ALEPH BET ARTZAH RAYD

ABC. (HEBREW) ALEPH BET ARTZAH REHD [ALPHABET OF THE RED LAND]. [Jerusalem: Marcus], (1959). 8vo (7 1/4 x 8"), red boards, color pictorial paste-on, VG+. Written by Shlomo Skolsky and illustrated with charming color lithographs on every page by Mira Luba. Each letter has a large central illustration surrounded with a border of smaller pictures - all richly colored and well printed. The letter "C" is "Cushim", Hebrew slang for Blacks and depicted are 2 stereotypical little African children. The last picture shows little children dancing around a tree. All of the pictures have at least one picture of Jewish items and all have a naivety typical of the era. Quite scarce.
