    Book for children with Marc Chagall illustrations, published by Vilner Farlag B.A. Kletzin, Petrograd, 1917.  Size is 4.5 x 6.1 inches. Chagall´s first Yiddish book and his only illustrated children´s book. The drawings of Shtetl life are in the faux-naif style of other works by the artist at this time, which combine modernist elements with traditional Jewish iconography. The two tales in verse were composed by Pinkus Kahanovich (1884-1950), also known as "Der Nister".  Kahanovich was a major Yiddish author, philosopher, translator and critic. When Stalin unleashed the last pogrom to finally destroy the remaining Jewish culture in the USSR, Kahanovich was arrested and died in the Gulag in 1947. There is one copy of this book in the MoMA and one at the University of Texas.  A very good copy of this very rare book, no deaccession stamps but original publisher´s price stamp on rear cover.

    Published by Giz, 1928, Moscow-Leningrad. Full title is "How Kol´ka Pankin Flew to Brazil, and Piotka Ershov didn´t believe anything. Size is 5.1 x 6.8 inches, in very good condition. This is a delightful children´s book, but one that triggered the Soviet authorities´ suspicion of it being a parody of the Marxist dialectic and hidden political tract. The story involves two little boys in banter between the ideal and the real, mirroring much of the early days of the Revolution between communist ideologies. The authorities may have also been offended with the parrots on the front cover and monkeys on the rear, possibly reading more than the author intended, but the date was on the cusp of deepening suppression and conformity to party doctrine which jelled in 1930, when Kharms was arrested for sedition and his work banned for the first time, and he was exiled.  The illustrator Evgeniia Konstatinovna Evenbakh (1889-1981) was an important children´s book artist who studied under V.V. Lebedev and initially employed Constructivist techniques in her work. The present work is considered to be her finest. OCLC locates only one institutional holding, in Princeton.

    Published in Leningrad by Giz, 1930. Original color lithographed wrappers, 12 pages, illustrated by Vladimir Mikhailovich Kosnashevich. A rare children´s book by the great Russian absurdist poet and playwright Daniil Kharms (1905-1942). With the banning of this adult work and that of other members of the avant-garde group Oberiu (Association for Real Art), Kharms (born Daniil Luvachev) and other members of the group turned to children´s books as a refuge for work and a means to channel their creative imaginations.  Igra is one of Kharms´ most child-friendly poems. Here, three little boys run around their town, pretending to be modern forms of transportation: Petka is an automobile, Vasa a boat, and Mishka, a Soviet airplane.  V. M. Kosnashevich proved that he was a master in drawing the body language of children in his loose, spirited line drawings for this work. Kharms soon fell out with the Soviet authorities, was initially exiled and later charged with treason. He died in the psychiatric ward of the Leningrad Prison. OCLC locates 4 holdings of this book worldwide (Columbia, Princeton, Amherst and Univ. of Chicago).

    Original children´s book by Boris Pasternak (1890-1960) with illustrations by Nikolai Kupreyanov (1894-1933), published in Moscow, 1929, 16 pages, original color lithographed wrappers, 7 x 8.5 inches. Very rare children´s book by the author of "Doctor Zhivago", long before he wrote his Nobel Prize winning novel. Pasternak was already known as one of Russia´s greatest poets, and wrote only 2 books for children, both after the birth of his first child. "Zverinets" is a long and little-known poem about the animals of the zoo. Although poet Marina Tsvetaeva called it "a brilliant bestiary", the book was not successful and Pasternak admitted that he really couldn´t write for children. Nikolai Nikolaevich Kupreyanov was an important Soviet graphic artist whose short career came to a sudden tragic end when he drowned in a river near Moscow in 1933. Very rare!
