HERZL, THEODORE. (1860-1904). Hungarian-born, Austrian Jewish writer; founder and leader of the first organized Zionist movement. ANS. (“Th. Herzl”). ¼p. 8vo. N.p., July 25, 1887. An inscribed page removed from a book. In German with translation.

 

"Miss Julie and Helene Naschauer, my excellent listeners…"

 

Herzl wrote for the Tageblatt through the fall of 1887 and in the following year published his second collection of essays, The Book of Folly. In 1889 Herzl married Julie Naschauer, almost 10 years his junior. Though their marriage was not a happy one it produced three children and endured until his death a decade and a half later. As Paris correspondent for the influential Neue Freie Presse, Herzl observed French anti-Semitism close at hand during the infamous Dreyfus Affair – the 1894 arrest, conviction and exile of an innocent French-Jewish army officer whose trial Herzl covered for the newspaper. During this period Herzl wrote a drama about Jewish-Christian relations called The Ghetto becoming convinced of the need to establish a Jewish homeland. His most influential work, The Jewish State published in early 1896, was a practical argument and outline for the realization of such a nation. The first Zionist congress convened in Basel in 1897 and established the World Zionist Congress under Herzl’s direction.
