RARE FIRST ISSUE OF THE IMPORTANT SHORT-LIVED RUSSIAN AVANT-GARDE JOURNAL. With contributions by V. MAYAKOVSKY, D. BURLIUK, V. KAMENSKY and others. This important literary document begins with a fiery Futurist Manifesto signed by Burliuk, Mayakovsky and Kamensky. It is followed by Decree No. 1: the first declaration of the Flying Federation of Futurists, that art must be taken out of palaces, salons, museums and libraries and put in the streets. There are also poems by Burliuk and Mayakovsky's "Nash marsh" (Our March) which was later set to music by avant-garde composer A. LURYE. Mayakovsky also provided an open letter to the Workers. Not in MoMA.
