        Knizhka Pro Knigi (Book About Books)

      Raduga, Moscow & Leningrad 1925 - Spine neatly restored; library stamp on title page effaced. Still an extremely nice copy of a very fragile piece. Black and white illustrations by Sergei Chekhonin for a tale of two horrid little boys, Mishka and Grishka, who mistreat their books, which flee to the public library where they are repaired and put to bed to heal. When one of the boys visits the library, he is confronted by the enraged Catalogue. The books include Grimm's Fairy Tales, Robinson Crusoe, Uncle Tom's Cabin, Don Qluixote, Chukovsky's Giant Cockroach and Marshak's own Detki v Kletke. Scarce first edition; copies only at Princeton and Miami University. Although World Cat lists 121 holdings, ten are a later book with the same title illustrated by Dmitri Mitrokhin.

        THE LOST WORLD

      New York: A.L. Burt Company, Publishers, n.d. [circa 1925]. Later edition. A near fine copy in a near fine dust jacket, minor loss to corners, small closed tear to upper front panel, rubbing to flap fold, spine panel slightly age darkened, internal cello-tape re-enforcement to spine ends. A bright attractive copy of this title, uncommon in this condition. (10110). Octavo, cloth. Photoplay edition issued with the release of the 1925 First National film directed by Harry Hoyt and starring Wallace Beery, it has four stills from the motion picture. Interestingly this film is the first use of stop motion animation and features the work of animator Willis O'Brien who in 1933 would create King Kong. Another important note is that this film version of the Lost World was a 'lost' film. In a contractual agreement, all know prints (positive and negative) were destroyed in 1929. A truncated 16mm print was what remained until the 1990s when a nearly full length print was discovered in the film archives of the Czech Republic. Today two restored versions exist, one available on DVD, nearly complete and a third longer than any version up to this time with 30 minutes of footage replaced, the other restoration is the property of Eastman Kodak (information from an article at dvdjournal.com).

        [CIVIL WAR THROUGH CHILDREN'S EYES] Detskaia knizhka o svoiom: Kniga o sovetskoi detskoi zhizni napisannaia samimi det'mi [i.e. Children's Book About Themselves: A Book About Children's Life Written by Children]

      Moscow: GMPT, 1925. 140, [3] pp., [2] maps. 17x13,5 cm. In original illustrated wrappers. Near fine, slightly soiled. Very rare. This edition was compiled from stories written by children about themselves and their lives (slightly edited by the compiler). Most of these children were from orphanages. The compiler doesn't give children's names with one exception - a son of the famous Bolshevik Podvoisky (in his story he described his trip to Germany with his father). In 1920s there was an increased interest in childhood, education, various experiments in this field. Lev Vygotsky (1896-1934) and pedology (soon to be banned) were at the top at that point. On the other hand there was a definite need of a new system as the society broke free from the old world including way of raising children. Children of October were of a real interest as they were a complete new generation of a new value system and ideology. One more possible reason for such interest to children's art in 1920s is that Russian avant-garde understood children's literary creativity as self-valuable and equal to adult's. This book is an amazing evidence of the time and everything of the above. It was made when the fight with illiteracy was just in the beginning. But all these stories here were told, and everything verbal became important at that point. These are the real stories of real children survived during Civil War. Horrible stories are put into non heroic context. It's a possibility that the idea of this compilation was to see how this childhood trauma affected these children (there was a clear interest to freudism and psychology as well). And maybe to look at this terrible context with such absolutely unbiased, not politicized eyes of children. Very soon these stories will be told only in propaganda manner.
