[61 booklets, nearly complete set of the "Pamphlet library on the Soviet Union" produced for the Soviet pavilion at the 1939 World's Fair in New York]

Moscow: Foreign Languages Publishing House, 1939. Sixty-one different 4.25x5.5 inch booklets, avergage length 25-40 pages, almost all in very good condition. The boxed set sold at the World's Fair contained 58 titles, but some were apparently added in the next year or two, as a complete listing of titles from the April 1941 issue of "Soviet Russia Today" lists 63 in all (a photocopy of that list is included). The booklets missing from this set are "The Jewish Autonomous Region" and "The Soviet Press." Each is authored by an expert in the subject; for example, "The Soviet Screen" is by Eisenstein. Many outstanding examples of cover design; the "Magnitogorsk" is decorated in metallic ink and in blind, with red lettering. "The Moscow Subway" is classical 1930s motif. Two of the polar exploration texts have wraparound woodblock engravings. While most are in very good condition, several have a touch of rust to the staples; Moshkovsky's "Parachute-jumping and gliding" has rusted staples and soiled wraps, and "Soviet youth at work and play" has rubberstamps on the cover indicating it was received by the Labor Research Association in New York in 1940.
