[Poelhekke, F. J.]. - Laster of Misdaad? Historische bijdrage tot de kennis van het Judaïsme.

Leiden, Leeuwen, 1882. Octavo. Pp. 123. Errata slip tipped-in. Footnotes. Hardcover, contemporary cloth-backed marbled boards. In fine condition. (Old institutional stamps, shelf label; light foxing.) Crisp, practically unused copy. ¶ ~ First edition. A highly anti-Semitic treatise which aims to prove the connection between the Talmud and the practice of ritual murder among the Jews. It uses the murder of the 14 year old Hungarian girl Esther Solymossy as its point of departure. A Jew by the name of Joseph Scharf was brought to trial in Tisza-Eszlar in Hungary for presumably having murdered Solymossy in a Jewish ritual. The trial evoked much agitation throughout Europe and a dramatic rise in antisemitism. The work is believed to be the testimony of an 'insider', the convert Neofitus Moldavisch, a Jewish Rabbi turned Greek Orthodox Priest. The original work was written in Greek. It later appeared in Italian, and from this version translated into Dutch by F. J. Poelhekke, Chaplain in Leiden and Haarlem, who preferred to call himself 'the writer of 'Laster of Misdaad?''.
