   Title: Die Wiener Rabbinen seit den ältesten Zeiten bis auf die Gegenwart : kritisch-historisch nach den Quellen bearbeitet.

A history of the Rabbis of Vienna by Dr. Isaac Gastfreund (1845-1884). He was a Galician rabbinical scholar. He was the author of "Toledot Rabbi 'Akibah," a biography of the tanna Akiba b. Joseph (Lemberg, 1871; see "Ha-Shahar," ii. 399-400), and of the German work "Mohamed nach Talmud und Midrash" (issued in parts, Berlin, 1875; Vienna, 1877-80; see Sprenger in "Z. D. M. G." xxix. 654-659). He also wrote in Hebrew a biography of the Königswarter family entitled "Toledot Bet Königswarter" (Vienna, 1877); "Anshe Shem," biographies of Jonathan Eybeschütz and Solomon Munk (Lyck, 1879); and "Toledot Yellinek," a biography of Adolph Jellinek (Brody, 1880).
