Publisher's Summary

Sidney Mendelssohn (-1917) was a diamond merchant in South Africa who retired in England to devote his leisure to public work, the collection of his library of works on South Africa and the compilation of his famed bibliography based on that collection. 

In his 1920 book The Jews of Africa, Mendelssohn attempts to chart the separate and progressive histories of the Jews in the different parts of Africa where they lived since their expulsion from the land by the Romans. He succeeds in compiling a narrative of a large part of the histories of the Jews of Africa during the centuries following the Romans’ destruction of Jerusalem.
