Book Description New York: Coward-McCann, Inc., 1930, 1930. Octavo. Original orange cloth, titles to spine and front cover in blue. With the dust jacket. Spine very gently rolled, an excellent bright copy in the jacket with lightly browned spine, nicks to extremities, creasing to spine joints, foxing to top edge. Title page printed in pink and black, fully illustrated by Gropper without text. First edition, first printing. This wordless novel, telling the story of three circus performers solely in woodcuts, is one of the key North American examples of the genre. Following the Second World War, US censors suppressed books with socialist views such as Gropper's; throughout the 1920s he worked for a number of socialist magazines and in 1927 had travelled to the USSR in celebration of the tenth anniversary of the Russian Revolution. This work is uncommon, especially in the jacket. Seller Inventory # 118349
