Lot 211: TMS in Hebrew, ten pages, 8.5 x 11, January 27, 1958. An exhaustive historical and philosophical treatise tracing the identity and Sitz-im-Leben ["life setting," "situation in life," "sociological setting"] of the Jewish people in exile with many references to Biblical and Rabbinical texts upon which to base a vision for the newly founded modern state of Israel. The piece is intellectual but also emotional and has references to the Law of Return, as it will be the historical basis for this, as well as specific legislation such as the State Education Act. Signed at the conclusion by Ben-Gurion, who also adds several corrections and revisions throughout. In fine condition.
