As a matter of fact, the Russian idea of literary men is that they all hold some government or other appointment, on the committee of censorship, for example,-some ratable position. Upon this they can depend for a livelihood, aside from the product of their brains; which is practical, and affords a firm foundation upon which to execute caprices.

It has seemed to me that there is room for a book which shall impart an idea of a few of the ordinary conditions of life and of the characters of the inhabitants, illustrated by apposite anecdotes from my personal experience. For this purpose, a collection of detached pictures is better than a continuous narrative of travel. I am told that I must abuse Russia, if I wish to be popular in America.

Although advertised on the cover as a "High Quality Paperback", the print of this edition is that of a faint typewriter type font, single-spaced text that is difficult to read. The book is too large in size to handle easily --altogether a disappointment. Hapgood's narrative, however, is wonderfully detailed and well-written.
The book is typical turn of the century babble with the sentence structure far more complex then it needs to be. The am forcing myself to try to complete the book.
