Maxim Gorky

Important Russian/Soviet author and activist (1868–1936). Though his criticism of the Communist government led to a relationship marked by conflict and unease, he was ultimately embraced (though closely monitored) by the Stalinist regime, and Stalin himself was a pallbearer at Gorki’s funeral. ALS in Russian, one page both sides, 5.5 x 8.5, Hotel Continental, Stockholm letterhead, November 5, 1921. Untranslated letter. In very good condition, with central horizontal and vertical folds, and uniform toning, with a few heavier spots. A bold and highly sought-after letter written during Gorky’s second period of exile from the Soviet Union. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
