Book Listing Inter-married British Aristocracy Withdrawn in London

Download PDF for this date

A book, “Tales of the Aristocracy,” has been withdrawn on the eve of its publication because it reveals the Jewish antecedents of a number of members of the British nobility, the London press reported today.

The author of the volume on Britain’s aristocracy is L. G. Pine, an acknowledged authority on the peerage. The report in the press says that book gives the names of 14 Jewish peers who have made no secret of their faith. The reason for the withdrawal is that the volume reveals Christian-Jewish alliances among Britain noble families.
