Gans David

Gans David, a Jewish historian, was born about the middle of the 16th century. He is considered by Jost to be an untrustworthy writer. Among his best works are Zersnach David, or The Branch of David, in two parts; of which the first is a chronicle of sacred and Jewish history from the Creation to 1592; the second recounts some of the events of secular history (Prague, 1592; Furth, 1784). He died in Prague in 1613. — Grasse, Allgem. Litearigeschichte, 5, § 311; Jost, Geschichte d. Judenthums, 3:215; Etheridge, Introd. to Heb. Lit. page 444. (J.H.W.)
