Title: Plays by Leonid Andreyeff: The Black Maskers, The Life of Man, The Sabine Women
Description: New York, Charles Scribner's Sons. 1915, First English Edition. Hardcover, 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Translated by C.L. Meader and F.N. Scott, with Introduction By V.V. Brusyanin. Playwright and short-story writer who led the Expressionism movement in the national literature. He was active between the revolution of 1905 and the Communist revolution which finally overthrew the tsarist government. Born in the Oryol province of Russia, Andreyev originally studied law in Moscow and St. Petersburg, but abandoned his unremunerative law practice to pursue a literary career. He became police-court reporter for a Moscow daily, performing the routine of his humble calling without attracting any particular attention. His first story published was About a Poor Student, a narrative based upon his own experiences. It was not, however, until Gorky discovered him by stories appearing in the Moscow Courier and elsewhere that Andreyev's literary career really began. Good/No Jacket.
