Notes on Best Russian Short Stories

The first edition was replaced in 1934 with an editon combining the  
original stories plus those in Andreyev's Seven That Were Hanged plus  
one additional story (Bunin's The Gentleman From San Francisco). The  
pagination in this later edition was broken, reflecting the combining  
of the original two sources. In 1945 a new edition was published with  
the same stories as the 1934 edition but with continuous pagination.

There is some evidence [unconfirmed] that there's a version of the  
1934 edition without the Seltzer introduction.
