Description Information
   First edition of commentary and translation. 188, [4], [8 illustrated] pp., 188:120 mm., light age staining. A very good crisp copy bound in the original boards, lacks spine.
   With translation and commentary in Hungarian by Dr. Emil Roth. Pp. 164-187 are by Dr. Ernest Namenyi (Erno; 1888–1957), Hungarian art historian, economist, and writer. Born in Nagykanizsa, NamMnyi was the son of Rabbi Ede Neumann. He studied in Budapest and in Brussels, and after he received his doctorate in law was appointed a research associate in the Institut de Sociologie Solvay from 1911 to 1914. He specialized in banking with his uncle, P. Philipson, the noted banker. With the outbreak of World War I he returned to Hungary, and from 1916 to 1949 served as the secretary and later the director of Orszagos Iparegyesulet ("National Industrial Association"). He published economic and sociological articles in Hungarian and French. He also did research in Jewish art, which he felt was an educational means of striving for aesthetics and ethics in Judaism. This outlook led him to found the Jewish Liberal program movement known as "Ezsajas Vallasos Tarsasag" ("Isaiah Religious Society"). He was among the leaders of the Jewish Museum, and from 1942 served as its director and from 1947 as chairman, succeeding in collecting for it the best works of Jewish artists in and out of Hungary. He also worked for the central Jewish library, which included the remnants of both public and private Jewish libraries, and these collections were housed in the Rabbinical Seminary in Budapest. When the journal Libanon was transferred to the Jewish Museum, Namenyi participated in its editing until 1944.
