Authors: Sergey [Sergei] Ivanovich Tomakh and Yevgen [Evgeny, Yevgeniy] Viacheslavovich Kholostenko (1904-1945). Design by Ol. Ger. Cover by Vasyl' Sedliar. Text in Ukrainian. 4to (10" x 7") card covers with dust jacket. 90 full-size b/w illustrations. 1000 copies only. Warmly inscribed and signed by both authors (1932) to well-known Soviet art critic Aleksey Ivanovich Mikhailov (1904-?). The book is FINE, DJ is Very Good.

The book was published by Kiev Artistic Institute, the center of the Ukraine Avant-garde art in 1920's.

Notes:
After members of the Avant-garde group of "boichukisty" were repressed by the Soviet government, not only their works were destroyed (frescoes in the Chervonozavods'kyi Club, etc.), but also printed works like posters and even books in which they participated were eliminated. Copies of this book were also removed from libraries: a) it contains illustrations of Avant-garde works; b) at least one of authors (both authors were also artists themselves), i.e. Kholostenko, belonged to the Boichuk brothers group; c) Vasyl' Sedliar, who designed the book cover, was an active member of the same group.

Very Rare, especially in such condition, with DJ and signed. Not in MOMA, not in Getty.

Orlov, Ivan)
TIPOGRAFSKAYA PECHAT' ORLOVA ("Orlov's Typographical Printing"). Album. (Money Printing)
[St. Petersburg, 1890's]

4to (10" x 7-1/4") cloth embossed in gilt to front; all edges gilt; moire endpapers; tissue guards; slipcase.

An elaborately manufactured album containing 67 original prints - samples of money printing using technology invented by an outstanding Russian engineer Ivan Orlov. Nice condition.
Loosely inserted 4-page 4to (10" x 8") booklet in English advertising Orlov's printing method (Gold Medal on 1900 Paris Exhibition).

The copy belonged to an important industrial official Mikhail Tripolitov, contains his stamped address and signed probably by I. Orlov.

Comparing Tripolitov's address in the album with his known addresses in old directories, the album should be dated before 1901. It might be prepared for 1900 Paris exhibition.
Because both Orlov and Tripolitov were engineers and worked for the same Russian money-printing organization E.Z.G.B. (Ekspeditsiya Zagotovleniya Gosudarstvennykh Bumag), the album could be a gift to Tripolitov from Orlov himself.
