An invaluable source of information concerning the Jews of North Africa, the Near and Far East, especially India and China. On the penultimate page we find a “List of Subscribers in Bombay,” namely various members of the affluent Sassoon clan. The self-styled “Benjamin II” (after the medieval globe-trotter Benjamin of Tudela), was a native of Foltischeny, Moldavia. He died in London in abject poverty while making preparations for a second journey to the Orient. See EJ, Vol. IV, cols. 526-7.
