The present publication is the first that has attempted to portray the separate and progressive history of the Jews in the different countries which they have made their homes, since their expulsion from the land which they had been identified for something like thirty centuries. In these pages the author has endeavoured to compile a narrative of a great part of what has occurred to the Jews of Asia in the last eighteen and a half centuries.

About the Author

Sidney Mendelssohn (-1917) was a diamond merchant in South Africa, but once retired had come in England to devote his leisure to reading, to public work, and above all the collection of his library of works on South Africa and the compilation of his priceless bibliography based on that collection. He was also a prominent member of the Jewish community in England.
