pp 124. Judaeo-Christian conversion narrative of an 1830s Austrian immigrant to Britain with his naturalisation papers signed by Prime Minister Palmerston and John Romilly as Master of the Rolls. Joseph Beibitz's papers reveal that he emigrated from Austria as a tea dealer in 1832, later settling probably in Manchester where his book was first published and then settling near Worcester where this document was sworn by Charles Pidcock in 1853, signed by Joseph Beibitz himself and subsequently ratified with the signatures of Lord Palmerston and Romilly. The blue printed document is extensively accomplished in manuscript and torn along several folds. Beibitz's printed account of the 'history and conversion of the author, and a few remarks on the Jewish religion' is a family copy of the book which passed down to his son, an Anglican clergyman and published theologian. It is in fine condition, bound in textured deep purple cloth with gilt spine lettering, yellow coated end-papers, internally fine and unmarked with a printed list of subscribers at the end of the book mostly from the Worcester and Birmingham area. Henry Stowell of Christ Church, Salford contributes an introduction. This edition is not located by Worldcat which finds only the shorter 1844, Manchester, presumed first edition.
