NotesFirst edition thus. Scarce, one copy only on OCLC, at Harvard. Extracted from the Bulletin de l'Alliance Israélite Universelle, paginated pp. 48-162, this copy has the MS notation "Edition corrigée" to the front wrapper. Based in Paris, the Alliance, the first international Jewish organization, advocated the emancipation of the Jewish population and the protection of Jewish rights around the world. The present piece is an account of a visit to the Yemen to report on the condition of the Yemenite Jews, perceived at the time in terms of one of the Lost Tribes. Sémach was the director of the Alliance's school at Beirut, and as part of his mission he was to lay the foundations for the education of the Yemenites within the Francophone western cultural model favoured by the organisation.
Octavo. Crudely glued into later card wrappers but now detached, typed title label to front wrapper, title page present.
Quite heavily browned, some staining, ink marks to the title page.
