Mark Twain on the Jews...



Item # 578837 HARPER'S NEW MONTHLY MAGAZINE, New York, Sept., 1899   Also of significance is the article: "Concerning The Jews, by Mark Twain" takes over 8 pages. This is a significant piece, as it is a follow-up to his comment in his article in the March, 1898 issue of Harper's New Monthly Magazine in which he made--for the first time--a supportive comment concerning the Jews. Previous to that time it was presumed Twain held antisemitic leanings. The 1898 created some reaction among the public, and to provide some clarity to his defense of the Jews he wrote this article, which pleased almost no one. Twain claimed that hatred towards the Jews was based primarily on envy for their economic success.
Also: "The Storming of Fort Pillow" which includes 5 prints; "When A Document Is Official, by Frederic Remington" which includes 2 full page prints by him. Also: "The First American--His Homes & his Households" which is concerning Washington's home at Mount Vernon, with several prints.
Disbound without wrappers, 160 pages, measures 6 1/2 by 9 1/2 inches, great condition.
