Letter by Baron Jide Rothschild
This listing is an independent item not part of any collection
 p., 267:208 mm., light age staining, ink on paper, neat script, signed and dated.
Letter concerning the acquisition of horses by a member of the distinguished family of financiers and philanthropists, patrons of the arts and sciences who greatly contributed to Jewish causes, particularly to the settlement of Erez Israel. Over the years their name became a byword for opulence and munificence, serving both as a positive symbol of Jewish wealth, influence and philanthropy, among the Jewish masses, particularly in Eastern Europe and as a negative, sinister symbol in anti-Semitic literature and propaganda, which used it as tangible "proof" for the existence of an international plutocracy.
