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.
