About This Item

London : Abraham Benisch. 1867-1868. Newspaper. Brit1, period1 , 211 . 1st edition. Lacks outer bindings, original period internal sewn binding in tact. Folio, 400 pages (8 pages each issue. Complete for 1866 and first half of 1867. English with occasional Hebrew. The Jewish Chronicle, Founded in 1841, it is the oldest continuously published Jewish newspaper in the world. It was initially under the editorship of D. Meldola and M. Angel. “On Oct 18, 1844, to the editorship of Joseph Mitchell, it took the title of "The Jewish Chronicle (New Series) and Working Man's Friend"; it appeared only fortnightly till July 9, 1847, when it became a weekly; from Aug. 18, 1854, it was edited by M. H. Bresslau, who changed the title to "The Jewish Chronicle and Hebrew Observer. " From Jan. 12, 1855, A. Benisch assumed the editorship, which he retained till April 2, 1869, when Michael Henry took charge of the paper until his death” (JE, 1905) . This run from the final 2 years of the American Civil War, includes numerous ads and announcements from the period, indicating deaths, weddings, and celebrations of all kinds, from across the UK, the British Empire, English Speaking Jewry and, indeed, the entire world. Anniversary dinners and events often list participants, which sometimes read like who’s who’s of Anglo-jewry of the period, and at other times mention names from the far reaches of the British Empire. Too many various reports, letters, discussions, and ads to describe, SUBJECT(S) : Jews -- Great Britain -- Newspapers. First and final leaves show exposure wear, as expected, with corner curling to last 20 issues and edgewear generally not extending into the text. Mid-19th century paper has held up well, Good solid condition overall. Scarce to come up in the trade. (br-11-4) .
