Tri razskaza (vospreshcheny russkoi tsenzuroi) [Three short stories, prohibited by the Russian censor]
Johannes Räde, Berlin 1902 - Octavo (19.5 × 13 cm). Original printed wrappers; 40 pp. Publisher's catalog. A very good, uncut and unopened copy; old pencil marks to upper front wrapper. Second printing of this scarce collection of three short stories by Maksim Gorky, which were illegally distributed in Russia, sometimes after first appearing in provincial newspapers: "Pisatel' kotoryi zaznalsia," "Pered litsom zhizni," and "Vesenniia melodiia." Copies were prepared by hand or using a hectograph duplicator, and earned Gorky great popularity. The composition of the texts issued by this, and other German publishers, differs from Gorky's own definitive versions. With an interesting postscript by Mikhail Sukennikov (1877- 1948), a Russian writer and playwright, who analyzes Gorky's recent writing in light of student protests in Kiev, Kharkov, and elsewhere as a much-needed indictment of a complacent Russian intelligentsia. Cover illustrated with an unattributed early drawing of Gorky. In North America, KVK, OCLC show the copies at Amherst, Harvard, and Indiana. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
