Wegen, Heft A [Roads, Booklet A], anthology of poetry and prose edited by M. Szwarc. Lodz, 1922. Yiddish.
An anthology of poetry and prose featuring works by Moishe Broderzon, Oser Warszawski, Chaim Leib Fox (Fuks), David Koenigsberg, Yitzchak Berliner, Sarah Baum and others. A reproduction of the painting "Adam and Eve" by Joseph Hecht is printed on the front cover.
The artist Joseph Hecht (1891-?) was born in Lodz, studied at the Art Academy in Krakow during the years 1909-1914 and then travelled to Norway, where he worked and exhibited his works until 1919. In 1920, he arrived in Paris, where he devoted himself to engraving and took part in the establishment of the organization "Young Contemporary Engraving Artists" (La Jeune Gravure Contemporaine). There is a dispute as to whether he perished in an extermination camp or died in Paris in 1951.
32 columns (two columns per page), approx. 35 cm. Fair condition. Detached leaves. Minor creases. Closed and open tears to edges (large open tears to back cover). Foxing (mostly on cover). The two parts of the cover are detached from each other and from the booklet.
The anthology is not recorded in OCLC.
