Prague: R. Rejman, 1927. Small octavo (16 × 11.4 cm). Original decorative wrappers; [40] leaves. A very good copy. Scarce collection of good-natured, but witty parodies of contemporary Czech political life, including the communists, fascists, republicans, workers and bourgeois, as well as leading figures of the Czech avant-garde, such as Teige (whose name appears in a funny "advertisement" for "the latest and best Parisian products", as well as in a satirical epitaph of Karel Teige, which explaines "teigeism" as a conglomerate of various -isms, such as "dadaismus, futurismus, konstruktivismus..." and, finally, "idiotismus." Bělohlávek (1902-1991) was a musicologist, writer, and film critic, later cultural attaché at the Czech embassy in London. Wrappers designed by Stanislav Roch. Vloemans 85.
