About This Item

216 pages with frontispiece, photographs, illustrations and diagrams. Royal octavo (9 3/4" x 6 1/2) bound in original publisher's blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine and "Thames & Hudson" insignia to cover in original pictorial jacket. First edition. This book captures the richness and vitality of traditional Jewish culture: a web of legend, folklore and superstition that is crucial to understanding Judaism. Topics include Jewish law, literature and poetry; the festivals of the Jewish year; the languages and sub-groups within the Jewish community; and the many countries that Jews have lived in. The book also reveals another side of Judaism, a world populated by angels and demons, sages and Kabbalists, and creatures unknown to zoologists. Condition: Near fine in like jacket.
