About this Item

[RUSSIAN POETRY: WOMEN]. [AKHMATOVA, Anna]. CHETKI [Title in Russian]. [ROSARY]. [Poems] by Ahha Axmatoba [Anna Andreyevna Akhmatova]. [date of publication taken from OCLC (which lists it variously as 1920? and 1921); originally published in St. Petersburg in 1914; text entirely in Russian Cyrillic script]. Twelvemo, limp black ribbed cloth, stamped in gilt on spine and front cover, 118 pages [pagination: [ii](blank), [3-6](title; blank; chapter heading; blank), 7-118(text)]. Anna Akhmatova (1889-1966) is the literary pseudonym of Russian poet, Anna Andreevna Gorenko [she took Akhmatova from her Tatar grandmother]. She was born, in 1889, near Odessa, Ukraine, started writing poetry at the age of 11, and published her first book of poems, 'Evening,' in 1912, to popular and critical success. Beginning in the early 1920s, publication of her work, with a few exceptions, was banned by the Soviet regime. She died in 1966, in Domodedovo. Moderate wear on spine, with few nicks to cloth at crown and edge (near rear cover), few nicks at tips of corners, scattered foxing to a few leaves, else a very good copy.
