Kestenbaum & Company is honored to offer for auction highly select items from the Jewish Historical Society of England’s sumptuous collection of rare Judaica. The oldest historical and learned society of its kind, the Jewish Historical Society of England (JHSE) was founded in 1893 by many of the foremost Anglo-Jewish communal leaders and scholars of the day. Past presidents have included Israel Zangwill, Sir Hermann Gollancz, Cecil Roth and Sir Isaiah Berlin. Early on in its existence, the society sought to form a collection of fine Judaica through the efforts of notable philanthropic figures including past JHSE presidents Lucien Wolf, Frederic David Mocatta and Gustave Tuck.
