The author, began his literary career aged fourteen. He subsequently traveled extensively throughout Europe soliciting aid for his publications especially his work on the Tishbi. The present volume is an account of Koerner’s wanderings, together with vitriolic rebuttals against his detractors. This anonymously penned work highlights the author’s eccentricity wherein he states the reader “will gain much joy and bless the author whose name is stated on page 89” - (it isn’t!)
