Berlin: Gelikon, 1923. Item #469
2nd edition. 187,  pp. 19x14 pp. Illustrated wrappers. Very good, wrappers are slightly rubbed.
Cover design by Nathan Altman.
The first book of prose by Ilya Erenburg (1891-1967), poet, journalist and translator. The book contains his memories of the WWI. Gelikon was one of the leading Russian publishers in Berlin at the time printing the contemporary authors with the designs of the important artists of the day – El Lisitzky, Vasily Matushin and others.
The first edition of this book had a wrapper by Altman as well, but of different design.
This work is interesting because it’s created in the most productive period of Altman’s life when he was working for Kultur-Lige and Yiddish theatre (GOSEKT) in Moscow.
