This blog will consist of translations of Russian historical and anthropological works from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Edits and extraneous commentary will be kept at a minimum. If the reader is interested in a particular writer found here, Google them!

This blog is by an amateur! I translate from Russian to keep in practice. I translate from earlier texts because they are interesting and in the public domain. A big thanks to Google for making so many materials available on Google Books. Hopefully, non-readers of Russian might find these translations of interest. All constructive comments are appreciated.

Comments can and will be deleted according to the discretion of the blogger, i.e. me.
