EXTREMELY RARE pre-war Jewish children`s book printed in 1930 Vienna. The book consists of several short stories written by Abeles, a Jewish educator who promoted the development and use of Hebrew and Yiddish braille script, and later contributed to efforts of evacuating Jews from the Third Reich. He committed suicide in 1937 when he ran out of money to assist in those efforts. The stories are interspersed with illustrations by Henny Friedek.
