        [FROM AVANT-GARDE TO REALISTIC THEATRE] Teatr i dramaturgiya: Ezhemesiachnyi obshchestvenno-politicheskii i khudozhestvennyi zhurnal teatra i dramaturgii [i.e. Theatre and Dramaturgy: Monthly Political and Art Magazine on Theatre and Drama]

      Moscow, 1934. Full set of 1934. #1-11/12. 29,5x21 cm. In publisher's cloth with silver colored stamping (title and year). Publisher's wrappers of all issues are preserved in the binding. Very good. Spine is rubbed, with a few small tears of the extremities (#2), rare owner's markings in the text. Each issue of 5000 copies. Richly illustrated with photographs, color plates, illustrations, set designs, etc. In the beginning of 1930s Soviet theatre moved into a new era. All experimental studios and theaters were gradually closing and only one style - Soviet realism - remained and became the official one. The growth of the audience led to necessity of creating new 'popular' theatrical magazine. 'Theatre and Dramaturgy' was a Soviet illustrated monthly magazine, printed as 'Soviet Theatre' from 1930 till 1933, as 'Theatre and Dramaturgy' from 1933 till 1936 and 'Theatre' from 1937. The magazine was supposed to form views of readers and be a trendsetter in this area for the whole Soviet Union as it was the time of building Soviet ideology. The magazine was not meant only for professionals, moreover its unusual design and a lot of illustrations were more appealing to a general public. But among all important materials coming from rulers of the state and party, 'Theatre and Dramaturgy' was providing points of view in the beginning, like some of the current issues include reviews and photos of Meyerhold's experimental works in his theatre. Only later the magazine will execute political order of the party, like criticizing same Meyerhold whose theatre and life ended during Stalin terror.

        Good-bye, Mr. Chips

      Little, Brown, Boston 1934 - First edition, preceding the English edition by six months. Modest offsetting to the front endpapers from a clipping, thus near fine in an exceptionally bright, just about fine dustwrapper. Basis for two films: the 1939 Sam Wood-directed version with Robert Donat (who beat out Clark Gable, Henry Fonda and others for the Best Actor Oscar), Greer Garson, and Paul Henreid, and the 1969 remake directed by Herbert Ross with Peter O'Toole, Petula Clark, and Michael Redgrave. A very nice copy of the true first, American edition, which is much less common than the English edition. As nice a copy as we have seen. [Attributes: First Edition]

        [YEAR OF 1932: THE END OF RUSSIAN AVANT-GARDE] Khudozhniki RSFSR za XV let (1917-1933): Zhivopis', skul'ptura, plakat, karrikatura, grafika. Katalog vystavki: Grafika [i.e. Artists of RSFSR for 15 years (1917-1933): Painting, Sculpture, Poster, Cartoon, Graphics. Exhibition Catalogue: Graphics]

      Moscow: Vsekokhudozhnik, 1934. 80 pp., 47 pl. 18x15 cm. In original printed overlapped wrappers. Very good. A few pale stains on the spine, tears of the wrapper's extremities. One of 1000 copies. Rare. This is a catalogue of graphic art from the exhibition «Artists of the RSFSR for 15 years» which opened on June 27, 1933 in Moscow. It was shown a year earlier in Leningrad in the State Russian Museum featuring the best works of Soviet artists created during that period. In all, more than 3500 works were demonstrated in Moscow. The catalogue includes a fragment from A.S. Bubnov's speech (he was a secretary of the organizing committee), names of members of the committee, and a list of graphic works in alphabetical order by the artist and chronologically for each artist. 47 black and white plates include works by Altman, Lebedev, Filonov, Deineka, Kravchenko, Tyrsa, Pakhomov, Vereisky, Kustodiev, Favorsky and others. The Moscow Jubilee Exhibition included five sections, forming five independent, completely finished parallel exhibitions, united by a common chronological framework and unity of the design set. The sculpture section represented in Leningrad by a very meager and random set of works had to be rebuilt as an equal and integral sector for the Moscow exhibition. Also completely new in comparison with the Leningrad exhibition were sections of the Soviet poster with a caricature and theatrical and decorative art, sections perhaps the most remarkable in terms of exceptional creative brilliancy. The exhibition was planned as an important political event - demonstration of cultural evolution, growth and prosperity, the superiority to the decaying West. In fact it became a watershed separating avant-garde from the official Soviet art. Although the exhibition was opened with Malevich's work hanging at the entrance, the triumph of avant-gardists came to an end, the state made a bet on socialist realism. For the lack of understanding of the moment, the exhibition curator Nikolai Punin was fired, later arrested and sent to the GULag. Here are just some of the names of the exhibitors: A. Arkhipov, I. Grabar, A. Deineka, P. Konchalovsky, P. Korin, A. Kuprin, B. Kustodiev, A. Lentulov, I. Mashkov, K. Petrov-Vodkin, M. Saryan, V. Tatlin, A. Tyshler, P. Filonov, A. Shevchenko, D. Shterenberg, K. Yuon; N. Danko, I. Efimov, A. Matveev, V. Mukhina, M. Rukovishnikov, I. Shadr; V. Deni, G. Klutsis, V. Lebedev, V. Mayakovsky, D. Moore, Stenberg brothers, M. Cheremnykh, B. Efimov, Kukryniksy and many others. Every artist had a different life after this exhibition. For example, Filonov about whom Grabar' later said that he took «a special place at the exhibition by creating his intricate style of elements of cubism and calligraphy, flavored with a strong dose of homegrown philosophy» wasn't able to exhibit for several decades after that because official Soviet art society didn't recognize him as a legit artist.

Julius Streicher der Gauführer von Franken, stand immer in der vordersten Linie der nationalsozialistischen Front. Furchtlos und treu dem deutschen Blut und dem nationalsozialistischen Gedanken trat er für Deutschland in die Schranken. Er hatte Juda als den Todfeind, als den Verderber Deutschlands erkannt, er kannte die Riesenmacht aber auch die Schwächen Judas. Er war einer der ersten, der, von der überragenden Bedeutung Adolf Hitlers überzeugt, sich ihm anschloss und seiner Führung unterstellte. Julius Streicher schreckten nicht Drohungen Gefängnis, zielbewusst kämpfte er gegen den Verderber Deutschlands, und mancher wuchtige Hieb seines Sturmes brachte einen prominenten Juden zur Strecke. Diesem tapferen Vorkämpfer widmen wir unser Buch "Juden sehen Dich an", in Anerkenntnis seiner großen Verdienste. Wir wissen, daß der alte böse Feind noch nicht ganz geschlagen ist, und daß deshalb weiterhin gekämpft werden muss bis zum Endsieg, und wir hoffen, mit unserem Buch ein weiteres Rüstzeug gegen diesen Feind geschaffen zu haben.

Machte aus der "Karl-Marx-Schule" eine kommunistische Pflanzschule des Untermenschentums, lehrte die Kinder Volk, Rasse und Deutschtum zu verachten, richtete Berliner Arbeiterkinder zu Volksverrat und Jugendknechtschaft ab. Ihm zur Seite stand der Jude Carlsen (Krakauer) / Die Gebrüder Rotter.
