    These are the 1961 End Papers from The Great March, originally written in 1931 by Rosie G. Lurie and illustrated by Todros Geller.  Written for 3rd to 4th graders, the book is a collection of Post-Biblical Jewish stories covering the time from the destruction of the temple to the expulsion from Spain.  It includes Talmudic humor, tales of resistance to injustice and persecution, and profound spiritual lessons.  The book was published by the Union of American Hebrew Congregations and was intended to cultivate "a love for Jewish heroes, for Jewish people, and for Jewish idealism."   Todros Geller (1889-1949) was a Jewish American artist and teacher best known as a master printmaker and a leading artist in the Chicago art community.  The end papers form a continuous image of 28 portraits of historical and literary Jewish men and women in a rectangle beneath two touching apple trees.  Each measures 8.75" high by 6" wide and has been printed in sepia ink on off-white medium weight paper.  These 1961 End Papers from The Great March are in Very Good condition with no damage or wear.  Ideal for use in collage or other art projects.
