Vozmezdiye [Retribution] -- Two Copies
Cover design and vignettes by V. A. Zamirailo. Foreword by Blok. Original wrappers; pp. 111. Spine chipped; yapp edges worn; covers lightly dust-soiled and rubbed. SOLD WITH A SECOND, THICK PAPER COPY, with untrimmed fore-edge, tipped frontispiece (postcard of early Petersburg in pretty muted colors -- issued thus?), and bookseller's stamp (1966 sale). Front cover detached; rear cover soiled; spine reinforced with tape. Nearly twice the bulk of the trade issue, as if in the manner of a French "edition originale." First edition of Blok's verse epic, which he worked on from 1910 until his death in 1921. Fragments were published during his lifetime, but the poem did not appear in its entirety until this posthumous edition was published by Alkonost in 1922. Kilgour 134; Tarasenkov, p. 63. We find no reference to a thick-paper copy, pointing to the possibility of different issues. First Edition, First Printing, Ordinary Issue. Bookseller Inventory # R5104
