LESZNAI, ANNA:
Mese a btorokrl és a kis firl. Ezt a mesét az én fiamnak anândékozom. (A story about the furniture and the little boy. I give this tale to my son). Gyoma, Kner Izidor, 1918.

Decorated coloured endpapers. First rare edition of this charming children's book illustrated in Lesznai's unique Hungarian Art Nouveau style. Anna Lesznai (Amlia J. Moskowitz) was born in Budapest in 1885. She became one of the most prominent Hungarian poets of the 20th century, as well as a celebrated painter, graphic artist and designer. She was a key figure in the Hungarian avant-garde, a member of the art movement "The Eight" (A Nyolcak). Her painting and embroideries drew much of their inspiration from Hungarian folklore and folk art. In 1939 she emigrated to the United States where she continued her work in art education and opened her own school of painting. She died in New York City in 1966. (This work is printed by the Kner Publishing House as a series of three children's books in the same format, of which one is "Testvrorszg" by Bla Balzs).
