Descripción

Original grey wraps, printed paper label tipped onto front cover; pp. 28. From a limited edition of 700 copies, among the smallest print runs of any book in the Flegon collection. OCLC locates 5 copies. Alex Flegon founded the Flegnon Press in London, becoming the first independent Russian-language publisher in the West -- his rivals, including YMCA Press, were largely subsidized by various political organizations, notably the CIA. Vendor's mark on last leaf; some light rubbing along edges of covers; otherwise a lovely copy. Alec Flegon (1924-2003), an emigre from Romania, became a controversial London-based publisher of samizdat literature and Soviet trade directories during the Cold War. He was the first to publish Bulgakov's "Heart of a Dog" and Solzhenitsyn's "One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich," and he later published four Russian-language versions of Pasternak's "Dr. Zhivago," including one under a Moscow imprint, lest Russian buyers be accused of importing anti-Soviet literature. His remarkable success at repeatedly getting manuscripts out of the Soviet Union led to the widespread view that he must have had contacts in the KGB, and he used this reputation to his advantage, garnering free publicity for his publications. He was accused of copyright infringement and/or piracy on more than one occasion (the most famous example being his feuds with Solzhenitsyn, and Svetlana Stalin). Nonetheless, his perseverance made him an important figure in the publishing history of Russian literature in the West -- he was the first independent Russian-language publisher in the West and remained so for decades. (His rivals were largely subsidized by various political organizations, notably the CIA.). N° de ref. de la librería R5107
