We are pleased to publish our latest catalog:
Catalog 179, Rare Jewish Posters from Inter-War Latvia.
Below we offer nineteen inter-war Jewish Latvian posters, printed between 1925 and 1934, the year of the Fascist Coup in Latvia. All were printed with woodcut type on thin paper so that they could be quickly produced and affixed to walls to announce upcoming events. Given the high level of preservation and lack of glue stains, these posters definitely never made it onto any outdoor wall in Riga or elsewhere. Instead, they were tucked away for the next eight or nine decades. Markings indicate that these posters were printed in shops in Riga, Liepaja, Saldus, Kuldiga, and Daugavpils, promoting events in these same cities and towns. All are 100% original posters from almost 100 years ago.
Represented are various strains of Jewish Latvian life. Events of the Revisionist Zionists (Betar), Religious Zionists (Mizrachi), and Socialist Zionists (Hechalutz) are all promoted, as are a variety of cultural events. These events include:
- A night of political debates at the Yidisher Folks-Hoiz of Riga,
- Various plays, both highbrow and shund, of the Yiddish Theatre in Riga,
- A benefit for Jewish Children put on by the Bar-Kochba association,
- A Cantorial concert in the Bet-Midrash of Kurzeme.
Of special note are the literary evenings announced in these posters: a lecture on I.L. Peretz and Sholem Aleichem entitled 'Don-Quixotic Types in Jewish Literature', and a literary reading given by Chaim Zhitlovsky on his tour of Latvia in 1925, a few months before his widely celebrated 60th Birthday of that year.
Yiddish is present, as is Latvian text, and two 1925 posters from Kuldigas (a town in western Latvia famous as the birthplace of Max Weinreich), which promote the Maccabi sports club and the Jewish school system, include German.
As always, every item is offered subject to prior sale and is 100% returnable for any reason. Domestic shipping for posters is generally $6.00 for the first item and $1.00 for each additional item. International shipments are at cost, generally $24.00. Please note that we can professionally linen-back your posters for preservation for about $175.00 each. Please enquire.
