No jacket, bookplate on half-title page. 1951 Hard Cover. xviii, 357 pp. This is a collection of tales of the Eastern European Hassidic Jews, centering on the holy men Baal Shem Tov and Rabbi Nachman of Bratzlaw. The territory and narrative elements belong to the familiar world of folk tales. However, these magical realist stories of the Hassidic rabbis are encoded with deeper levels of meaning similar to Buddhist, Sufi, Celtic, and other spiritual traditions. Lovingly recounted by master story-teller Meyer Levin, this glimpse of a now long-gone world is a wonderful anthology which can be enjoyed by all.
