    LA RARISSIME ÉDITION ORIGINALE (Rowell-Wye ne mentionne que la seconde de la même année) de cette publication futuriste qui reproduit des oeuvres de Gribatnikov, Grigoriev, Mikhelson, Semenov et d'autres. "No survey of the impact of futurism on Russian society is complete without taking into consideration futurist forgeries and hoaxes... The best known of these literary frauds was Neofuturizm, published 1913 in Kazan. It is a big book of about 100 pages, and nearly a quarter of it is occupied by a manifesto 'Nemnogim, kotorye poimut nas' (To the few who will understand us), signed by A. Gribatnikov. In the manifesto the neofuturists divorce themselves from the rest of the avant-garde ("they are seeking - we have found"), but they do not reject it : Burliuk is accepted; Khlebnikov is called a genius" (Markov, Russian Futurism, p. 221sq). Voir Rowell-Wye 57.
