Book Description: StPetersburg, M. G. Kornfel'd, 1911. 12mo, pp. 62, [2]; slightly browned, edges thumbed, but a good copy, uncut in the original blue printed paper wrappers, worn.Very rare first edition in Russian of three humorous stories by the 'Jewish Mark Twain', the Ukrainian-born author and playwright Sholem Aleichem, now probably best remembered through the musical based on his stories, Fiddler on the Roof. The Yiddish originals were 'An eytse' (1904), 'Der Daytsh' (1902), and a shorter piece we have been unable to identify; this would appear to be their first appearance in book form. They are published here as No. 10 in a series linked to the magazine Satirikon, the major Russian satirical magazine of the period – other contributors in the series included Teffi (Nadezhda Buchinskaia) and Arkady Averchenko. Aleichem had left Russia to avoid the pogroms and settled in New York in 1905, though he returned to the country on a series of lecture tours. His main language of composition was Yiddish and he championed its use as a literary language, though he also wrote in Hebrew and Russian. In 1904 he was editor of the anthology Hilf ('Help'), published to aid victims of the Khisinev pogrom, and translated several stories by Tolstoy for the book.Not in OCLC or COPAC. There is a copy at the National Library of Russia. Bookseller Inventory # F1769

Book Description: Keren Kajemeth Lejisrael, Prague, 1925. Book Condition: Very Good. Digest sized, in gray wrappers printed in black and gold. Paper loss to the spine ends; half an inch at the crown and 1.5 inches at the base with some attendant tearing and creasing, though wrappers are still very firmly attached. Covers with a few very shallw chips and some diagonal creasing. Bookplate of the Jewish Cultural Reconstruction on the inside of the front wrapper, with two small ink stamps in Hebrew on the preliminary pages. Text edges browned with a little softening to corner tips, though internally clean. About Very Good, with the binding sound and all pages intact. The JÜDISCHER ALMANACH was a yearbook of sorts printed in German and Hebrew, published for the Zionist community in Prague. Circulation would have been small, given that the majority of Jews in Prague at that time period would have been fully assimilated. The ALMANACH contains a variety of information relevant to orthodox Jewish life: tables documenting feast days and those for fasting, details concerning the population of Jews in various European cities, charts chronicling the feast days, fast days, and high holy days throughout the year, a chart detailing how many bar mitzvah's took place, and 14 pages of advertisments for Jewish businesses. There are several pages with black and white photos of Palestine, Tel Aviv, Jaffa, and other cities within the Holy Land. The majority of the ALMANACH is dedicated to a variety of essays, fiction, and notable events which took place in Jewish communities around the world. Notably, it contains a short piece by Franz Kafka entitled "Tagebuchnotizen über ein jüdisches Theaterensemble," a diary entry concerning an experience he had with a Jewish theater troop, published just one year after his death. Also contains a 12 page piece entitled "Rëubeni und Molcho" by Kafka's friend and literary executor Max Brod, a chapter excerpt from his (then) forthcoming novel, as well as a short piece entitled "Pech" (Misfortune) by Sholem Aleichem. Rare; OCLC locates a single copy in the Czech Republic's National Library. While it is certainly an obscure and interesting Kafka item, more importantly, it is an incredible social document about orthodox Jewish life prior to the war years, as well as the Zionist community in Prague and the surrounding regions. Given its fragility and the fact that it survived the horror of the war years, we find it nothing short of miraculous. Bookseller Inventory # 417

Book Description: Folksfond Ojsgabe, New York, 1927. Hardcover. Book Condition: vg. Complete set of 28 books bound in 14 volumes. Green cloth with blind-stamped lettering on the cover and gold lettering and decoration on the spine. Complete works of the Yiddish novelist Sholem Aleichem (Solomon Naumovich Rabinovich) whose work depicts Jewish life in the Eastern European shtetl. Aleichem is best known for his character Tevye the Milkman, which formed the inspiration for the musical Fiddler on the Roof. Other characters he created were Mottel the Cantor's Son and Yossele Solovey. Aleichem's stories are a mixture of comedy and tragedy. His characters face unbelievable poverty, persecution and turns of just plain bad luck, mazal, with an optimism that strikes the reader as somewhere between heroic and farcical. Text in Yiddish. Several volumes contain wear to corners and heads and tails of spine. Overall in very good condition. Bookseller Inventory # 31573

Book Description: Sholem Aleykhem Fol sfond oysgabe, 1917-1923, Nyu Yor :, 1917. 25 volumes 21 cm. 25 volumes of the complete works of Olga Rabinowitz (Sholem-Aleichem). It is our guess that these volumes are first printings from the first edition of this set published in the years 1917-1923. It is also our understanding that a complete set should be 28 volumes. Given that this set is in Yiddish and that we are not familiar with even the Hebrew alphabet, we offer this set as-is as to collation. As far as we can tell there are no duplicates. 24 of the volumes (the brown and the red cloth bindings with the bright gilt) appear to have publishing dates between 1917-1923 and are either in Fine condition (the majority) or Very Good+ condition. The odd single volume pictured has what appears to be a 1937 printing date and is more worn (VG-). A number of the volumes have finely reproduced gravure frontispieces. A scarce (almost complete) set of the Yiddish master's work. Please get in touch with any questions. Bookseller Inventory # 002451

Book Description: New York: Farlag Kinder Ring, 1947. Paperback. (FT) Paper wrappers, 8vo. , 46 pages. Scarce. Reprinting of the 1939 edition. Published by the educational committee of the Workmen’s Circle. A dark and powerful story about a child who steals a pen knife. Sholem Aleichem’s original story, published in 1900, is considered by some to be the first modern children’s story in Yiddish, but was actually intended for adults. The children’s version published by the Workmen’s Circle was adapted and edited to be suitable for children. Illustrations by Note Kozlovski, who illustrated many children’s books in Yiddish at that time. Printed in large latters, with vocabulary words for Yiddish learners. Only one copy listed on OCLC (BAYERISCHE STAATSBIBLIOTHEK, Germany) . Very good condition. KAZDAN 234. (YIDCHI-4-3). Bookseller Inventory # 28990
