Autograph Manuscript Signed ("V. Kaverin"), 16 pp rectos only, 4to, n.p., c.1966, entitled "Desjatik passniki" (Tenth Graders), small paper clip stain to first page.

Working draft, with frequent corrections for an article which appeared in the popular youth magazine Smena, in August 1966. Tenth grade is the final year of mandatory schooling in Russia, so the subject of Kavarin's manuscript are the young Russians who will be adults tomorrow.
