        AVRAHAM SOSKIN ORIG AUTOGRAPH ON PHOTO "HAPOEL FOOTBALL TEAM" SIGNED 1947 HEBREW

      VERY RARE! AVRAHAM SOSKIN, HIS ORIGINAL AUTOGRAPH ON HIS PHOTO OF"HAPOEL FOOTBALL TEAM" SIGNED 1947 HEBREWWITH NAMES OF PHOTOGRAPHED ON REVERSE SIDE WRITTEN BY HAND OF AVRAHAM SOSKINPHOTO MADE IN TEL-AVIV ON ROOF, ALLENBY STREET 115MAY 1947, HAPOEL FOOTBALL TEAM BEFORE LEAVING FOR USAWITH STAMP OF ATELIER OF A. SOSKIN LOWER LEFTDIMENSIONS: 11 x 28 cm.(4.3 x 11")BENDS TO LOWER RIGHT CORNER   Avraham Soskin was born in Russia in 1884 and immigrated to Israel in 1905. He became renowned as the quintessential 'Tel Aviv Photographer', and was famous for capturing the historic housing lottery in Ahuzat Bayit (the genesis of the city). His photographs accompany the construction and development of the first Hebrew city, and are a key source of information on Tel Aviv's first days, its streets, and its residents, as well as important events in its history. Photos courtesy of Eretz Israel Museum, Tel Aviv Avraham Soskin (1881-1963) was the quintessential "Tel Aviv photographer" in the first decades following the city's establishment. His photograph of the historic lottery of housing parcels that took place on April 11, 1909, on the Jaffa sand dunes is the most frequently reproduced and widely disseminated image of early Tel Aviv. Soon thereafter, the streets of the Ahuzat Bayit suburb were laid out and the first buildings erected. From 1914 to 1933 Soskin maintained his studio at 24 Herzl Street, down the block from the new town's principal landmark, the Herzliah Gymnasium. After he closed his studio he supported himself through a typesetting (zincography) business. The leaders of the Zionist movement, both in Palestine and abroad, were well aware of the power of photography as a medium for publicity and propaganda. Dozens of Soskin's photographs were reproduced on postcards during the early years, and in 1926 some achieved canonic status when they were published in a small album aptly entitled Tel Aviv. Soskin is the most prominent photographer represented in the Eliasaf Robinson Collection, which has rich holdings of historically significant postcards, commercial photographs, and snapshots produced by other photographers.

Smith says in his "Acknowledgment": For the privilege of republishing the stories which make up this volume, the writer is grateful to the editors of Collier's and American magazines. There is an added acknowledgment to H. G. Tapply, editor of Outdoors, whose interest in the Jeff Coongate stories, and in the wilderness country around "Mopang" and "Privilege," has been pleasingly predatory. EWS; and concludes his excellent Foreword, thus: [.] In conclusion, I find myself tempted to give my father a name commensurate with his own narrative ability. He ought to have been christened Tom Sawyer Finn, or Captain Galahad Flint, or Don Quixote Balzac, or James Fenimore Dostoevsky, Instead, I am for once compelled to stick to the truth in dedicating these wantonly fictitious stories, with immense and unending gratitude, to my father, whose name is George M. Smith--and who, when he reads this at age seventy-seven, will doubtless bend his searching eyes upon me, and remark:"Ed--I consider this foreword one of the most eloquent lies I have ever told you!"

        Knizhka malyshke [A little book for a little kid]

      Zlatoust (Russkoe Zarubezhnoe Izdatel'stvo), München-Schleissheim 1947 - Oblong octavo (20.5 × 14 cm). Original pictorial wrappers; 40 pp. Publisher's device to rear wrapper and numerous small black-and-white drawings throughout. About very good; some rust to staples and light wear to spine extremities. Rare anthology of Russian children's verse published by this publishing house of the Russian "displaced persons" (DP) camp Schleissheim, in the American occupied zone of Germany. Both the editor of the book, A. Kudriavtseva, and the illustrator, Robert Shlykevich, were likely displaced persons (nothing is known about them). The book consists of poems by a range of Russian authors, including Agniia Barto, who went on to win the Stalin Prize in 1949 for her work. Others represented in the book include: the nineteenth-century poet K. A. Peterson; Korney Chukovsky, a popular children's writer; and Sasha Chernyi, a Silver Age poet, children's author, and satirist, who emigrated after the Russian Revolution. Interestingly, in some instances the poems vary slightly from other versions of the well-known verse. For example, in Barto's "Snegir'" (1939) the first line is changed from "on the Arbat" (the famous boulevard in Moscow) to the more generic "on the prospect". The DP publisher Zlatoust was founded in 1946 and had anti-communist leanings; it published political works as well as children's literature, translations, high liter- ature and more popular books such as detective novels. Rare, with no copies in KVK, OCLC; not at the Russian State or National Library. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Typed Letter Signed while in exile in the United States

      Kew Gardens, NY, 1947. unbound. 1 page, 11 x 8.5 inches, Kew Gardens, New York, February 18, 1947, providing a philanthropist with the name of a worthy German who is deserving of economic assistance during the post-war shortage crisis, in part: "...Emil Samorei has been a militant for the workers' cause since a very long time. Almost a youngster he stood in the 'Spartacus' front during World War I. Sent to the battle front he was crippled for the rest of his life. But his spirit was never broken. Soon, he became one of the courageous leaders of the Ruhr miners in their hard political and economic struggles. Under the Nazi terror he was caught by the Gestapo, terribly tortured and sentenced to hard labor. Only the fact that he was crippled in the war saved him from capital punishment. After ten years he left the prison almost paralyzed but with his old fighting spirit..." Usual folds with docketing notations presumably in Frolich's hand; very good(-) condition. German political activist and founding member of the Communist Party of Germany. Following the rise to power of Adolf Hitler in 1933, he was imprisoned in the Lichtenberg concentration camp, eventually fleeing to France and then the United States. He is best remembered as a pioneer biographer of the assassinated Communist Rosa Luxemburg.

        PRISON MUSIC & ART: IV. broj Usmenih novina, Proslava 800 Godina Moskve [4th issue of the Oral Newspaper. Celabration of 800th Anniversary of Moscow].

      [Stara Gradiska, Croatia: September ] 1947 - Broadside, manuscript in black ink and aquarell 22,5 x 17,5 cm (8.9 x 6.9 inches) A unique manuscript broadside was made in the prison camp Stara Gradi_ka in Croatia in 1947, for a musical event at the 800th anniversary of Moscow, by the orchestra, organised by the inmates. During WWII Stara Gradi_ka was one of the most notorious concentration and extermination camps in Croatia during World War II and a subcamp of the Jesenovac concentration camp. It was liberated by the Partisans in April 1945. In the first years after WWII the same camp became a prison for political prisoners for people, active in the pro-Nazi Independent State of Croatia. This broadside of Oral Newspapers (a common term for wall newspapers and broadsides in and after WWII, when paper was scarce and sometimes literacy was low), was made by the orchestra, lead by Marijan Zuber (1913-2008), a prominent Croatian musician, from 1948 active in Varazdin.
