Folio (measures approximately 11 inches by 16 inches), modern Folio (11 by 16 inches), modern buff boards; pp. (4). $5000.Scarce 1846 Venetian printing of the oath to be taken by Jews as litigants in the courts, intended to humiliate and to emphasize their alleged perjurous nature, a striking example of a type of discriminatory oath imposed on Jews across the European continent.In medieval Europe, law courts customarily compelled Jews when in litigation with Gentiles to swear a special oath ""more judaico"" (after the fashion of the Jews). ""Both the text of the oath and the symbolic ritual involved in taking it were intended to give it the explicit character of a self-imposed curse, entailing detailed punishment if it were falsely taken. The ceremonial and symbolism were intended to strengthen and make… Read More

Through this, and through tight framing that locates the eyes, nose and mouth in the same position on each full-page bleed, he dispenses with the main racial differences. Other specific physiognomic characteristics that we think of as defining racial groups, such as slanting eyes, broad noses, or thin lips, turn out in Ohara's compendium not to be… Read More
