Igor's Summer. A Story of Our Russian Friends
NY, Russian War Relief, (1943). Presumed first edition, inscribed by the authors: "For Ann - who gave us the title -- and lots of help. Love & Merry Christmas -- Jerry and Lorraine." The American Jewish husband and wife team wrote more than fifty books for young readers, on topics as diverse as race relations, integration, disability, and sexism. This title was published during WWII, when the Russians were Allies. Illustrated by Kurt Wiese. Books signed by the Beims are rare. The two died relatively early, though unrelated, deaths in the 1950s. The pictorial boards are dusty and sunned, with a chip threatening at the spine crown: a very good copy in a supplied, very good, lightly edge-chipped dust jacket. [#035969] $375

All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.
