4to. Lithographed throughout in color after Lebedev. Original color lithographed wrappers also by him. Covers slightly dust-soiled, couple of light creases.

FIRST EDITION. Tsirk is one of the masterworks of the Soviet Constructivist picture book. When V. V. Lebedev brought the art to the children's book publisher "Raduga," the editor S. Marshak was so charmed with the designs that he wrote verses to go with them. Mayakovsky was a great admirer of this booklet. It was also issued in a Dutch edition in 1931.
