Handbuch der Judenfrage: Eine Zusammenstellung des Wichtigsten Tatsachen zur Beurteilung des Jüdischen Volkes

Leipzig: Hammer-Verlag, 1923. A later edition of Theodor Fritsch’s popular Handbook of the Jewish Question, “a compendium of extremist antisemitic reflections on topics such as the Bible and the Talmud, the Jewish roots of Christianity with particular emphasis on the toxic Jewish influence on the Catholic Church, and the relationship between Judaism and Freemasonry” (Kitchen, “The Antisemite's Vade Mecum: Theodor Fritsch's Handbuch der Judenfrage”, p. 199). Fritsch first published the book in 1893 under his Hammer-Verlag imprint and it ultimately went through 49 editions through 1944.

Original illustrated boards with a serpent encircling the globe, 499, [1] p. In German. A unique copy. The front board was detached and then hand-sewn back to the spine; a pen-and-ink portrait of Fritsch has been tipped in as a frontis and a German newspaper article titled, “Luther’s War Against the Jews” has been tipped in to the rear endpaper. There are some penciled notes in German to the pastedown and a few penciled marginal ticks to the text. Item #08165
