First edition, containing three cycles of verse by the leading Symbolist: ‘Vneshnii krug’ (Outer circle), ‘Put’’ (Path), and ‘Predel’ (Limit). This was one of the last collections of Sologub’s poems to appear before the state banned any further publication of his work in 1923. He continued to write ‘for the drawer’, and even became chairman of the Petersburg Writers’ Union in 1926, only to die the following year.

Getty 741; Tarasenkov, p. 351; not in Kilgour.
