Price: $450.00


New York: (The Editors), 1932. First Edition. Folio. Original stiff pictorial printed wraps designed by Roman Chatov. 30.5 x 22 cm. Fair to good only. Ex-lib with usual faults. Spine of wrappers nearly perished, covers detached and chipped. Damping to fore-edge. Still, complete and unsophisticated example of a poorly-made work almost always found in similar condition. One of 1500 copies, this copy unnumbered. [1-12], 13-249, [22, including ads]. (Item ID: 15264)

Scarce but important reference: biographies with accompanying photos of Russian-born artists who emigrated to the U.S., including section on musicians, writers, dancers, painters, actors, and others. Among the 101 entries are numerous important figures such as Prokofieff, Rachmaninoff, Chaliapin, Horowitz, Ouspenkaya, and Soudeikin. Oliver M. Sayler provides the preface. Although the editors note plans for a second volume, this does not appear to have ever been published. OCLC locates about two dozen holdings, but they are scattered, with many major institutions lacking. We note an incomplete copy in similar condition brough $720 at Bloomsbury in 2008.
