First edition, rare, the second of two annual literary almanacks with this title, with poems by Blok, Gorodetsky and Kuzmin, and short fiction by Chulkov, Gusev, Count Aleksei Nikolaevich Tolstoy and Ivan Poroshin.

Aleksei Tolstoy had published his first substantial book, Povesti i rasskazy, in the previous year. Here, ‘Katen’ka’ is an early adventure story subtitled ‘from the notebook of an officer’; set in the eighteenth century, it looks forward to his famous Peter the First (1929), the most popular historical novel of the Soviet era.
