Varius; A. Kudriavtseva, editor
Knizhka malyshke [A little book for a little kid]
München-Schleissheim: "Zlatoust" (Russkoe Zarubezhnoe Izdatel'stvo), [1947]. Oblong octavo (14 × 20.5 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 overall wear and soil. 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]
