Catalogue Note

The first edition was published in 1913 but this enlarged 1914 edition is not an exact reprint, the order of the entries being changed, text altered or left out, and new selections and illustrations added rather randomly by the acting editor-publisher, Shershenevich. This later printing is more scarce than the 1913 issue.

Apart from the Burliuks, other contributors were K. Bol’shakov, V. Kamenskii, A. Kruchenykh, B. Livshits, V. Mayakovsky, V. Khlebnikov and V. Shershenevich. This journal was the only major attempt to bring all the Russian Futurists together in one volume and to show to the world the achievements of the movement. In this light a list of Russian Futurist works to date was printed at the end of the volume. The outbreak of the First World War and splits within the movement itself caused its break-up and thus ironically this journal marked not the start of the flowering of Russian Futurism but its demise.
