Iosif Vissarionovich Stalin, Short Biography, State Political Literature Publishing House, Moscow, Second Edition, 1947, 243pp, 14 rotogravure illustrations, Russian text, hard covered, 5 1/4" x 7 7/8" format.
Official, approved version of the "great leader's" life. The photos run from him at fifteen to the classic huge group shot of him and his WW2 commanders. Some pictures are among the retouched photos exposed as frauds in the classic book about Soviet photographic fakery, The Commissar Vanishes.

The book is in excellent, like new condition. The cover shows only mild bumps to the corners, no other wear. The internal pages are literally pristine. The binding is still very tight - could it be that the original owner never got around to reading it?
