        Poor Cecco

      New York: George H. Doran Company, 1925 - The Rarest of the Limited Edition Rackham BooksLimited to 105 Copies Signed by the Author[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. BIANCO, Margery Williams. Poor Cecco. By Margery Williams Bianco. Author of "The Velveteen Rabbit." Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. New York: George H. Doran Company, [1925].First edition, deluxe large paper issue. One of 105 numbered copies (this being No. 14) signed by Margery Williams Bianco. Quarto (11 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches; 292 x 216 mm.). 175 pp. Seven full-page illustrations in color, mounted on white paper, and twenty-four drawings in black and white. Original parchment-backed light blue paper boards, navy blue lettering label on spine. Pictorial endpapers in pale blue on white. Top edge gilt, others uncut. Slight cracking to upper inner hinge, otherwise, a fine copy. The text, with the same illustrations by Rackham, also appeared in Good Housekeeping beginning in May 1925. No limited English edition was issued, and this title/edition is the rarest of Rackham illustrated books, and extremely scarce."The Velveteen Rabbit or How Toys Become Real was Margery Williams Bianco's first American work, and it remains her most famous. It became an instant classic and has remained so through numerous adaptations in children's theater as well as on radio, television and in the movies. After becoming a renowned author, Bianco wrote numerous other children's books, with her son becoming the namesake of one of them, 1925's Poor Cecco: The Wonderful Story of a Wonderful Wooden Dog Who Was the Jolliest Toy in the House Until He Went Out to Explore the World-a distinguished book that belies its somewhat priggish subtitle and is arguably better entitled than The Velveteen Rabbit to status as a classic. This lively adventure story, virtually a novel for children, is a brilliant exception to the sentimentality of Bianco's more famous book. Each of the many characters who populate the nursery toy cupboard is a distinct and amusing personality. Their interactions with each other and with the human, animal, and toy members of the world beyond it, whom they encounter on their quest for adventure/search for a lost friend, are delineated with understated humor. The relationship between the wooden dog Cecco, a natural leader, and Jensina, a highly independent and spirited wooden doll, is both subtle and funny. Superb illustrations by Arthur Rackham are a perfect complement to the narrative. While the publisher probably found it more practical to promote the shorter Velveteen Rabbit, Cecco's celebrated illustrator may have assured its survival in the catalogues of rare book dealers despite its undeserved literary obscurity. A return to more sober themes marks Bianco's other popular works, such as the same year's The Little Wooden Doll, illustrated by her daughter Pamela, in which the title character is badly mistreated by some children, but shown love and compassion by another child, which made her whole again."

        The Russian Economic Review].

      Plamya Prague -1928 1925 - Issues No1 - 12, all published, octavo (24 x 17 cm), with portrait of Alexander Chuprov and tables. Publishers wrappers, unopened. Complete set in exceptionally fresh condition of this rare émigré periodical revealing the economic reality behind the well polished propagated data of the early Soviet Union. Its editor Sergey Prokopovich (1871, Tsarskoe Selo – 1955, Geneva) was a Russian economist, sociologist and liberal politician. With the same enthusiasm that he welcomed the February Revolution of 1917, he subsequently opposed the October Revolution, which overthrew the provisional government where he held several ministerial portfolios. In 1922 he was expelled from the Soviet Union for his anti-revolutionary activities and work with American and Western European aid agencies. In emigration in Berlin Prokopovich initiated establishment of the Economics Cabinet [????????????? ???????], a research institute based in Czechoslovakia that united Russian émigré economic and social scientists. Among them were economists P. Struve, M. Bernatskiy, A. Chuprov and B. Brutskus; historians A. Kizevetter, E. Shmurlo and B. Nikolskiy; jurists N. Timashev and L. Petrazhitskiy. With financial support from the Czechoslovakian government, the Economic Cabinet was publishing several periodicals, including the Russkii ekonomicheskii sbornik (Russian Economic Review) offered here. Its articles contain analysis of the levels of harvests and production in the Soviet Union, legal aspects of the nationalisation policy, a role of private capital, national and international trade, emigration, and Russian Diaspora in France and South America . In this periodical great minds used the official Soviet data combined with their own firsthand knowledge of the Russian economic system to analyse the real state of the economy and impact of the so-called New Economic Policy [???]. This capitalism-oriented economic policy was introduced by Lenin in 1922 after the Russian Civil War, and was aimed at fostering the economy of the country, which was in ruins. This system of mixed economy, which permitted private individuals to own small enterprises and encouraged foreign investments while keeping banks, foreign trade, and large industries under the state control was abolished by Josef Stalin in 1928. Conclusions made on the pages of the Russkii ekonomicheskii sbornik were in many ways different from the picture painted by the official Soviet Union, and their accurateness became obvious only after the collapse of the Soviet state many decades later. Very rare, especially when complete. Not in the holdings of the Russian National or State Libraries. No complete sets on the market; no auction records in the recent decades. Not in Savin.
