About the "Freiherrlich Carl von Rothschild'sche öffentliche Bibliothek":
The Rothschild Palais, designed in the neoclassical style by the Paris-educated architect Johann Friedrich Christian Hess, in 1820/21, symbolizes the art of living of a Bourgeoisie family Jewish family from the 19th century. Built originally for the German-Jewish banker Joseph Isaak Speyer, it was bought by Baron Mayer Carl von Rothschild in 1846, who used it as his summer residence. In 1895 the building was turned into a library by Hannah Louise von Rothschild (1850-1892), Carl von Rhothschild's daughter. (She is portrayed at the frontispiece). The name of the library was "Freiherrlich Carl von Rothschild'sche öffentliche Bibliothek" [Baron Carl von Rhothschild's public library]. Since 1928, the municipality of Frankfurt am Main is the owner. It is now part of the university and municipal library Frankfurt. (Source: Website of the Jewish Museum in Frankfurt/Main).
