Ben-Gurion’s Histadrut membership register, unsigned, 3.25 x 4.75, 64 pages, dated 1 Tevet 5689 [December 14, 1928]. The first page of the booklet is filled out in another hand using Hebrew block letters, denoting his personal information, including: age, “42”; parents’ names, “Avigdor” and “Scheindel”; profession, “Journalist”; association, “office worker”; and date of entry to the Histadrut, “Since day of founding.” The reverse of this page bears a non-original affixed matte-finish 1.25 x 1.75 passport-type photo, and again is filled out in another hand and has a date of 4 Nisan 5685 [March 29, 1925], indicating that he received his worker’s permit over three years before this Histadrut membership register was issued. This page is stamped at the bottom using Ben-Gurion’s facsimile signature stamp. In very good condition, with moderate scattered creases, toning, and soiling, tears and creases to the front cover, a tear to the first page now covered by the replaced photo, and general wear throughout.
