BELYI, ANDREI (BORIS NIKOLAEVICH BUGAEV). 1880-1934.
Autograph Manuscript, 1 p, narrow 4to, n.p., dated 1918, being four stanzas, 16 lines of the poem "To Anthroposophy."

A distinctly symbolist poetic fragment in the bold hand of Belyi, possibly a printer's retained copy. The years 1910-1916 Belyi spent abroad and lived several years in Dornach, Switzerland, as a disciple of Rudolf Steiner, the founder of anthroposophy. Belyi returned to Russia in 1916 but his wife Asia remained in Dornach for the rest of her life. In Russia he wrote four poems under the same title where Anthroposophy is addressed as a woman.
