Phineas Kahn: Portrait of an Immigrant

By BLUMENFELD, SIMON

London: Jonathan Cape, 1937. First Edition. Very good in dust jacket. Presentation copy; inscribed by the author in the year of publication. Blumenfeld was a mysterious figure, whose claim to being Jewish remains dubious (his family was Sicilian, at least immediately). However, one might ask who would claim that who was not? Okay, perhaps some might, but to have done so at that period might not have been the most advisable time to do so. Steven Berkoff, the outspoken English actor, wrote an introduction for the novel’s 1988 re-issue.

$600.00

The Brimming Lake

By SMITH, ASHLEY

London: Eyre & Spottiswoode, 1937. First Edition. Fine in a minutely worn dust jacket with the publisher’s price stickers at the bottom of the front flap. From the flap copy: “This is a proletarian novel, but not in the cant sense of the phrase. Mr. Ashley Smith, London born of Jewish forbears...” A novel of what we might call “the melting pot.”

$875.00

Fathers and Sons

By JEHOUDA, JOSUE

London: Edward Goldston, 1936. First English Edition. Some cloth spotting; very good or a little better in dust jacket.
