[Carl Joubert; anti-Tsarist articles ] Typescripts (3 signed) of 5 (unpublished?) anti-Tsarist articles.

'Carl Joubert' [Adolphus Waldorf Carl Grottey] [Tsarist Russia]
Publication details: 
Place and date of none stated, but probably Edwardian.

'The Reason Why', 'The Eastern Ukase of 1905', 'The Coming Revolution in Russia', 'The Soldier of Russia' and 'Some Aspects of Russian Life'. Manuscript corrections. The six works by 'Joubert' listed on COPAC appeared between 1904 and 1906, and it is reasonable from the context to assume that these five items date from the same period. All five items clear and complete, with all text on one side only of A4 leaves. The first four in fair condition, on aged paper, and in worn brown card bindings. The fifth item unbound and with the first and last leaves worn and grubby.

Autograph Letter Signed ('G. H. Seymour.'), written from St Petersburg by the English diplomat Sir George Hamilton Seymour in 1853, the year of his celebrated 'Seymour conversations' with Tsar Nicholas I, asking for three maps to be sent to him.
