Description
   Eulogy for Amschel (Anshel) Mayer Rothschild by R. Moses ben Nahum Katzenellbogen. The text is printed twice, in German (from the left) and Hebrew (from the right. There are Hebrew and German title pages, the latter entitled Trauer Gedanken (mourning thoughts). Amschel Mayer von Rothschild (June 12, 1773–December 6, 1855), was, after the death of his father, senior member and therefore head of Frankfort branch. The Austrian Emperer knighted him, making him a Freiherr, in 1822. Amschel loaned large amounts to many German rulers, took steps to have the Leibzoll abolished in Bavaria and other German states. Very pious, he furnished the financial backing for the secessionist Orthodox community of R. S. R. Hirsch in Frankfort. The Frankfort house was attacked during the Hep! Hep! disturbances, and again during the 1848 Revolution, when anticapitalist, anti-Semitic, and democratic feelings coalesced against the Rothschilds. Amschel left no children and his position was inherited by the sons of his brother Karl.
