Ein Ghetto im Osten (Vilna). 65 Bilder von M. Vorobeichic. Eingeleitet von S. Chneour. Orell Fussli Verlag, Leipzig und Zurich, 1931. Schaubucher Series,
No. 27. First edition. Octavo. Cloth-backed photo-illustrated boards. Preliminaries + 5 pp. text in German + 64 pages of photographs + text in Hebrew.
Important both as documentation of conditions in the Jewish Ghetto before World War II, and as an example of the photographic work of Vorobeichic, better known as Moi Ver. The inventive photographic mise-en-page was ahead of its time; it is similar to that used by Ilya Ehrenburg and El Lissitzky in Moi Parizh , which was published two years later. A rare book.
A near fine copy, except for some light rubbing to the cover illustrations and to some edges of the boards.
