Second, corrected edition of this collection of four short stories, which had initially been published in Russian periodicals, and were first collected and published as one volume in London in 1854.

The collection contains the stories ‘Dolg prezhde vsego’, ‘Povrezhdennyi’, ‘Mimoezdom’, and the well-known ‘Doktor Krupov’, which ‘presents the idea of madness as purely relative and suggests the presence of epidemic madness in society itself and the whole course of human history. The Voltairean sarcasm of this story was only too apparent to the contemporary reader’ (Cambrdge History of Russian Literature).

OCLC records two copies only, at the Staatsbibliothek Berlin and University of Leipzig, and two copies of the first edition, at Harvard and Columbia.
