Where authors and readers come together!

This is merely to remind Gentle Reader that Your Intrepid Reporter is planning to issue a 2015 edition of his famous (among the cognoscenti) book, Izucheniya istorii astronomii v Rossii v pervoi polovine devyatnatsatogo veka: Sokolovskaia’s account of FGW Struve is accompanied by an essay of the author/editor/translator, and a selection from Bienemann’s essential work on the old Baltic nobility of the then (1st Half of the 19th century) Russian Empire.
