“Exposition of Rights.” A response to a Jewish petition requesting permission to reside in Warsaw. The document traces the legal history of occupational and residency rights for Jews in various provinces in Poland and concludes that their presence is deleterious to the Polish economy, therefore wise to ban them from the entire Province of Warsaw. See B.D. Weinryb, The Jews of Poland: A Social and Economic History...1100-1800 (1972) pp.134-141
