By Ulfilas on August 10, 2011
My copy, which was given to me between 1970 and 1971, looks exactly like the one shown here--right down to the red cover and gold letters--and published by Black's Readers Service Company. This book is 606 pages long and includes about 150 stories. Some of the stories are wonderful, such as "The Venus of Braniza" (pp.236-238) in which the beautiful wife of a Talmudic scholar takes it upon herself to comically speed the coming of the Messiah. Others, like "The Story of a Farm Girl" (pp.38-50) are depressing without being edifying or illuminating. All the same, this book makes for good reading for those occassions where you just have a spare moment.
