This biography, plus letters and speeches of an immigrant Jewish doctor in Baltimore was written by Harry Friedenwald "ophthalmologist, educator, medical historian, rare-book collector & pioneer in the Zionist movement" INSCRIBED by the author. Both Harry and Aaron Friedenwald were members of the distinguished Baltimore family founded by Joseph Friedenwald who immigrated to Baltimore from Germany in 1832. Their father (Aaron) was also a respected physician in Baltimore. Interesting ephemera laid-in; e.g., invitation to lecture by Harry F., newspaper obituary of Aaron F., offprint memorial of Herbert F. (editor of the American Jewish Yearbook). A very interesting book from the perspective of medical history, history of the Jewish community in Baltimore and much valuable genealogical information on the Friedenwald family. ; Signed by Author; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a character lacking in ephemeral electronic renderings.
