Originally published in 1905 in English under the title Jews in Many Lands; this is an authorized translation. Adler "was a lawyer by profession and had unusual opportunities to travel under favorable conditions and to build up a remarkable library. He was among the first persons to realize the importance of the Cairo Genizah. He visited Egypt in 1888 and 1895-96 and brought back approximately 25, 000 fragments from the Genizah. His library ultimately included about 4, 500 manuscripts of which he published a summary Catalogue of Hebrew Manuscripts in the Collection of E. N. Adler (1921) . He also had a collection of some 30, 000 printed books in Judaica and in general fields. In order to make good the embezzlements of a business associate he sold his library in 1923 to the Jewish Theological Seminary of America in New York and the duplicates of the printed books (including many incunabula) to the Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati, thus helping to raise both of these libraries to positions of significance. By an agreement made at that time, the manuscripts that he subsequently collected passed after his death to the Jewish Theological Seminary. Adler's published writings were mainly based on his travels and on materials in his own collection. " (EJ) SUBJECT(S) : Jewish diaspora. OCLC lists 16 copies worldwide.
