St. Petersburg: NP, 1877. First edition. Hardcover. Octavo. (xv) 456pp. Modern dark brown textured leather boards. The work is a thorough examination of the history of Russian laws relating to the Jewish community from the medieval period up through the 19th century. The book would have been quite important and informative reading material, at a time when there was somewhat increased opening up of Russian society, and more education and economic opportunities for Russian Jews, although they were still subject to significant social and political persecution. Orchansky's book was published posthumously and was compiled from a number of his writings on the subject. There is a detailed table of contents at the front of the book.

Ex-Library copy with ink stamps in Hebrew on the half-title and final page. Book block tight overall. Binding in near fine, interior in very good- condition overall. Scarce. vg- to near fine.
