Longmans, Green, Reader, and Dyer. London 1870

Annie Henriette (Annie) de Rothschild Constance (Connie) de Rothschild


The first volume contains a historical account intended to familiarise young Jews with the history of the Israelites and the events and personages of the Bible. Conversational issues and Dogma are avoided. The second volume provides a background to the prophetic and poetic writings, together with practical criticism. The abridged edition is a simplified text book in one volume for schools, presenting the Old Testament account of the history of the Israelites in continuous narrative.
