One of the 200 copy. Signed by the translator. Dymov sought to improve the artistic quality of Yiddish theater, collaborating with Maurice Schwartz and Rudolf Schildkraut. From 1927 to 1932, Dymov worked in Germany, where his plays formed part of the repertoire of the renowned Deutsches Theater, directed by his long-time colleague and friend, Max Reinhardt. When Dymov returned to the United States, he continued to write plays and to publish in the Yiddish press, and also was a screenwriter, creating Der Vilner shtot khazn (Cantor of Vilna [also known as Overture to Glory]; 1940) with Yankev Glatshteyn. In 1948, the founder and editor in chief of the Forverts, Abraham Cahan, formed a committee to publish Dymov’s collected works, but the project was not ultimately pursued. (YIVO).
