Jacob Emden in the news
New York Herald March 23, 1857
Now this would be a nice book sale. Sigh.
The Athaeneum August 1868
Some Emden/ Eybeschutz stuff, when it was current events (1753) (Jacob Herschel is R. Ya'akov Emden):
Not to mention this, R. Yaavetz's personal copy of Azaryah de Rossi's Me'or Enajim (in the JTS library).
By the way, should one infer from לה' הארץ ומלואה that R. Yaakov Emden intended everyone to read this book? (Groan. If you get it, you get it.)
