£650

Number 253 of a limited edition of 400. This private-press edition of Herzl's speeches given at the first six Zionist World Congresses was published in commemoration of the tenth anniversary of his death and to coincide with the Leipzig Zionist Congress, where Salman Schocken (1877-1959), who as a publisher cooperated frequently with the Drugulin printing house, handed to each delegate a copy of this book. In 1915, Schocken, together with Martin Buber, had founded the Zionist journal 'Der Jude'. He built the Schocken Library in Jerusalem and bought the local newspaper 'Haaretz' in 1937.
