An-Sky is one name for Shlomye-Zanvil Rappaport, who wrote "The Dybbuk", and this book is a comprehensive look (156 pages, plus introductory material) at his work, illlustrated with many photographs (from former USSR archives) and color plates. The source of much of the material is the Collections of the State Ethnographic Museum in St. Petersburg. Text primarily in Hebrew. The illustrations tell a compelling story as well. In Very Good-to-near-Fine condition with wear to corners, small closed tear to spine tail.
