The Island of Sakhalin


Anton Chekhov; Luba & Michael Terpak (trans)


The Folio Society 1989

Binding:  Hardback  |  Condition: Very Good  | 

Pleasant Folio Society edition of Chekhov's fascinating study of the island of Sakhalin, a remote colony of exiles, prisoners and dwindling natives. Seeking to expose the circumstances and tribulations of its inhabitants, Chekhov embarked on a arduous journey and documented life on the Island, effectively taking a census and accumulating swathes of statistical data. With an introduction by Irina Ratushinskaya. With b/w images from the island. Complete with slipcase. A small mark to bottom of spine. But contents clean and prim. Very good overall.
