   First edition. 375, [1] pp. plus wrappers, 225:144 mm., wide margins, light age staining. A very good copy bound in later boards, rubbed.
   Proceedings of the The Eleventh Congress. The demonstrative absence of Nordau at this Congress, held in Vienna on Sept. 29, 1913, was a silent protest against the abandonment of Herzl's line. Arguments about the body in charge of the Jewish Colonial Trust took place with the Executive and with Wolffsohn and his associates. Ruppin presented a detailed report on the first settlement activities on behalf of the Palestine Office. This report, together with Levin's survey of 30 years of settlement in Erez Israel, were an indirect tribute to "small-scale" deeds. On the suggestion of Weizmann and Ussishkin, it was resolved to establish a Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Bialik made an impressive appearance at the closing session. Wolffsohn, who was the president of the Eleventh Congress, died a year afterward.
