Re: Book search: Avram Benaroya

Dear Professor Schorsch,

I do not own a copy of the book but I found it at the SS. Cyril and Methodius National Library of Bulgaria. Here is the link to the book you are looking for: http://www.theeuropeanlibrary.org/tel4/record/3000047181945?query=Еврейският+въпрос+и+социалната+демокрация
The book's national bibliography number-NBN is "БКГ1878-1944 - 2612."
I hope this helps a bit.

Book search: Avram Benaroya

Dear Colleagues,

I am trying to obtain a copy of a book in Bulgarian by the prominent early socialist Avram Benaroy [Benaroya]: Evreiskiyat Vipros y sotsialnata demokratsiya (The Jewish Question and Social Democracy) (Plovdiv, 1908).  Worldcat does not even list this text.  Has anyone seen this book or might have a copy?

Thanks in advance for your help.
