PETROV-VODKIN, KUZMA SERGEEVICH, illustrator.
BAKHANOVSKAYA, ELENA. Khristofor Kholum [Christopher Columbus]. Moscow and Leningrad: GIZ, 1926.
4to. 23 pp. Black-and-white illustrations. Color lithographed wrappers. Wrappers restored, some thumbsoiling.

FIRST AND ONLY EDITION of this rare children's book illustrated by Petrov-Vodkin. Although the Italian explorer landed on what is now Cuba, Petrov-Vodkin includes a drawing of the Great Plains with a buffalo and a condor. The great modern Russian painter illustrated few children's stories and perhaps the best known is this unusual Marxist version of the life of the Discoverer of America.
