EDNote: Thanks to Alexander Drescher (see below) for this encouragement.  The photos in the post mentioned here were sent by Evgeny Belodubrovsky, a leading St. Petersburg bibliographer and Nabokovian who has published several re-issues of important Nabokoviana.  This latest is the recent republication of The Ordeal of a Diplomat, by Nabokov's uncle Konstantin Dmitrievich Nabokov. Having served in Portsmouth, England, Washington DC, Calcutta, and Belgium, he first published his memoir in 1921. This book is available in English, as well, and can be viewed on-line; for example three versions are linked here: http://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/000836642 

It appears to have been published first in Russian in 1921, and then in English in 1929--and I can't quickly figure out in whose translation (KD Nabokov's own?). Can anyone add more specifics?

Perhaps I am not the only subscriber who does not read Russian and finds these images interesting.  Elucidation?
