Gott der Gerechte! Berlin geiht pleite! [God is Great! Berlin will go Bankrupt!]. A reproduction of an anti-Semitic proclamation from 1848. [Probably printed by Alfred Richard Meyer, Berlin-Wilmersdorf, 1921]. German.
"A speech held by Ya'akov Leibche Tulpental, a Jew who was granted civil rights by the Posen Dukedom, to his wife, Hanshe". The "speech" was printed in faulty German, supposed to imitate the Jewish manner of speech and ridicule it, with Hebrew idioms in Ashkenazi-German accent. The husband tells his wife about the dangers awaiting the Berlin Jews as a result of the anti-imperial civil riots by German workers, which will eventually endanger the Jews who will be the victims of the disturbances and pogroms. Leaf 43 cm. Good condition. Folding-marks. Tears, some fastened with paper-tape.
