  • Notes: Description based on print version record.
    Printed on the paste side of sheets of wallpaper. The ochre machine-made paper is block-printed in red, white, blue, green and black in a pattern of large flowers. The upper right corner of each leaf is cut at a 45-degree angle, producing five-sided leaves with three short sides and two long. Exceptionally, the recto of the first leaf is the pattern side of the wallpaper, so as to form the front cover. Mounted near the top is a printed sheet of thin greenish paper giving author, title, imprint and price (1 r. 10). The author's name appears beneath the mounted sheet, printed over the wallpaper pattern. On the verso is the relief-printed ill. after Vladimir Burli︠u︡k. The two additional ill., after David Burli︠u︡k, appear on two of the subsequent leaves.
    Six leaves have "ferro-concrete" poems, in which the words appear in compartments separated by straight-line "reinforcing rods." They are: Bani, Konstantinopolʹ, Kabarė Zon, Kartinīi︠a︡ (or Dvoret︠s︡ S.I. Shchukin), T︠S︡irk Nikitina, Skėting rin[g]. The remaining 8 leaves have 6 poems that, while typographically inventive, are arranged as conventional sequences of lines: Telefon no. 2B = 128, Tango s korovami, Vyzov, Bosikom po krapive, Kinematograf, Polet Vasi Kamenskago na aėroplane v Varshave.
    Last leaf has two publisher's notices. The first is for no. 1/2 of Pervyĭ zhurnal russkikh futuristov, which includes variants of three poems from the present work (Sketing rin[g], Tango s korovami, Vyzov). The second notice is for Kamenskiĭ's novel Zemli︠a︡nka (St. Petersburg, 1910). At the foot of the leaf is the name of the Moscow printer of the present work, N.M. I︠A︡kovlev.
    Rozanov reports 34 p. (i.e. 17 leaves, rather than 18).
    From an ed. of 300; see Compton, citing Knizhnai︠a︡ letopisʹ for 27 March-3 April 1914, no. 8856.
