About This Item

New York: Steam Press of the H. O. A. Industrial School, 1885. First edition. Hardcover. g. Octavo. XII, 294, XII, 376pp. Original gold and black-stamped burgundy cloth. Top edges gilt. Tissue-guarded engraved frontispiece depicting the Hebrew Orphan Asylum. Decorative head-, tailpieces and initials. This work is a collection of sermons delivered before the children of the Hebrew Orphan Asylum, a Jewish orphanage in New York City founded in 1860 by the Hebrew Benevolent Society. The orphanage closed in 1941, after pedagogical research concluded that children thrive better in foster care or small group homes, rather than in large institutions. The successor organization is the Jewish Child Care Association. Moderate rubbing along edges of bindings. Previous owner's Ex-libris on each front free endpaper (Harvey B. Franklin). Page 177/178 of first volume detached but present, as well as page 15/16 of second volume. Hinges slightly starting. Bindings in overall fair to good-, interior in good+ condition. About the author: Herman Baar (1826-1904) was an American educator, born in Germany. He received a preliminary education at the gymnasium of Hanover, and, after graduation, took a course in philology and theology at the University of Göttingen. On the completion of his studies he took a position as teacher at the celebrated undenominational school at Seesen, Germany, which he held for eight years. In 1857 Baar received the ministerial appointment in the Seel street synagogue, Liverpool, in which office he spent ten years. Loss of voice forced him to relinquish this post; and, believing a change of climate advisable, he went to New Orleans, La., where he directed a school. In 1876 he was appointed superintendent of the Hebrew Orphan Asylum of New York - a position he filled successfully till his resignation in 1899. Baar is the author of "Homely and Religious Topics" (two volumes of sermons to children), a Biblical history, and of numerous magazine articles.
