About this Item

Original Illustrated Wraps. 12mo. 96 pages. 19 cm. First edition. On cover: Y. Bovshover's poezyen. With frontispiece portrait of Bovshover. Poetic Works by Joseph Bovshover, a very early imprint of his poems, published in London by the anarchist Yiddish publisher Frayheyt Group. "Joseph Bovshover (1873-1915) was born in Lubavitch, near Mogilev, White Russia, in a very Orthodox family, but left for America at age 18, and became a furrier in New York. He had a good job but began to write anarchist, revolutionary poems in Yiddish and to read them aloud in his ‘shop. ’ He was fired and worked as a journalist and tutor. He was considered the heir of Edelshtat, who had just died. Bovshover knew English very well and translated his own poetry and published it in English language periodicals. As a result he achieved some fame in the non-Jewish world too, but soon after began to suffer from a mental illness, and entered a mental hospital in 1899, where he remained until his death. His poetry, like Edelshtat's, was anarchist and revolutionary, and became popular throughout the Jewish world. " (U Texas gottesman) Subjects: Yiddish poetry. Yiddish anarchism – Sweatshop Poets. OCLC lists 11 copies. Light edge wear, with minor tear at corner of front wrap, missing back wrap. Otherwise clean. Scarce. Good condition. (YID-19-27). Bookseller Inventory # 31072
