Izbrannye stikhi russkikh poetov. Seriia sbornikov po temam. Rossiia [Selections of verse by Russian poets. A series of collections by theme. Russia].
First edition of a patriotic anthology of poems on the theme of ‘Russia’, organised chronologically from Odoevsky to Kliuev. The theme is religiously adhered to, with contributions from both dead and living authors, including, as well as those listed above, Aksakov, Bely, Soloviev, Fofanov, Sologub, Briusov, Vyacheslav Ivanov, Sasha Cherny, etc. Ehrenburg was then in exile in Paris, and the two poems by him here (written 1912-3) appear for the first time in Russia.
The publisher M. M. Stasiulevich was founder and editor of pre-Revolutionary Russia’s premier literary journal, Vestnik Evropy. He does not appear to have issued further titles in the series, though he published 2 volumes of a ‘Series of collections by period’ instead of ‘by theme’, in the same year.
