Notes

First edition in English, first impression. "The present volume... is an attempt to bridge a gap in international literary relations, all the more marked because of the rapid growth both at home and in Western Europe of Tchekoff's fame as short-story writer and playwright" (Translator's Note). With the publisher's perforated "presentation copy" stamp to the title page. Though without mark of ownership, the book originally belonged to Edmund C. Yates - the son of Edmund H. Yates, editor of World magazine and a close friend of Dickens.
