2 Schoener, Allon; Feingold, Henry (Introduction by) The American Jewish Album: 1654 to the Present
This Album is a unique narrative in image and word that recounts the growth and flowering of the Jewish community in the United States. The profusion of evocative images record the panorama of Jewish life from 1654, when 23 Spanish and Portuguese colonists sought refuge in New Amsterdam, to the twentieth century, when the United States boasts the largest Jewish population in the world. Hundreds of illustrations, many never before reproduced in book form, were chosen from scores of sources, including public archives and private family albums. Not only the great and well-known, but the unsung are here. This book explores daily life in the Jewish communities in big cities, Jewish involvement with the California Gold Rush, farming communities, and the jewish contributions to the struggle for American independence. This is the adventure of an entire people who have enriched this nation in politics, the arts, commerce, finance, industry and labor. Includes index and extensive bibliography. The jacket has a repaired straight 3" Slit in the front gutter. ; 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall
