The Old Jewish Cemeteries at Charleston, S. C.: A Transcript of the Inscriptions on Their Tombstones, 1762-1903

Charleston: The Daggett Printing Company, 1903. First edition. Hardcover. 1/250. Octavo. 121, [1]pp. Original black cloth, with yellow lettering on front cover. This striking volume takes us on a rather unusual exploration in Charleston's Jewish history. Indeed, its author, Dr. Barnett A. Elzas, rabbi of K. K. Beth Elohim has transcripted the inscriptions of all the tombstones present in Charleston's three old Jewish cemeteries (The Coming Street cemetery; The Da Costa cemetery, and the cemetery at Hanover street). Many of these inscriptions are of great historical interest, and throw a valuable side-light upon the early history of the Jews in America. One of 250 unnumbered copies. Moderate rubbing along edges of binding. Title slightly faded on front cover. Binding in overall good, interior in very good condition. g to vg. Item #38488
