Excerpt from Curiosities of Judaism: Facts, Opinions, Anecdotes and Remarks Relative to the Hebrew Nation

The Title which I have assumed for this little book, bringing it, so far, in juxta-position with the world-renowned work of the elder D'Tsraeli, might lead to the expectation of elaborate disquisitions and extended remarks on various subjects, which its nature would seem to include.

It is true that the field of research is extensive, fertile, and rich in its treasures; and will, no doubt, under younger and more vigorous labourings, yield ample and productive harvests. Repeating the words of my prospectus, my readers will please to remember that this is a work of little pretension. It is simply a selection, with references to every original source; "it does not aspire to the dignity of history, nor even of a chronological arrangement." Still, it is hoped that it may be found amusing and interesting, and, in some degree, useful to those who wish to investigate Jewish affairs subsequent to Scriptural periods.
