Description

Stapled printed covers, 92pp.. Intourist advertisement to back page. Constructivist, letter press design to upper cover. Spine ends chipped, paper browned but tight and clean. Paper quality and printing of the time and place. An interesting example of early Soviet publishing, both for its typography and for its purpose; that of promoting the Russian language to foreigners. Tsentrizdat was established in 1924 and dissolved in 1931 when the USSR centralised its printing and publishing. This is New Zealand economist’s, Allan G. B. Fisher’s copy. In 1931 he was awarded a Rockefeller Fellowship, which enabled him to travel and study in, amongst other places, Poland and Russia.
