MARSHAK, SAMUIL YAKOLEVICH. 1887-1964.
Autograph Manuscript, 2 pp rectos only, folio, n.p., c.1930, entitled "Razgovor na phlube" (On the Deck), in pencil, a working manuscript with a few corrections.

Concerns two young men on a deck of a ship, one of them speaking Spanish, the other Russian, however they communicate well, using the words "Comrade, Lenin, Stalin, Komsomol, Madrid, Moscow." Apparently propaganda relating to the time of the Soviet Union's participation in the Spanish Civil War. His propaganda work aside, Marshak is well-known as one of Russia's great authors for children.
