[PHOTO-DOCUMENTATION OF TOYS PRODUCED FOR KINDERGARTEN CHILDREN] Sat'amashoebis laboratoriis ek'sponatebis albomi [i.e An Album of the Toy Laboratory Exhibits]
Tbilisi: Zaria Vostoka, 1941. 80 pp: ill. 18x27.6 cm. In original cloth with lettering and decoration on the front board. Near fine. Loss of the endpapers. Scarce. One of 800 copies.

Lortkipanidze, B. Avalishvili, R. Natadze, F. Farvariuk, etc.) and, in some cases, masters (M. Gudiashvili, P. Starodubtsev, A. Andreev, etc.). The most fascinating thing about the work is that each article is supplemented with the unique illustrations giving a valuable insight into the process of learning in Soviet Georgian kindergartens. The photos date back to the late 1930s. The album features 4 colored illustrations of the educational toys "Triala" (author of the idea - B. Khachapurhidze, master - M. Gudiashvili), "Seqtorina" (author of the idea - B. Khachapurhidze, master - M. Gudiashvili), and "Tsibruti" (author of the idea - B.
