AKHMATOVA, ANNA (ANNA ANDREYEVNA GORENKO). 1889-1966.
Manuscript Poem Signed (with monogram), 1 p, 8vo, Iz Leningradskikh elegii [Elegy of Leningrad], n.p., n.d., on lined paper removed from a notebook with three lines partially erased. Overall discoloring with water stain along right margin.
Provenance: Vladimir Grigorevich Admoni.

This poem appears in the poet's collected works, but the three deleted lines are missing and would suggest that this is an early, if not the earliest, draft of the finished poem. She apparently gave it to her dear friend Admoni. A typescript manuscript of this poem is preserved in the Glebe Struve Papers in the Hoover Institution.
