Paris: [S.n.] (Imp. d’art Voltaire), 1926. Illustrated with reproductions of seven drawings (of which one full page) by Marc Chagall. First edition, first number, complete run. In publisher’s printed wrappers. 31, (1) p. Wrappers artistically restored. In fine condition.

Marc Chagall-illustrated, scarce Yiddish avant-garde literary review, the first and only number of the last glint of “Di Khalyastre” movement.

“Literarishe Revi” was edited by Ozer Warshavsky, the modernist, avant-garde Yiddish writer, the co-editor and creator of the second almanac of the “Di Khalyastre” (Paris, 1924), and contributor to the last issue of Uri Zvi Greenberg’s Yiddish Expressionist magazine the “Albatros” (Berlin, 1923). Warshavsky (1898–1945) started his literary career in his home country Poland in the mid-1910s and his first book, the very well received “Shmuglars” (Smugglers) was published in 1920. He became an active contributor to various Yiddish magazines and other publications in Poland (In di berg; Khalyastre I.), London (Di tsayt), New York (Tsukunft) and in Berlin (Albatros). Warshavsky left Poland in 1923, and after a short stay in Berlin, and London, he settled down in Paris. There he joined the Paris-members of the Khalyastre (Gang), one of the major Polish Yiddish avant-garde movements, rooted in the Yung-Yiddish circle led by Peretz Markish, and co-edited its second almanac, which was entirely illustrated by Marc Chagall. With the same artists and other major Yiddish writers including Ilya Ehrenburg and Itzik Feffer Warshavsky edited this single-issue literary magazine, “Literarishe Revi". Besides the writings of Markish, Ehrenburg, and Feffer, it contains texts by Israel Joshua Singer, Leo Kenig, Ezra Fininberg, Zev (Lupus) Blumenfeld, Sh. Gidal, and Warshavsky’s essay on Chagall, and a chapter of his novel “Shnittsayt” (The Harvest). The magazine was illustrated with seven reproductions of Marc Chagall’s drawings, among them one full page illustration and a self-portrait of the artist.

Scarce, we could trace only five copies in institutional holdings worldwide.
