Beobi [Gordin, V.L.]. Grammatika yazyka chelovechestva AO, perevod s AO [i.e. Grammar of the Language of the Mankind. Translated from AO]. Moscow: Chelovechestvo [i.e. Mankind], 1920. [2], 20 pp. 16x13 cm. In contemporary wrappers. Tears and soiling of the wrappers. Otherwise very good. 5.000,00 EUR
In 1915 Velimir Khlebnikov founded `Soyuz 317` (i.e. The Unity of 317 or The Society of the Chairmen of the Globe), and soon it was joined by the members of artistic avant-garde elite like Prokofiev or Rabindranath Tagore. Khlebnikov`s proclamations of that time transmitted ideas of universal brotherhood and the unity of people of culture who are destined to rule the universe. This brochure was created by Gordin brothers who were influenced by Khelbnikov`s ideas (hence the pseudonym of the author of the text - Beobi which was taken from Khlebnikov`s poem). The Gordin brothers took futuristic ideas on the new anarchic level. Brothers Aba (1887-1964) and Volf Gordin were theoreticians of anarchism, followers of Kropotkin and Bakunin. Aba was the founder of a new movement - individualist anarchism (or universalist anarchism). They`ve created their own organization and called themselves "panarchists". In 1917-1920 they published several brochures on panarchism. In 1920 Volf created language of international communication and named it AO. On the first page of this grammar book it`s stated: "There is no god, no nature. Talk like humans, use `AO`". In the brochure they give alphabet, pronunciation rules, parts of speech, abbreviations etc. There were only eleven sounds in the language, five vowels and six consonants. In writing sounds were depicted by numbers. Gordin stressed that his language is universal, and universality excludes any existing alphabets. In 1924 writing of the language was reformed, and AO-2 was presented at the First International exhibition of interplanetary machines and mechanisms in 1927 as the language of cosmic communication. This brochure isn`t recorded anywhere. Possibly one of the few copies produced.

Hand-Colored Map of Pushkin`s St. Petersburg - Novyi plan stolichnogo goroda Sanktpeterburga [New plan of the capital city St. Petersburg, indicating the most important buildings, prospects and streets, alleys, squares, bridges, and barriers in Russian and French]. St. Petersburg, 1819. Original engraved map, measuring 61 × 92 cm, hand-colored. Dissected into eighteen segments and mounted on linen. Folds into the original paper-covered slipcase (21.5 × 17 cm), with printed label and price of 10 rubles. Slipcase with wear to edges; the map with occasional light toning along folds, but very good. 2.800,00 EUR
A detailed and attractively hand-colored map showing St. Petersburg at the dawn the Golden Age of Russian Poetry and of Alexander Pushkin; most likely engraved by Aleksandr D. Savinkov, one of the most accomplished map makers of his era. Early during his reign, Paul I reformed the cartographic production in the Russian Empire, creating the "Maps Depot" by decree in 1796, where cartographers such as Savinkov were employed. In their various states, Savinkov`s maps of St. Petersburg are less frequently found in the trade than Makhaev`s maps of the mid-to late eighteenth-century. With an index in Russian and French, detailing the various buildings, streets, and monuments. Even though, per the administrative partition of 1782, the city consisted of eleven districts, the Liteiny and Vyborgsky Districts are here listed separately. While the Napoleonic Wars interrupted many ongoing building projects, the period after 1812 was marked by swift changes resulting from the growing administrative apparatus, such as the creation of the State Council and various ministries. Savinkov`s map of St. Petersburg was first issued in 1810, and updated editions are known to have appeared in 1835 and 1838, though they were not signed by Savinkov. This 1819 edition-likewise unsigned, but very similar to both the earlier and the later editions-appears particularly uncommon. Not in Rovinskiy (Slovar graverov). Provenance: Reiss & Auvermann (1979); private collection.

Kirsanov, S.I. Slovo predostavlyaetsya Kirsanovu [i.e. The Word Belongs to Kirsanov]. Moscow: GIZ, 1930. [84] pp. 20,5?9 cm. Original wrappers with letterpress lettering and photomontage illustrations. A very good copy. Some restoration of the covers. 1.900,00 EUR
One of 3000 copies. - An exceptional example of innovative constructivist typographic design by Telingater that intended to enhance the work of the leftist poet Semyon Kirsanov. - Solomon Telingater (1903-1969) was a Russian graphic artist, designer and typeface designer. Telingater wrote influential books on typography and designed some of the most memorable books of the Soviet period. He was the first Soviet citizen to receive the Gutenberg award for his achievements in designing books and typefaces. - The pioneer in printing arts was El Lissitzky who saw the book as a visual object, but the widespread acceptance of these ideas did not occur until the turn of the 1920s and `30s as a result of the efforts of his young followers. First among them was Telingater. He designed books as if they were films, or a monumental poster - as sophisticated artistic construction. This kind of book was produced for its collective impact, not merely for the joy of the individual reader. His work is akin to the art of declamation: letters react to slightest fluctuations of poetic intonation instantly changing the size and color. His vision also affected what literary genres he chose to work with, and Kirsanov`s poetic work provided appropriate material to match Telingater`s extraordinary visual imagination. The front wrapper suggests a combination of agit-prop and Dadaist elements via collage techniques. For one particular poem, the type is laid out in the shape of a man. All elements of the book, including the text itself, are connected as one visual art object which makes a very strong impression on its readers.

The importance of these... books cannot be overrated: they were instrumental for a new kind of children`s book illustration.

First edition of the military and diplomatic campaign journals by Peter the Great, his lieutenants, and secretaries, which document the Russian war with Sweden and the legal and military development of the Russian Empire. They were to serve as the basis for any authoritative history of Petrine Russia and were compiled and edited by Peter himself, with the help of Aleksey Makarov and Petr Shapirov, but published at Catherine the Great`s behest after Peter`s death. She tasked the conservative statesman, writer, and thinker, Prince Mikhail Shcherbatov (1733-1790) with editing the work. Peter was highly invested in leaving detailed documentation on the Great Northern War (1700-1721), which led to Sweden`s defeat in the Baltic and established the Russian Empire as a major European political and military power. The journal describes in detail Peter`s strategy, the movement of troops, and the course of battles. It lists military equipment, details material losses, and provides lists of wounded and imprisoned soldiers and generals. Especially noteable is the lengthy description of the signing of the Treaty of Nystad and the ensuing celebrations, replete with fireworks and festive banquets. The Journal is supplemented with numerous documents taken from Peter`s Cabinet Archive and other state repositories. Among them are declarations on the unsuccessful 1710-1711 campaign against Ottoman forces, the account of Peter`s travels through Copenhagen, Amsterdam, and France in 1717, and Peter`s Manifesto about those responsible for the continuing war (1719). Most copies lack the second volume, which was published two years after the first; others have only the first part of volume two (up to p. 191). Our copy lacks only a part of the supplements and edicts. Still scarce in such a state of completion, with almost no auction records both in Russia and abroad. In 2007, the Mollo-Stroganov copy (containing volume 1 only) sold for 3000 GBP. One of 1200 copies. Bitovt 1683. Svodnyi katalog 2282. Sopikov 4096.

Döderlein, Johann Alexander. Sviatii Strastoterpets Khristov Feodor Stratiliat. Slavonisch-Russisches Heiligthum mitten in Teutschland; Das ist: der grosse Heilige und Maerthyrer, Pheodor Stratilat, oder Theodorus Dux, aus einer, in der Hoch-Adel-Rieterischen Kirche zu Kalbensteinberg, unweit Weissenburg am Nordgau, aufbehaltenen, mit Uhr-alten Gemählden und Alt-Russischen, oder Slavonischen Beyschriften gezierten sehr alten Tafel, nach unterschiedlichen Menaeis und Martyrologiis, beeder, so wohl der Morgen- als Abendländischen Kirchen. Nürnberg: J. E. Adelbulner für W. M. Endter Erben, 1724. Small quarto (20,5 x 17 cm). Contemporary colored-paper over boards; 142 pp. Folded engraving, measuring 50 × 42 cm, tipped in. Two private book plates; earlier signature to p. 133. Lower spine worn; binding lightly shaken, but still intact and internally very good. 1.600,00 EUR
The first Western monograph on a Russian artwork, the hagiographic icon of Theodor Stratilates, housed at the church in Kalbensteinberg, Germany. Long attributed to Novgorod-era masters, the icon is now generally thought to stem from the Pskov region, though its exact origin remains unclear: "Die Theodorus-Ikone aus dem Pskower Kunstkreis wurde zu Beginn des 16. Jahrhunderts geschaffen. Es wird angenommen, dass das Bild von einem Mitglied der Familie Rieter von einer Reise oder einer Kriegsfahrt nach Russland oder Polen mitgebracht wurde. Wahrscheinlich war es Philipp Rieter (1566-1633 oder 1635)" (Dekanat Gunzenhausen). The large engraving of the icon shows the saint at the center, surrounded by twelve scenes from his life, which are explained by Döderlein, who interprets not only its iconography, but transcribes and translates the Slavonic inscriptions. Praising Peter the Great and Russia`s new-found fame abroad, he notes that the Empire`s earlier obscurity made him doubt that a Russian icon could be located in a German church at all. Ultimately, Döderlein achieves a remarkable feat of inter-cultural mediation: his work not only educates German readers about Russian art and religion, but makes the foreign icon useful for spiritual contemplation by local paritioners. The historian, philologist, and pedagogue Döderlein (1675-1745) was a major German polymath of the Baroque era and a member of Prussian Academy of Sciences. Cat. Russica D683.

The first book by the author. Rare. - According to N. Smirnov-Sokolskii it took him `quite a while` to find this book for his collection. The collection of stories were written by Tolstoy when he was serving in Sevastopol during Crimean War. The short story Sebastopol in December of 1854 quickly became popular among the readers in Russia and even Emperor Nicolas I asked to "take care of the talented officer". That was the beginning of recognition on national level for 28-year-old author. Tolstoy`s impressions during this war later were used in `War and Peace`. The roots of the pacifist and anti-patriotic ideas that he formulated later in his life also lie in this book. - The last copy that was sold at auction went for 34850 GBP (Christie`s, Nov 21, 2012). - Smirnov-Sokolskii. 1190; not in Kilgour.

Turgenev, I.S. Otsy i deti [i.e. Fathers and Sons]. Moscow: tip. V. Grachiova, 1862. 304 pp. 8vo. In contemporary half-leather with gilt lettering on the spine. Spine is refurbished, few marks in text. Otherwise near fine. 8.500,00 EUR
First separate edition of `Fathers and Sons` by Ivan Turgenev (1818-1883). - `Fathers and Sons` considered to be the most famous of Turgenev`s novels. It first appeared in 1862 in Russkii vestnik (i.e. The Russian Herald). After this publication Turgenev prepared the novel for the separate edition by editing the text: he added dedication to his mentor and liberal critic Belinsky (1811-1848) which served as an important message to friends and enemies and pointed to democratic nature of the novel. He also removed some of Bazarov`s unpleasant features (some call him first Bolshevik in Russian literature). In his letter to Gertsen he wrote: "...while inventing Bazarov I wasn`t angry with him, but felt attraction... I don`t feel guilty because of him... it was tough to make him a wolf and yet to defend him...". - The novel examined the conflict between the older generation, reluctant to accept reforms, and the nihilistic youth. Turgenev wrote that he got the idea for this book on the beach at Ventnor, England, in August, 1860, but that Bazarov was really based on a person he knew, a "Dr. D." He finished writing it on his Russian estate in July of 1861, and published it in March, 1862, in The Russian Herald, a magazine that had become conservative. Before this book, liberal Russian critics had praised his realistic depictions of the serfs. But they considered his depiction of Bazarov here to be an attack on liberalism, and reactionary Russian conservatives praised the author. Turgenev, however, stated that he tried to obey aesthetic truth rather than write political propaganda. - Fathers and Sons was set during the six-year period of social ferment, from Russia`s defeat in the Crimean War to the Emancipation of the Serfs. Hostile reaction to Fathers and Sons prompted Turgenev`s decision to leave Russia. Turgenev lived mostly in France and the West, following opera singer Mme Viardot, her husband and children. Turgenev`s works were translated into French but it was not until about 1894 that Constance Garnett first translated them into English. Turgenev`s style had a great effect on those writers who followed the banners of naturalism or realism. He was praised by Flaubert and Henry James and William Dean Howells.
