Das morphonologische System der russischen Sprache.
First edition, published as the second part of Description phonologique du russe moderne; the first part, Roman Jakobson’s ‘Phonologie général du mot’, was published later.
‘The Prague school was a group of Czech and other scholars … doctrinally centred round Prince Nikolai Trubetzkoy [1890–1938], a professor in Vienna 1923–38, Vilem Mathesius, and Roman Jakobson, which held regular meetings and published Travaux du cercle linguistique de Prague. Their main interest lay in phonological theory, and the most important work associated with the school was Trubetzkoy’s Grundzüge der Phonologie (principles of phonology), on which he was working up to his death’ (Robins, p. 229).

Alice in a World of Wonderlands: the Translations of Lewis Carroll’s Masterpiece.
This is the most extensive analysis ever done of translations of any single English language novel. On 4 October 1866 Charles Lutwidge Dodgson/Lewis Carroll wrote to his publisher Macmillan stating "Friends here [in Oxford] seem to think that the book is untranslatable." But his friends were wrong, as this book shows with translations in 174 languages.
