He was essentially the first mainstream rabbinic writer to focus on history and astronomy rather than Jewish law or theology. The author's translation (from the French) is very readable, the photos obviate the need for a trip to Prague, and the explication of the milieu during which R' Ganz wrote makes the era understandable. After all, R' Ganz was a close student/disciple of the Maharal and of the Remah, whose influences redound today into Orthodox Jewish daily practice.
The more we know of that era and its thinkers, the greater the chance we can optimize our knowledge & practice in our times.
