Stuttgart: Adolf Bonz & Comp. 1905. Second edition (Zweite Auflage). Hardcover. 8vo. 410,[2],pp. Richly color illustrated gray cloth by C. Liebich with title in gold on spine. Red page edges. Ribbon marker. "Purporting to be the work of a Jewish author, but in fact written by a non-Jewish anti-Semite, Das neue Jerusalem appears to be situated quite deliberately at the interface between anti-Semitic and Zionist discourses and to be the vehicle of subversive strategies of dissociation: it presumes not only to speak to its Jewish readers but, from an (allegedly) inside perspective, to speak for them. Thus, in effect, it attempts to insinuate Orientalist stereotypes to its Jewish readers with the aim of relegating them quite literally to "their" place in the Orient (Palestine)." (By Axel Stähler from Orientalist Strategies of Dissociation in a German "Jewish" novel). Text in German, gothic script. Minor age wear and staining on binding. Binding in very good, interior in near fine condition. Tight copy in a beautiful binding. vg. Item #18848
