Also the brochure includes articles on music in Revizor production and article titled «Spectator from the Red Army about Revizor at Meyerhold's». Vsevolod Meyerhold (1874-1940) was a Russian theatrical producer, director, and actor whose provocative experiments in nonrealistic theatre made him one of the productive forces in modern theatre. Meyerhold founded his own theatre in 1920, which was known from 1923 as the Meyerhold Theatre until 1938. He inspired revolutionary artists and filmmakers such as Sergei Eisenstein, who studied with him. In the early 1930s, when Joseph Stalin repressed all avant-garde art and experimentation, his works were proclaimed antagonistic and alien to the Soviet people. Before his death he was tortured and executed by the state (cleared of all charges in 1955). Worldcat locates copies in Harvard, Columbia, UCLA.

About the author: Max van Berchem (1863-1921) was a Swiss epigraphist and historian. Best known as a pioneer of Arabic epigraphy, he created "Corpus Inscriptionum Arabicarum," an impressive collection of Arabic inscriptions gathered during his scientific expeditions to Egypt, Jerusalem, Palestine, and Syria. Being aware of the enormity of this project, he divided the work amongst others, mostly French and German scholars, with Berchem, for the most part, limiting his personal investigations to the cities of Cairo, Jerusalem and Damascus. In his work, he used photography as a means to record Arabic inscriptions. Between 1895 and 1914, he dedicated most of his time and energy towards the publication of the large amount of textual material that he had accumulated. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

A remarkable collection of elegant theatrical costume designs signed by leading French Art Deco designer George Barbier (1882-1932) and a portrait frontispiece of Barbier by his friend and rival Charles Martin. Although primarily a book illustrator, Barbier applied his considerable skill to fabric design, posters, jewellery, wallpapers and commercial wrappings. He rose to prominence on the Parisian scene after his first exhibition of 1911 and worked under the creative direction of Diaghilev for the Ballets Russes, issuing a portfolio of designs for Nijinsky in 1913. The designs featured in Vingt-Cinq Costumes pour le Theatre show Barbier at the height of his artistic career. Quarto, portrait frontispiece, edition limited to 260 copies, 24 page introduction with 25 pochoir colour plates, each signed by the artist and mounted on tinted grey Arches paper; bound in original polished half-calf with black lettering, a fine and elegant copy.

        Kak Rubanok Sdelal Rubanok : Skazka [How a Plane Made a Plane : A Fairy Tale]

      Leningrad: Raduga, 1927. Lebedev, Vladimir Vasil'evich. Small quarto. (12)pp. Bright color illustrations throughout. A rhyming Russian story for children, in which a worn-out old carpenter's plane makes a new plane, his "grandson," to carry on his work.

A collaborative work by writer, translator, and poet Samuil Marshak, and painter and graphic artist Vladimir Lebedev. The pair worked together frequently, and were important in the development of children's literature in Russia. In the 1920's, Lebedev became known as "King of the Children's Book," and Maxim Gorky said of Marshak that he was "the founder of Russia's (Soviet) children's literature." Marshak published under Raduga (Rainbow) from 1922 to 1930, while he worked in Leningrad as the head of the Children's Literature Studio. Stapled into self-wrappers, showing some wear at the spine and light staining. Near fine.
