Abstract. For more than a hundred years many works of the classics of Crimean Tatar literature of the early XX century have remained inaccessible to their contemporaries. One of  such authors  is  Abdulhakim Aji Arif oglu  Khilmiy (1884–1962). The article is devoted to the scientific development of the writer of the period 1914-1917. The sources were both:  newspaper and archival materials related to this period. Also involved are  the published works of Khilmiy`s contemporaries. As an example, is cited  a small work by the author of “Revolutionary excitement” (“Inkilyabiy asabiyetler”), published in 1917 and  unknown to modern researches. Transliteration of the text from the Arabic script is accompanied by glossaries of rare Arab-Persian borrowings in the Crimean Tatar language.

Keywords: Crimean Tatar classics of the early XX century, new research and new discoveries of works in the Crimean Tatar language, artistic heritage of A. Khilmiy
