Description

The first edition of a rare and important booklet with poems by a famous Croatian poet Vladimir Nazor was published by an underground partisan press and dedicated to the youth, fighting for the resistance. The book was printed in the woods of Javornica in Croatia

Vladimir Nazor (1876-1949) is one of the most known and productive Croatian writers, poets and translators of the 20th century. His first work was published in 1900.

Nazor was not involved in the politics until WWII, when he joined the partisans. He served as the first Croatian head of state after the war.

This is an exceedingly rare first edition, published during the war by the Association of Anti-Fascist Youth. The more common following editions were issued in London during the war by the Croatian immigrants.
