12mo. 32 pp. Publisher's device designed by Sergei CHEKHONIN. Decorated wrappers. A couple ink smudges on wrappers.

RARE CHILDREN'S BOOK CATALOG. Raduga was the most important publisher of "books for children and youth" during the early Soviet period. Among the writers and artists the private firm published were K. Chukovsky, S. Marshak, O. Mandelshtam, E. Shvarts, V.V. Lebedev, S. Chekhonin, M. Dobuzhinsky, V. Konashevich, B. Kustodiev, D. Mitrokhin and K. Petrov-Vodkin. "Raduga" means "rainbow"; and the printer's device shows one above Noah's dove returning with the olive branch to the Ark. The firm flourished under NEP or New Economic Policy but folded during the Five Year Plan. The catalog opens with glowing tributes from important journals and proceeds with a full listing of titles then available. Included is a copy of the magazine Ekran (The Screen), December 5, 1925, with a full page advertisement in color for Raduga in Moscow on the back wrapper, mentioning that their books were recently awarded a medal at the famous 1925 International Exposition of Decorative Arts.
