The Brusov Science Center Fund contains a valuable scientific and bibliographic material. To note, it is unique in the world. The poet’s all first lifetime publications, the original manuscripts, which can give insight on the poet’s creative laboratory, as well as the archive of the sourcebooks and photocopies of the poet’s correspondence (in part, Brusov’s correspondence with the renowned representatives of the European and Armenian literature and culture), daguerreotypes, microfilms and other valuable materials have been collected here.
We carefully store almost all of Brusov’s publications. The matter concerns his intravital editions (many of which are rare books) and modern publications. The intravital publications of the works by the Russian poets and writers-contemporaries of Brusov, in particular, Andrei Bely, Igor Severyanin, Fyodor Sologub, Vladislav Khodasevich, Leonid Andreev, Vyacheslav Ivanov and others are also available in the Fund. The critical writings on the works of Brusov and other
|representatives of Russian literature of early XX century are represented in the Fund.
The books of the Armenian poets, writers, historians and literary critics, with dedicatory inscriptions of the authors donated to Brusov are of particular value. Eight volumes of «Sirin» publication, a complete set of «Vesy» magazine taken from the poet’s personal library, as well as a unique collection of notes on the texts of the poet’s sourcebooks and translated verses and other materials are the valuable relics contributed to the Fund by Brusov’s relatives.
The socio-political, literary-critical and fiction magazines published in late XIX-early XX century, in particular, «The World of Art», «The Russian Thought», «Apollo» and others are also preserved at our Fund. The Fund’s materials are carefully stored, systematized, processed by scientists; a number of their photocopies and Xerox copies are represented at the Brusov museum. The above-mentioned materials are used by the Armenian and foreign academics.
A valuable bibliographical collection and rare books stored at the Fund provide enhanced opportunities for the academic experience.
