St. Petersburg "Symposium" Publisher's edition of VN's Russian
Works (fwd)
Date
Body
NEW EDITOR's NOTE. The system of ordering the new Russian
Collected VN edition direct from St. Petersburg seems to be working
smoothly. NABOKV-L has now had several reports from those who ordered
volumes and paid by personal check. The edition is described below.
----------------------------------

EDITOR's NOTE. "Symposium" Publisher is in the process of putting out an
excellent 5-volume set of Nabokov's Russian works. (They have previously
put out a five volume set of the English works translated into Russian.)
The second volume of the current Russian edition has recently appeared.
The Russian volumes contain not only much scarce (and hitherto uncollected
material) but are meticulously edited and annotated by leading Russian
Nabokov specialists under the supervision of Alexander Dolinin. I urge
that this edition, authorized by the Nabokv Estate, become the "citation
standard" for all scholarly work on the Russian Nabokov.
Due to bureaucratic problems the publisher can accept only
personal checks made out to Alexandra Glebovskaya and sent to the U.S.
address below.
NABOKV-L will run the Table of Contents of volumes 1&2 as a
separate item.

We are happy to announce that the 2nd Volume of the Russian edition
has been published and available. We hope that Vol.3 will be ready
round Christmas. Vol.2 appeared in time for the Frankfurt bookfair,
which we attended.
Unfortunately, the credit card situation still seems to be at the dead
end, so meanwhile we can accept only checks. Please find below the
message we have forwarded to all our customers.

Attached is the contents of the volumes of both the Russian and (just
in case) the English collections.

Dear Nabokovians:

We want to apologize for the long delay in fulfilling your orders for
VLADIMIR NABOKOV'’S COLLECTED RUSSIAN LANGUAGE WORKS. Weunderestimated by
far the difficulties of receiving non-cash payment (i.e. credit card) from
the US in Russia. AT this point, we can accept only personal checks.
We are happy to inform you that Volume 2 of COLLECTED WORKS has been
printed 10 days ago and is now available. Volume 3 will be available at
around Christmas; we will advise you as soon as possible.

We are also happy to present another edition we found to be of
considerable interest to the Nabokovian scholars and fans all over the
world:
NABOKOV'’S PARADISE LOST (FAMILY ESTATES IN RUSSIA) (published by Liga
Plus, St. Petersburg; available both in English and in Russian as TEN'’
RUSSKOI VETKI) is a deluxe illustrated edition, comprising a remarkable
selection of archival and new photographs pertaining to the three suburban
estates of the extended Nabokov family: Vyra, Batovo and Rozhdestveno, the
background of Nabokov'’s idyllic childhood, lovingly described in Speak,
Memory, The Gift, The Defense and other novels. A number of archival
photographs have never been reproduced before.
The selection of photographs, as well as the accompanying text, were
provided by Alexander Semochkin, Chief Curator of Nabokov’s Memorial Estate
in Vyra.
5.5 x 8.5 in., hard cover, 112 pages.
