BRODSKY, JOSEPH, AND MARINA I. TSVETAEVA.
Stikhotvoreniya i poemy v pyati tomakh. [Verses and Poems in Five Volumes.] New York: Russica Publishers, 1980.
5 volumes. Compiled and edited by Alexander Sumerkin. Preface by Joseph Brodsky. Biographical essay by Victoria Schweitzer. Original wrappers. Mild sunning to some wrappers.

FIRST EDITION. Joseph Brodsky thought the ill-fated Tsvetaeva was "one of the most rhythmically diverse poets. Rhythmically rich and generous." He even preferred her to W. H. Auden. Her work of course was banned when he first read it in samizdat form.
