A. A. (Abraham Aaron) Roback
Published by Sci-Art Publishers, Harvard Square, Cambridge, Massachusetts (1933)
Used Hardcover First Edition Signed Quantity Available: 1
Seller:
Rareeclectic
(Pound ridge, NY, U.S.A.)

Book Description Sci-Art Publishers, Harvard Square, Cambridge, Massachusetts, 1933. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. First Edition (SD). Signed and inscribed by the author on the first front end paper ( 'To R. and M. Rocker(?) With the regards of A.A. Roback'). I found only one other signed copy of this book for sale on the Internet. I've priced my copy dramatically below that one despite the strong condition of this book. You can see the covers in the photographs. They are very clean. The gilt lettering and design on the front is still bright. The gilt on the lettering of the spine is pretty much gone but, as you can see in the second photograph, the lettering is not faded. By contrast, the color of the spine itself is faded from the maroon of the front and back. The condition of the spine is very good. There is just that small crease near the bottom edge. The only other wear I see on the covers is a little crease at the top corner of the rear and a bump/dent off the top edge also of the rear. This bump did not cause a tear. In fact, there are no tears or rub-through to be found anywhere on the covers, not at any of the four corners and not on any of the six edges. A very well-preserved book which is also solidly bound. Moving inward, the pages are very clean. Scrolling through, I didn't see any soiling. There is some age toning at the margins. There is also some spotting/foxing on the inside covers and end papers. You can see some of it in the background of the author's inscription. This spotting/foxing is limited to the inside covers and two end papers, there is none to be found anywhere else. In scrolling through the book, I saw only one thin crease. Interestingly, I found an original printed publisher's slip (partly an errata slip) attached at page 83. It says 'Note: The number of independent Yiddish dailies in the United States is eight, but the Chicago Forverts is often regarded as a ninth newspaper, instead of a local edition. The two words "North America" at the bottom of page 82, should of course read "the United States".' There are a few illustrations in the book. There are no markings. There are no attachments, bookplates, etc. (NOT ex-library). And with the exception of the author's signed inscription, no one has written their name or anything else anywhere in this book. 'A. A. Roback was born in 1890 in Goniondz, Russia (now Poland). His family emigrated to Montreal in 1892, where he attended public schools. He graduated from McGill University in 1912, having studied philosophy with J.W.A. Hickson and experimental psychology with William D. Tait. He studied for a PhD under Hugo Münsterberg at Harvard University, where he later taught for several years. He also taught at the University of Pittsburgh, Northeastern University, Clark University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Roback built a 10,000 volume Yiddish library for Harvard, and in 1929 introduced the first U.S. academic course in Yiddish literature for the Massachusetts University Extension. He died in Cambridge, Massachusetts on June 7, 1965.'. Inscribed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # 001789
