Paris: I.E. Povolotzky, 1928. Item #691
160 pp. 18,8x12 cm. In original printed wrappers. The spine is restored. Wrapper is slightly soiled.
Rare. One of 500 copies produced. The first edition of Tsvetaeva’s last book of poems, including the poems written after she emmigrated to France from Soviet Russia. Tsvetaeva wanted to publish this book in Russia in 1924, inquiring in Gosizdat about the publication (mentioning that there are no political poems in the book), but the permission was not given and four years later the Paris edition appeared.
All of Tsvetaeva’s émigré editions were banned for circulation in USSR.
