Kratkii kurs nauki o stikhe ... Chast’ pervaia. Chastnaia metrika i ritmika russkago iazyka [A short course in the study of poetry... Chapter One. On metre and rhythm in the Russian language (All published)].
Very rare first edition, the only chapter to be published of Briusov’s ‘short course in the study of poetry’. ‘Bryusov’s contributions to Russian literature were many and profound in his roles as poet, novelist, short story writer, essayist, literary historian, translator, polemicist, organizer, and teacher of poets greater than himself, such as Bely and Blok … Bryusov had an abiding concern for the image of the poet and it was because of this concern that he successfully expended so much energy in raising the stature of modern poetry in Russia to the position he felt it deserved’ (Terras).
Only a photocopy and a microfilm listed on OCLC. Not in Kilgour.
