A book publisher contract between Chaim Nahman Bialik and Israel Chaim Tawiow, Moscow 1917

Aside from being a literary giant, Haim Nahman Bialik was a book publisher in Moscow and published, alongside his partner, Y. H. Ravnitzky, many popular books in his publishing house מוריה.

Below, is a contract I found, written between Bialik and Tawiow, awarding Tawiow 15% of the list price of the books he authored, that Bialik was publishing.

Shortly after, in 1921, the communist authorities closed the publishing house, and Bialik left Russia for good.
