First edition, very rare. Tretyakov wrote these lyrics during an extended visit to China in 1924, during which he collected material for his subsequent work on contemporary China. The name of the title poem (Rychi, Kitai!) was used again for Tretyakov’s famous avant-garde play of the same name, published in 1930.

Tarasenkov p. 374. OCLC records a copy at Harvard and a photocopy at Stanford.
