Rothschild seed money for 1st Jewish Hospital in Jerusalem... Daguerreotype...
Item # 659580
June 24, 1843
NILES' NATIONAL REGISTER, Baltimore, June 24, 1843 The back page has two interesting articles, one with historic relevance. Under the heading, "JEWISH HOSPITAL," is an article mentioning seed money being provided by Baron Rothschild for the establishment of a Jewish hospital in Jerusalem, under the condition that a school for both sexes be annexed to it. Approximately 10 years later this would lead to the establishment of the very first hospital in Jerusalem: the Meir Rothschild Hospital (Mayer de Rothschild Hospital). Quite historic.
Also included is a brief but interesting article headed: "DAGUERREOTYPE." See images for details.
Complete in 16 pages, 8 1/2 by 12 inches, very nice condition and measures.
As noted in Wikipedia, this title: "...(was) one of the most widely-circulated magazines in the United States...Devoted primarily to politics...considered an important source for the history of the period."
