[Title in Russian:] OSHIBKA SMERTI [Death's Mistake]
Moscow: "Liren," 1917.. 16pp. Octavo. Printed drab wrappers. Wrappers a bit dust-smudged with a few very faint splashmarks, small ink inscription in corner of first leaf, wrappers slightly rubbed and used at edges, but a near very good copy. First edition of this burlesque drama by one of the central figures of Russian Futuristy, supplemented by 4pp of his poems. The play pursues the theme of the defiance of Death, with Miss Death presiding over a gathering at a tavern and dying as a consequence of the arrival of a thirteenth guest. OCLC/Worldcat locates 6 copies (two of which appear to be photocopies). MARKOV, RUSSIAN FUTURISM: A HISTORY, pp.300-1.
