About this Item

1st Yiddish edition. Original illustrated paper wrappers with photo of Kropotkin, 12mo, 5, 334 pages, 19cm. In Yiddish. Not in Zaleski; not in Stammhammer; not in L'Anarchisme. Catalogue de Livres et Brochures des XIXe et XXe Siècles; not in Nettlau. Rare first Yiddish edition: Nettlau lists many translations of The Conquest of Bread but does not know this Yiddish translation. Published in London during Kropotkin's exile in England, the translation was done by Abraham Frumkin and Moshe Katz, both active in the Yiddish anarchist movement in the US and England. "The whole theory of anarchist communism is developed particularly in The Conquest of Bread, which was published in Paris as late as 1892, though the articles that composed it had been written during the preceding decade . He [Kropotkin] was its great apostle and popularizer, but it is doubtful if he was the actual inventor. The feature that distinguishes anarchist communism from other libertarian doctrines is the idea of free distribution, which is older than anarchism itself" (G. Woodcock, Anarchism, p. 188) . Abraham Frumkin (1872-1946) , the son of Israel Dov Frumkin, was a leading Jewish anarchist. When he moved from Constantinople (Istanbul) to London in 1896, he became a friend of Rudolf Rocker, and they opened a Yiddish Anarchist printing house together in London that year. (Frumkin, "From The Spring Period of Jewish Socialism") . SUBJECT(S) : Anarchism. OCLC lists 17 copies worldwide. Heavy wear to wrappers but still attractive, spine rebacked, Jewish library stamps on title and 2 other pages. Period Lower East Side Jewish bookseller stamp on rear cover. Good- Condition. Important. (yid-23-4) Yid3, yidleft2, brit1. Bookseller Inventory # 36407
