Catalogue Note

A copy of the 1935 edition of this famous children's book by Samuil Marshak is included in the lot, preserved in matching folder. The first edition was published by Raduga in 1926. The collaboration between Marshak and Lebedev was emblematic of the intense creative relationships between author and artist during this period. Marshak was a poet, satirist and translator of English literature, becoming the hugely influential editor of the Leningrad board of OGIZ, the State Publishing House. Marshak and Lebedev collaborated on over 50 titles, many for children, of which Bagazh is one of the best-known. (See also lots 89-91.)
