New York, NY. January 1907. 32 page, Leather hard bound book (Possibly leather bound), 8 by 11 inches with gold lettering on face "In Memoriam - Emanuel Lehman". Full page photograph of Mr. Lehman in front. The book appears in VF condition with intact covers but some minor splitting of the inner binding. The book includes a 2 1/2 page biography of Lehman and then a group of tributes, eulogies, letters of condolence and obituaries remembering and celebrating Mr. Lehman's life. Included were tributes by the New York Cotton Exchange; New York Tribune; Hebrew Orphan Asylum; New Yorker handels=Zeitung in German; Temple Emanu=El; Crippled Children's East Side Free School; Baron de Hirsch Fund; Corn Exchange Bank; Shelby Iron Company; New York and East River Ferry Company; and, many others. Emanuel Lehman was born in Rimpar, Bavaria, February 15, 1827 and died in New York City, January 10, 1907. He started his business career in the U.S. in Montgomery, Alabama when he came over from Germany in 1847 to join his brother Henry Lehman in the firm H.Lehman & Bro. His younger brother Mayer joined the firm in Alabama a few years later and the firm became known as "Lehman Brothers". Emanuel moved to NY in the early 1850's. During the Civil War he moved abroad due to his family ties in the South and then moved back to NY after the war. He devoted a great deal of time to his philanthropic work with many charities and was active on many boards. He died right before the Financial Panic of late 1907 that J.P.Morgan helped resolve and it is ironic that his firm was one of the first of the major financial firms to be allowed to go under in the Financial Panic of 2008 and 2009. Rare and historic Lehman Brothers related item.
