Lidová knihtiskárna Ant. Machát a spol, Vienna 1930 - Small quartos (ca. 25 × 19.5 cm each, last four issues 24 × 16 cm). Original decorative wrappers with an attractive understated typographic design that varies slightly through the years; ca. 24 pp. each. Advertisements. Very good condition throughout; occasional light wear to overlapping wrapper edges. Set of four complete yearly runs, as well as one special jubilee issue, of this undocumented Czech-language journal of the interwar Czech student community in Vienna, billed as the only independent Czech journal in Vienna. "Náraz" contains articles on the cultural and political interests of the Czech minority in Austria, reflections on student life and the life of the young generation in Vienna, as well as overviews of Czech modernist art and literature, and even occasional original poetry and prose. Some of the contributions also concern contemporary philosophy, such as the conflict between pragmatism and idealism. Of particular interest are the literary articles by Alexandr Hlin ný on Vitezslav Nezval's prose and on modernist Czech poetry. The authors of original poetry included in "Naraz" are Ji í Janou?ek, Václav Hrubý, K. J. Kraus, Alois Hoffmann, Jan Ho ký, Pavel Stránský, Miroslav Bidlas, and Maria Franzlová. The wrappers are illustrated with an appealing typographic design (unattributed) and each issue contains numerous advertisements of Czech businesses in Vienna, often set in appealing typography. Genuinely rare; not even held at the Czech National Library, KVK, OCLC only shows a single issue at Universitätsbibliothek Wien. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
