ALEKSANDROVA, Zinaida and Dmitry GORLOV.
Мишкины соседи [Little Bear’s neighbours].
First edition. A very nice copy of this collection of verses for young children, composed by one of the most prolific Soviet children’s poets, and illustrated by one of the most prolific of Soviet children’s artists.

SHERSHENEVICH, Vadim Gabrielevich.
Bystr’. Monologicheskaia drama [Rapids. A monological drama].
First edition: a verse drama from the radical young writer. One of 500 numbered copies. During his career, Shershenevich (1893–1942) was influenced in turn by futurism, imagism, and symbolism but ‘in its essentials his poetry did not change with his allegiance to new groups. He always expressed both the angry resentment of the avant-gardist and a lonely sense of alienation from society’ (Bristol, p. 245).
