ANTI-SEMITISM—AUSTRIA.
Buchstablich wahr! Die Auswanderung der Wiener Juden nach Amerika. [Vienna]: Leopold Sommer, [1848].
Broadside (416 x 260 mm). Matted. Three horizontal fold creases, some stray light creases, tiny tears to one area of top margin.

This antisemitic broadside celebrates the emigration of Jews from Austria to America: "Perhaps the climate of America will seduce the Jews to do something they have never done before: Work!" The broadside goes on to make an allusion to an earlier, unsuccessful emigration of Jews from Prague.
