Description: Sátoraljajhely, W. Alexander, 1910. Small octavo. Pp. 288. Portrait frontispiece and another plate. Some text ornaments. List of participants. Hardcover, bound in the original publisher's grained crimson cloth, small plate of Jerusalem mounted on upper cover, black lettering, floral endpapers apparently lacking free endpaper, cloth bit faded and marked, slight wear at spine ends. Bit shaken, opens stiff, but nevertheless a lovely copy. ¶ ~ The travelogue of Wilhelm Alexander describes the pilgrimage in 1910 of 68 Jews, predominantly Hungarian, from Budapest to Palestine. They first travelled to Triest, where they embarked on the "Elektra", sailing to Alexandria. From Alexandria, via Cairo and Port Said, they arrived at Jaffa. Alexander's report is a remarkable account. It combines his critical, sometime painful observations, detailed descriptions of meetings with the local community and dignitaries, with a travelogues of pilgrimages to the holy places, interweaved with prayers and words of praise, which he brings in Hebrew. Very rare.
