CHILDREN'S BOOKS.
1. STERLIGOV, VLADIMIR VASILEVICH. Ogorod. [The Garden.] Moscow and Leningrad: OGIZ, 1931. Illustrated in black and white by V. V. Sterligov. 16mo. 31 pp. Original color lithographed wrappers. Minor wear. FIRST EDITION. Sterligov was a Russian avant-garde painter and poet who studied under Malevich at Vera Ermolaeva's suggestion. He was also a member of the absurdist group OBERIU. He was arrested in 1934 on trumped up charges and spent five years in one of the camps. He survived and later inspired the "Sterligov Group" of young artists. He supplied childlike and child-friendly pictures for Ogorod.
2. CHARUSHIN, EVGENII IVANOVICH. Okhota na medvedya. [Bear Hunt.] OGIZ, 1933. 12mo. 12 pp. Color lithographs. Original color lithographed wrappers. Minor wear. FIRST EDITION. Charushin was one of V. V. Lebedev's protégées and became the top Soviet animal illustrator for children.
3. IUDIN, LEV ALEXANDROVICH, illustrator. DILAKTORSKII, N. Bychok. [Bull-Calf.] Leningrad: Detizdat, 1936. 12mo. 12 pp. Color lithographs. Original color lithographed wrappers. Spine rubbed. FIRST EDITION. Iudin was a Russian Jewish artist who was born in Vitebsk where he came in contact with Malevich. He belonged to GINKhUK, but gave up all ties to the Russian Avant Garde when Social Realism became the official Soviet style. Still Bychok was a charming little book with strong flat poster-like designs. Iudin died during the battle for Leningrad.
4. MOOR, DMITRII (DMITRII STACKIEVICH ORLOV), illustrator. LANDAU, G. and A. GARNICH.. Zhadnyi kot. [The Greedy Cat.] Moscow: "Sovetskii Khudozhnik," 1946. 16 pp. Tipped-in color lithographs. Orignal color lithographed wrappers. Some color crayoning. FIRST EDITION. Moor was one of Russia's fiercest political cartoonists and illustrated relatively few children's books. Zhadnyi kot is late but still one of his most charming efforts in the juvenile field.
