EVENBAKH, EVEGENIYA KONSTANTINOVNA, illustrator.
VVEDENSKY, ALEKSANDR IVANOVICH. Na reke. [On the River.] Leningrad: GIZ, 1928.
8vo. 12 pp. Color lithographs. Color lithographed wrappers. Wrappers restored.

An elegant suite of scenes of river life in the Soviet Union by this gifted follower of V.V. Lebedev. Vvedensky belonged to the avant-garde group of Russian absurdists, the Oberiuty. When their work was denounced by the Soviet authorities, they found a place for their work in children's books. Vvedensky was perhaps the most lyrical of the poets of the group as shown in Na reke. He was arrested again in 1941 and died of pleuritis on his way to a prison in Kazan.
