Tbilisi, 1931. Large octavo (25.6 × 17.4 cm). Original pictorial wrappers; 34 pp. Text block somewhat curved; still very good.
Single issue of the scarce Armenian communist children's journal, published in Tbilisi, Georgia from 1923 to 1941. A bibliography of the journal, as well as the books published by the eponymous publisher, appeared in 1983 (Kh. H. Barseghyan, "Karmir tsiler" handesi matenagitut yun, 1923-1941, Erevan). We have been unable to identify the artist. We cannot trace any copies of this periodical in KVK or OCLC, nor in Russian libraries. The only holdings are at the Armenian National Library, although they, too, are incomplete.
