Zurich and Leipzig, Orell Fussli Verlag, 1931

The scarce German/Yiddish edition.

Moï-Ver made the photographs for this, his first book in the Jewish quarter of Vilnius, where he was born and raised. In 1927, he attended classes at the Bauhaus in Dessau before going to Paris to study at the École Technique de Photographie et de Cinematographie. Both his photographs and the layout employ New Vision techniques such as unconventional angles, double-printing, repetition, and montage to create a visually stunning book that documents a way of life that was destroyed by Nazi Germany a decade later. Ein Ghetto im Osten (Wilna) is the most sought-after book in the Orell Füssli's Schaubücher series. It was issued simultaneously in German/Hebrew, English/Hebrew, and German/Yiddish versions.

First edition, German/Yiddish issue; 12mo (189 x 127 mm, 7½ x 5 in); 64 pages of black-and-white photomontages and photographs printed in relief halftone, text in German (left to right) and Yiddish (right to left), minor toning to edges, spotting to top edge; plain endpapers, minor foxing, quarter orange cloth, photo-illustrated paper-covered boards printed in black and orange, titles stamped in black on spine, light wear to extremities, slightly bowed, scuff to upper board, spine lightly faded, without the scarce plastic dust-jacket, a close to near-fine copy; 7, [1], [64], 6, [2] pp.

Regards sur un siècle de photographie à travers Le Livre #46; The Photobook: A History I, p.130; 802 Photo Books from the M+M Auer Collection p.168.
