Lilien, Half-Naked Herzl -1

Gideon From a stamps-collector's-Forum called Collect brought me Ephraim Moshe Lilien's book Lieder Des Ghetto. The book is from 1902 and it looks old, as you can see in the photo. We see Stars of David and the figure of Herzl in a quite unusual outfit - he is half naked!
Lieder des ghetto in German translates into Songs of the Ghetto. The book was accompanied by poems by an East European Jew named Morris Rosenfeld, who had socialist ideals similar to those of Lilien.
