About this Item

Large Octavo. 10pp. Original illustrated stapled, multi-colored blue wraps with b/w lettering on covers, protected in modern mylar. The cover features an integrated stamp of the literary magazine Molodaya Gvardiya, founded in 1922 as an organ of the Komsomol, the All-Union Leninist Young Communist League. In the story the boy writes a letter to the Russian children's book author Boris Zhitkov who travels around the world and the letter is following him from Leningrad to Berlin, London, Brazil and back to Leningrad where the addressee finally receives it. Beautifully illustrated with color lithographic prints of drawings by Michael Tsekhanovsky, a Russian animator, accompanying the poem by S. Marshak. A film version was directed by Michael Tsekhanovsky in 1929, as was a wide-screen remake of the film in 1964. Tsekhanovsky, among others, e.g. El Lissitzky, Vladimir Lebedev, Vladimir Tatlin, were included in Evgeny Steiner's examination of the history of "avant-garde-Constructivist children's book illustration in the 1920s." (Jacqueline M. Olich). Text in Russian. Some wear along edges with small chips and back cover corners clipped with a one inch tear at right lower corner of back cover. Light age-toning of block. Wraps in overall good+, interior in very good condition. Samuil Yakovlevich Marshak (1887- 1964) was a Russian and Soviet writer of Jewish decent, translator and children's poet.
