Description
   Stories and a play by M. Bernstein, with an introduction by Ruben Brainin. The text is entirely in Hebrew. Ruben Brainin was a Hebrew publicist and biographer; born in Russia in the last half of the nineteenth century. At different times Brainin contributed to "Ha-Meliz," "Ha-Zefirah," "Ha-Maggid," and "Ha-Shiloah." In 1895 he issued a periodical under the title "Mi-Mizrah u-Mi-Ma-arab" (From East and West), of which only four numbers appeared.

Brainin is the author of several pamphlets, the most important of which are his sketch of Perez Smolenskin's life and works, Warsaw, 1896; and a translation of M. Lazarus' essay on Jeremiah, Warsaw, 1897. He has also written about one hundred biographical sketches of modern Jewish scholars and writers. To "Ahiasaf" Brainin has contributed the following articles: "Ilane Srak" (Barren Trees) (i. 32); "Bar Halafta" (ii. 71); "Dappim Mekutta'im" (Loose Leaves) (v. 120). He has also contributed to the same periodical the following biographical sketches: M. Lazarus (iv. 214); M. Güdemann (iv. 219); Theodore Herzl (v. 222); Israel Zangwill (v. 233); and Max Nordau (v. 247).
