About This Item

501 pages with plates, drawings, table and index. Royal octavo (9 1/4" x 6") bound in original publisher's pictorial wrappers. This history of the turbulent destiny of Kino ("film" in Russian) documents the artistic development of the Russian and Soviet cinema and traces its growth from 1896 to the death of Sergei Eisenstein in 1948. The new Postscript surveys the directions taken by Soviet cinema since the end of World War II. Beginning with the Lumiere filming of the coronation of Tsar Nicholas II, Jay Leyda links Russia's pre-Revolutionary past with its Communist present through the observation of a major cultural phenomenon: the evolution of the Soviet film as an artistic and political instrument. The book contains 150 drawings and photographs and five appendices, including a list of selected Russian and Soviet films from 1907 to the present. Condition: Previous owner's name on front verso wrapper, notes on back end paper, underlining, rubbing to extremities, corners bumped, back corners severely creased else about very good.
