Les Juifs Dans L'Empire Romain. Leur Condition Juridique, Economique Et Sociale. Complete In Two Volumes
Librairie Paul Geuthner, Paris 1914 - Quarto. XVIII, 510, VIII, 338pp. Full green cloth with original front wrappers laid on front boards. First edition of this work on the state of Jews in the Roman Empire. Juster's approach is primarily a legal one, but his goal, as he explains in the preface to his work, is the study of the relation of the Jewish people, by way of conflict and resolution, to their environment. This includes civic, communal, national, military, domestic, legal, economic, social, and sartorial relations. He does not treat "Jewish religion, Jewish morality or Jewish law" per se, but only their external effects on Jewish relations with the Roman world. The investigation of these matters, he explains, involves the utilization of varied sources, and their classification and critical evaluation. The result is an essay "on the Jews in pagan and Christian literature, a tableau of their geographical dispersion and indications of their numerical importance." Within these limits his work has remained a model of comprehensiveness, clarity, and scholarly documentation. If he errs at all, it is in the sharpness of his judgment stemming from the juridical approach used, but even critics of his method or conclusions find his work an indispensable tool and source of suggestion. Some age wear on bindings with some soiling and age-toning on front boards. Minor shelf wear. Handwritten title on spines. Slight age-toning along paper margin. Text in French. Bindings in overall good, interior in very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
