In the article, day after day, the process of preparation and observance of the 25th anniversary of Bunin’s literary activity is discussed in every detail. Based on the numerous publications in the national periodicals of 1912—1913, as well as a number of little-known archival materials, the author introduces significant correction in the prevailing ideas about one of the most important events in the pre­revolutionary biography of the writer and proves that the jubilee celebrations were of all-Russian nature.
