A complete run of 12 issues in 10 volumes (each issue approx. 24 pp.) of the Dutch-language left-wing journal, under the editorial direction of Frans Goedhart, Jef Last, Freek van Leeuwen, Niko Rost, Maurits Dekker, and other members of the workers'-writers' collective "Links Richten", containing poetry, book reviews, short stories, and essays on Communist literature, the first 5 volumes subtitled "Maandblad Uitgegeven Door Het Arbeiders Schrijvers Collectief 'Links Richten'", with the other 5 volumes each being devoted to a single topic, including the Navy, anti-Fascism, black culture, the theater, and anti-war. Not illustrated. 8vo. Orig. photomontage illus. wrpps., some minor fraying along spines, some minor scattered foxing. Amsterdam 1932-1933. The Links Richten collective was founded in 1930, after a large number of Dutch writers found themselves drawn to events in Russia and sympathizing with the revolution. Many were also members of the Communist Party of Holland. Prior to the release of the first issue of Links Richten, the collective published a manifesto in response to a rent strike in Rotterdam. The collective dissolved after a disagreement over the cause of a fire at the Reichstag in Berlin and the involvement of a member of the CPH in collusion with the Nazis. During its short run, many noted figures contributed to the journal, including Joris Ivens, Gerard Vanter (GJM van het Reve), Bertus Meyer, Maxim Gorky, Langston Hughes, Theun de Vries, Peter Alma, and multiple others.
