and evolutionist, " and making his fame with Die Conventionellen Luegen der Kulturmenschheit, first published in 1883. Also at eighteen, he started his career in journalism, on the staff of the Pester Lloyd. While condemning modern culture and politics, the situation of the Jewish people was never far from Nordau's mind. He met Theodor Herzl in 1982, and soon after began discussing the possibility of a Jewish state with him. He was vice president of the First through Sixth Zionist Congresses, and president of the Seventh through Tenth. (EJ, 2007) "Zangwill was a British author at the forefront of cultural Zionism during the 19th century, he was a close associate of Theodor Herzl. He later rejected the search for a Jewish homeland and became the prime thinker behind the territorial movement. " (Wikipeida, 2016) SUBJECTS: Ethics. Evolutionary. Some browning. Smudges to the words "dear" and "fondly" in the inscription. Oveall about very good condition. (SPEC-42-25) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Lithographisches Skizzenbuch 1916 (lithographic sketch book) 1/30 copies

      Published by the author, München 1916 - Folio (15 3/4 x 11"). Unpaginated. [45] leaves. Original 3/4 morocco over paper covered boards, with gold lettering to front cover.Dedicated to Arthur Böthlingk (1849-1929), a famed German historian, Robert Genin's "Lithographisches Skizzenbuch" is a stunning collection of 97 in-text and 7 full-page sketches, all in lithographic printing. Most lithographs are colored by hand. The seven full-page lithographs at rear are handsigned in blue pencil by Genin himself. Self-published in 1916 during the artist's internment in Munich as citizen of a hostile state (Russia), Robert Genin's lithographic sketch book sheds a valuable light on the artist's ardent and tormented soul. The first sketches depict Genin's native town in Russia and some of its people followed by a few illustrations of Cairo, Egypt. Most of the sketches that follow depict sad-looking workers; drunkards; a widow with her children; a woman holding her dead child, etc.One of only 30 copies, of which this is No. 26.Binding rubbed along edges with some abrasion to leather. Head and tail of spine slightly chipped. Closed tears along joints. Some darkening and soiling to covers. Text in German. Binding in overall fair, interior in very good condition. About the author: Robert Genin (1884-1941) was a Russian artist, painter, draftsman, and illustrator of Jewish origin, who lived in the Russian Empire, Germany, France, Switzerland and the USSR. In 1912, he became one of the founding members of the artists group Sema, and in 1913 became a member of the Münchener neue Secession. The outbreak of the First World War was a disastrous turn for his rise in the German art scene, and during the war Genin was interned in Munich as citizen of a hostile state. After the war he moved to Berlin. Over the period of 1915-1926, Genin's styles of painting and drawing developed in line with the direction of German expressionism. In 1929, he moved to Paris where his artistic style developed further under the influence of Fauvism and Neo-primitivism. In 1936, Genin finally returned to the USSR, with the intention of taking an active part in building up the new socialist society by painting frescos on the walls of Moscow's new buildings. He committed suicide on August 16, 1941, a few days after a devastating air raid by German bombers. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Map of China Compiled From the Latest and Most Authentic Surveys.

      Large folding map printed in black and red, 67 x 62 inches in six sections, mounted on linen and folded, enclosed in the original cloth case with printed title and paper label as key. Fine. The Asiatic Petroleum Company was a joint venture between the Shell and Royal Dutch oil companies and was founded in 1903. It operated throughout Asia from the start of the 20th. Century with its headquarters on the Bund in Shanghai. This map would appear to reflect the growing market for oil products throughout China, a market which, by the start of the Second World, had expanded to over 1000 sales outlets across some 20 provinces. Edwin Dingle, who was responsible for this map along with H.J.Fruin, lived in China for over twenty years and in 1917 published The New Atlas and Commercial Gazetteer of China which served as the standard reference for many years and was described as the " biggest and best book on the resources of China." A rare and highly detailed commercial map of China. The box containing the map is stamped " Travelling Engineer" which suggests that only a limited number of copies would have been produced specifically for the Asiatic Petroleum Co., thus accounting for its scarcity.
