Sady Dofina [The Gardens of the Dauphin].
First (and only?) edition. The poems are divided into two sections: ‘The Gardens of the Dauphin’ and ‘Sacred Spring’. Aside from these restful, often religious lyrics, Korolevich evidently had an interest in the cinema; he later published works on director Erich von Stroheim and silent-film actress Leatrice Joy.
OCLC locates copies at Harvard, Stanford, and Bayerische Staatsbibliothek only. Tarasenkov p. 188 (1000 copies); not in Kilgour.
