Description of the Collection

            The Autograph Collection consists of one autograph letter signed by postsymbolist Russian poet and critic, Vladislav Khodasevich (1886-1939).

            The letter was written during Khodasevich's trip to Italy in the summer of 1911.  Once there he joined the company of old Moscow friends: Boris Grivtsov, Evgenia Muratova, Pavel Muratov, Mikhail Osorgin and Boris Zaitsev.  The dates of the journey are unknown.  Their itinerary included a visit to Genoa and an extended sojourn in Venice.
