"The first publication, in any language, of the complete diaries of the founder of the world Zionist movement. These diaries are Herzl's day-to-day record of his almost single-handed struggle, and of successes achieved at the cost of his career, his fortune, his family - and his very life. Contains, for the first time, every word Herzl entered in the eighteen copybooks he filled. A fascinating document, as well as an illuminating self-portrait of one of the most unusual personalities of recent times, the acknowledged "father of the Jewish State." - slip box. pp. vi, 431; 432-827; 828-1270; 1271-1631; 1632-1961. "[Volume 5] contains the annotations written by the editor; the list of code-words used by Herzl; and the index. The annotations, arranged alphabetically, contain brief biographies of practically all the individuals mentioned in the Diaries and short identifications of the place names and other geographical names appearing in the Diaries, either in the dateline or in the entries themselves." - p.1635. Different black and white photographic frontis portrait of Herzl in each volume. Issued without dust jackets. All volumes clean, bright and unmarked with light wear to publisher's burgundy cloth lettered in silver upon spines. All bindings sound. Narrow three-inch opening to lower left corner of slipcase which otherwise shows average wear and features illustrations of Herzl on two sides. A quality copy of this profoundly influential record.
