New York: Friends Publishers, 1965. First edition. Small octavo. Pictorial cloth boards; dustjacket; 272pp. Illustrated by William Gropper; translated from the Yiddish by Max Rosenfeld. Hinges age-darkened, else a fine, straight copy in very lightly worn dustjacket with a few tiny closed nicks to extremities and some dusting to rear panel. Uncommon collection of semi-autobiographical short stories by the prolific Yiddish-language author. The Gropper illustrations appear to be taken from earlier sources.
