Carl Einstein, an anarchist writer, friend of George Grosz, Georges Braque and Picasso, Jean Renoir collaborator, art historian, lived through the wars and revolutions that shook Europe during the first part of the twentieth century. A volunteer during the Spanish civil revolution in 1936, he went to Barcelona to fight in the ranks of the Confédération nationale du travail (National Labor Confederation), before joining the Groupe international de la Colonne Durruti (Durruti Column International Group). Of Jewish faith, he committed suicide in 1940 to avoid failing into the hands of the Nazis.
Magnificent copy perfectly set in a full inlaid box binding signed by Georges Leroux, one of the greatest binders of the second part of the 20th century.
