By publishing this facsimile of the exceedingly rare first Russian translation of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (1879), the LCSNA has made this rarity readily available to scholars and enthusiasts for the first time. Only two copies are known to have survived–one is in the Alfred C. Berol Collection at the Fales Library of New York University and one at the Saltykov-Shchedrin Library in St. Petersburg. The LCSNA facsimile volume includes an introduction by Prof. Nina Demurova, a famed contemporary translator and literary critic, and an essay by Russian literature scholar Fan Parker.
