About this Item

Ex-library. Large quarto. Unpaginated. (46pp.) Color illustrated paper boards expertly rebacked in blue cloth. Abraham Reisen [1876-1953] was a prolific poet and Yiddishist. He is to Yiddish poetry what Eliot is to English poetry. Reisen was a founder of Yiddish literature akin to Mendele, Peretz and Sholem Aleichem all of whom knew him from his earliest efforts. As a founding father of Yiddishism his contemporaries were Chaim Zhitlovsky, Y.L. Peretz, and his close friends Shalom Asch and H.D. Nomberg. In 1891, at age 15, Y.L. Peretz introduced Abraham as an author and encouraged him to continue his work. Later, Abraham created the concept of "Yiddishland," and in the U.S. was a major contributor to the early New York Yiddish newspapers such as the Forverts, also called "The Jewish Daily Forward," Tog, or "The Day" and Frayhayt, or "Freedom." From 1929 on he wrote exclusively for Forverts composing a story per week. Reisen was a relative to Leon Bakst on his grandmother's side of the family, as well as Eliyohu Khayim Meisel, the Great Rabbi of Lodz, and Nicolai and Osip Bakst. All of Abraham's siblings were literary. His brother Zalman was one of three founders of the S. Ansky Jewish Historical and Ethnographic Society and of the Yiddish Scientific Institute, the predecessor of the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research. Illustrated throughout with color reproductions of sketches depicting Yiddish life of Reisen's time. Head and tail of spine very slightly chipped. Age toning to outer boards. Edges worn. Closed tear on rear board. Color illustration on front board in good condition. Exterior fine, interior good +. As is. Bookseller Inventory # 24475
