Duch rewolucyonista. Szkice z lat minionych 1905-1907 [cover title].
[Warsaw, B. Wierzbicki] for Tygodnik illustrowany, 1907. FIRST EDITION. Folio, 10 mounted reproductions of drawings, printed in sepia, with printed captions on brown mounting boards; well preserved in the original publisher's wrappers printed in red and sepia; wrappers loose and with frayed margins. Very rare gripping pictorial documentation of the 1905 revolution in Warsaw and the cruel reaction thereafter. This first printing of Revolutionary Spirit. Sketches of the past years 1905-1907 was given free to long-standing subscribers of the illustrated weekly paper Tygodnik illustrowany to celebrate its 50th anniversary in December 1907. The illustrations had appeared earlier in various issues of this liberal periodical. Anton Kamienski (1860-1933) was the artistic eyewitness of the revolution in Warsaw, and this work defined the Polish proletarian iconography up to the Second World War. Single prints were hung onto walls of political assembly rooms, bars, and homes of socialists, sometimes mounted on, or decorated with, ribbons of red paper. Generations of Polish working class children grew up with Kamienski's imagery, which accounts for the extreme rarity of a complete album. Offered together with the complete issue 2510 of the Tygodnik illustrowany (December 14, 1907), which contains the illustrated announcement for this publication on page 1023.
