line break3

(2081) Salias de Turnemir, Graf. or Comte de Salhias-Tournemire (1840-1908). “Geroï svoego vremeni” (“The Hero of his time”) Historical novel in three parts.

Original typescript, 2nd copy. 565 pages. Red hardbound boards. 21cm. Samizdat dated 1958-60.

To understand the importance of this author in the 19th century and to try imagine a writer reviled by the revolution, we would have to make reference to the article at this link: http://www.tournemire.net/salias.htm.
This famous text (OCLC 797967932) has not been republished since 1904. We do not know of any other samizdat of Ev. Salias although during his lifetime his works were widely read up to the eve of the revolution.
The original text from which this was taken was certainly stolen from a library before the work was condemned to be forgotten.
