Octavo (18.5 x 13 cm). Rebound in later hand-drawn wrappers that replicate the design of the perished original wrappers; tape along spine; [2], 5-46 pp. Text very good, save for occasional light spotting. A curious nationalist analysis of Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 6, which the author declares to be the most significant work of music to emerge from Russia, far more powerful than anything composed by members of "The Mighty Handful." The author notes that Russian music has been unjustly ignored by Western European critics and sets Tchaikovsky alongside Beethoven in his treatise. Kodzhak (1897-1967) was a Russian emigre writer and philosopher, who fought on the side of the White Army during the Civil War, both in Harbin and Chita. After settling in France in 1922, he returned to Harbin in 1929, before eventually resettling to Australia. The print runs of Russian-language publications under the Japanese-administered Manchukuo state typically ranged from two to three hundred copies.
