About this Item

Small folio. Unpaginated (21pp). Original beige boards. Illustrated with fifteen b/w reproductions of sketches. Illustrated frontispiece. Yiddish art depicting scenes from Jewish life based on "Motl the Cantor's Son," Sholem Aleichem's unfinished novel. The painter Rachel Szalit-Marcus created these astounding lithographs as to illustrate Sholem Aleichem's literary work. Szallit-Marcus (1894-1942) grew up in Lodz and was sent by her parents to Munich in 1911 to study at the Art Academy. She moved to Berlin in 1916 and became a member of the November group, a circle of young avantgarde artists. When Hitler came to power in 1933, Szalit-Marcus emigrated to France, but was imprisoned and murdered in concentration camp in 1942. She painted still-lifes, portraits and illustrated books by authors like Mendele Moikher Sforim, Heinrich Heine and Martin Buber. Includes an essay written by the Yiddish literary critic Israel Isidor Elyashev (Baal-Machshoves). Baal-Makshoves, (1873-1924) grew up with a traditional Jewish education at the Courland Yeshiva and with an additional modern curriculum in mathematics, geography and German. After finishing High school in Switzerland, he studied medicine in Berlin and Heidelberg. Baal-Makhshoves practiced in Latvian cities, like Riga and Vilna, but also in the Polish city Warsaw. He began to write in Russian and German in 1896 and published his first piece in Yiddish in 1901. Besides his main interest in belles lettres, he translated German authors like Theodor Herzl, Yiddish writers like David Bergelson and Russian novelists like Ivan Turgenyew. Well-known as a pioneer for the recognition of both Yiddish and Hebrew as Jewish national languages, but less know is his own work "Ironic Tales". Age-wear to front and back boards.
