Katalog izdatel’stva “Vsemirnaia Literatura” pri narodnom komissariate po prosveshcheniiu. V stupitel’naia stat’ia M. Gor’kogo. Catalogue des éditions de la “Littérature Mondiale” paraissant sous le patronnage du Commissariat de l’Instruction publique. Préface de M. Gorky.
A catalogue marking the launch of a series of popular editions of the classics of world literature by the publishing house ‘Vsemirnaia Literatura’ (‘World Literature’), established by Gorky in 1919. Following a preface by Gorky, printed in Russian, French, English, and German, the catalogue lists works of French, English, American, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Swedish, Norwegian, and Danish literature published from the late 18th century to the present, or as the preface explains, between the French Revolution and the Russian Revolution. The works, listed in Russian and also in their original language, were to be published in a popular (student’s) edition, and further ventures covering different countries and periods were also planned.
