Great for Genealogists and Economists,
This review is from: The Memoirs of Gluckel of Hameln (Paperback)
This is an extremely entertaining, readable translation of Gluckel's diaries. It is full of general descriptions of her relatives' businesses, and detailed information about the workings of her own family's jewelry trading business. Anyone who is interested in early modern European economic history or Ashkenazic Jewish history or genealogy should own this book.
