New York: Mendel Beilis Publishing Company, 1926. First Edition. Quarto (27cm). Green cloth boards, lettered in gilt on spine and front cover; 264pp. Signed by Beilis on front endpaper, with his authentication stamp above signature. Slightly worn copy, with cracks to hinges, rubbing to board edges and spine ends; Good. & & Autobiography of Mendel Beilis, victim of the notorious "Beilis Affair" of 1913, in which Beilis, a Jewish brick-factory supervisor, was accused by antisemitic prosecutors of carrying out the "ritual killing" of a Kiev teenager. Beilis was eventually acquitted, but not before spending two years in prison and enduring a vicious series of antisemitic attacks in the Russian press. The current autobiography, published after Beilis's emigration to New York, was published first in Yiddish; American and Russian translations followed in the same year. Signed copies are uncommon.
