Scarce collection of original tales for German Jewish schoolchildren. Schwab (1879-1962), a prolific journalist and historian of German Judaism, emigrated to London in 1934 and remained there until his death. The current work, his first, was reprinted in 1945 and translated into many languages; the first edition is uncommon, OCLC noting but ten copies worldwide, of which five in North America (all misdated 1900).
