Pictorial grey cloth. 8vo. 188pp. Folding map. Illustrated. Text in German. The author was a Polish-born Askenazi Jew who studied the Ethiopian language at the Sorbonne. Between the years 1904 and 1946 he made 11 missions to Ethiopia. On his first trip he spent 18 months among the Beta Israel, studying their belief and customs. In his view they needed help resisting Christian missionary activity which threatened their survival as a Jewish community. Back in Europe he tried to enlist world Jewry on their behalf and promote Jewish education for them. In 1908-09 he spent 15 months in Abyssinia. He was received by Emperor Menelik II and pleaded for equitable treatment for the Beta Israel. This book describes that journey. It is illustrated with numerous photographs and a map of Abyssinia at the rear. A good copy with some light browning to the cloth and some wear to the spine tips. The text is good with some light wrinkling to the first section of pages and some tanning to a few page margins. There is a German inscription (non-authorial) on the half-title page.

Descripción M. Poppelauer, Berlin, 1910. RARE travel book describing the second journey made by Jacques Faitlovitch (1881-1955), who traveled to Ethiopia for the first time in 1904, with support from the French banker Baron Edmond de Rothschild. An Ashkenazi Jew born in Lodz in Poland, Faitlovitch later became a student of Ethiopian languages in the Sorbonne under the renowned Jewish-French Orientalist and traveler Joseph Halévy (1827-1917), who in 1868 was sent by the Alliance Israélite Universelle to Abyssinia to study the conditions of the Falashas. Often called the "father of the Falashas", Faitlovitch was a man who devoted his life to the cause of his "Black brethren" in Abyssinia, indirectly contributing to their immigration to Israel. He visited eleven times the Falashas bringing back dozens of Falasha manuscripts, objects and books, writing reports which still remain a source of ethnographic information for researchers today, creating pro-Falasha committees and mobilizing the international community to encourage the immigration of this community towards what was then Palestine and later Israel.
