Borodine, four pages, 8vo, St. Petersburg, 1st March 186[3], to an unidentified chemist [Paolo Tassinari?], in Italian. Borodin writes at length about his scientific career, stating ´My dear friend, having had no news from you, I finally write to you wanting to know how you are and how your affairs are progressing. I will first of all inform you in a few words about what I have done these last months. Having been appointed to the post of assistant professor at the Medical Academy, I had to abandon my medical post at the Military Hospital, where I was working very little but was well paid.´ Borodin continues by referring to his needs of finding additional work and income, which is always hard and takes time, `Having lost any hope in finding a convenient post, I sent to hell all teaching options. Therefore I needed the desired post itself to come and look for me. And guess what, the post came to me as a fact: not long ago, I received a proposal of a teaching contract at a Farming Academy College (for more than 7000 francs per year) What a beautiful thing!´ Borodin later describes his plans of becoming the future director of the chemical laboratory at the Medical Academy which is currently under construction, a luxurious and comfortable building where there will be 104 people working with the most advanced facilities, including gas, water and a small steam machine, also adding ´I will have an apartment at the laboratory itself, and will be able to work when I will want and as much as I want...´. Borodin also refers to the difficult working conditions and bureaucracy, concluding by sending regards from Caterina and enquiring ´Tell me who has been the one who so kindly sent my work to the Academy in Paris. I need to know in order to send him all my thanks´. Some extensive light overall age toning, some considerable show through of ink and several minor holes in the text caused by oxidation. A small, neat professional repair to the foot of the central fold. About G.

Later, he joined the British police and was appointed the officer of Jerusalem. He also worked as private investigator. He was close to Rabbi Kook and helped him in various matters.

The first book composed by Tidhar, which details the 'sins' of several of Israel's residents in those days in his eyes as a police officer. The book uniquely reveals the 'other side' of life in the Land of Israel - beginning with cases of intoxication and theft and ending with cases of embezzlement and murder. The book received a greeting letter from Rabbi Kook: "My best regards to you for your clever book. May we soon see the book 'Righteous and Righteousness in the Land of Israel'". Tidhar included a copy of this letter in his book 'In Uniform and Without Uniform'. First edition. Singular in this format. 177 pp. 40 pictures. Condition: Very good. Missing its cover. 2. Bein Ha'Patish La'Sadan (Between a Rock and a Hard Place) with the author's dedication.

The book is written from the perspective of a Jewish police officer and deals with the Arabs in Israel, the Balfour Declaration, and the right for Jewish defense. With the author's portrait. The book is dedicated by the author to his friend Yisrael Weiss, 9.8.1937. Yisrael Weiss (born in 1912), a member of 'Ha'Poel Ha'Mizrachi' served as the manager of the Jewish Agency in Belgium and the manager of the United Jewish Appeal in Brussels and Luxemburg.
