Remizov, Aleksei - Kukkha. Rozanovy Pisma (Kukkha. Rozanov's Letters)

Berlin, Z. I. Grzhebina, 1923. First edition; 6 1/2 x 4 1/2; pp. [8], 9-124, [4]; striped, yellow-and-orange paper over boards (also published with the paper in dark- and light-blue); title in brown; rebacked with a thin strip of silk; a bit of rubbing along edges; occasional minor spotting to a few pages; in very good condition. Dubbed "especially Rozanovian" and called: "..perhaps the most salacious literary memoir in Russian.." modernist author Aleksei Remizov's (1877 - 1957) "Kukkha" weaved letters, memories, and imaginary conversations with the author's deceased friend - controversial author and philosopher Vasilii Rozanov (1856 - 1919) - lamenting on the hardships of life in exile. Allegedly, Kukkha was the name Remizov gave Rozanov, when the former elected him an honorary member of the imaginary "Great and Free Monkey Federation." (Crone, Anna. “Remizov's Kukkha: Rozanov's ‘Trousers’ Revisited.” Russian Literature Triquarterly, vol. 19, no. 2, 1986.). Very good .
