    Boris Pasternak Addressed Envelope. One page, 6" x 4.5", Moscow, nd. This envelope was addressed by the famous Russian poet and writer Boris Pasternak. Written in Cyrillic, this envelope is postmarked and stamped and trimmed from its backing. Pasternak is regarded as one of the finest poets to come out of Russia in the last few centuries. He is highly regarded in Russia for his poetry, namely, "My Sister Life." In the West, however, he is widely acclaimed for the novel "Doctor Zhivago." Pasternak was influenced by many things, including Neo-Kantian philosophy and the Futurist poets like Mayakovsky and Blok.

    The envelope is in very good condition; the envelope has been cut and the entire back is missing; edges are slightly worn with small tears; yellowing has begun to set in and paper is slightly brittle. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
