Our Notes & References

Charming large-format edition of Pushkin’s famous poem ‘Gypsies’ first published in 1827, and here illustrated by the Estonian artist Friedrich Ludwig von Maydell (1795-1846), who created the drawings during Pushkin’s lifetime. The text was published preserving all the orthographic features as it was in the second publication of 1835.

A fresh example of this production of good quality, appearing the year of Lenin’s death, just after Russia’s brutal Civil War.
