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.

WESLEY, JOHN:
Instructions for Children. And the Lord's Prayer, Creed, and Ten Commandments. English & Cingalese. Colombo, Wesleyan Mission Press, 1818.
Small 8vo (10.1 x 14.7 cm). Pp. 29. Parallel text in English and Sinhalese. Original wrappers, chipped along edges and small piece of lower rear wrapper missing. The paper is very brittle. Original envelope as presented. Early imprint from the Wesleyan Mission Press. The British Methodist Mission to Ceylon was initiated by Dr. Thomas Coke. Together with seven other missionaries he left Portsmouth in December 1813. Coke himself died on board the ship but in June 1814 the other missionaries arriving at Galle (southern tip of Ceylon). The Wesleyans acquired the presses and equipment of the Colombo Auxiliary Bible Society in 1816 and started to print publications under William Martin Harvard's supervision. (Ref. Nigel Seeley). The original envelope has an inscription (in an early 20th century hand) reading: "For Mrs. H. W. Hill's Museum with P.W. Robert's compliments. The enclosed is in all probability the first specimen of printing done at the Wesleyan Mission Press Colombo and is exceedingly rare". However the first known works printed by the Wesleyan Mission Press are dated 1817 (see Clair). It means that this little book cannot be the very first specimen but one of the earliest pieces printed at the press.
