On 3 October, an exhibition devoted to the 120th anniversary of the birth of a great Russian poet Sergey Yesenin (1895–1925) opened in the Rare Books section of the Voronezh State University Regional Scientific Library.
Among the exhibits are the 1916 issue of the Letopis journal and the 1915 issue of Russkaya Mysl journal, both of which published Yesenin's poems. The Rare Books section of the library has lifetime editions of the poet's works, including unique exemplars with his autographs for a famous historian and a VSU professor Ilya Borozdin ("Confessions of a Hooligan" (1921), "Treryadnitsa" (1921)).
One of the sections of the exhibition shows the poet's miniature editions. The exhibition visitors also have a chance to familiarize themselves with a number of monographs about Yesenin's life and work. They come from private libraries and are kept in the Rare Books section of the Regional Scientific Library.
The exhibition will be open to the public until 13 November at 24 Prospect Revolutsii, Room 222.
