Year Title
1923 [as by ]
1950Wikipedia indicates that there was an English translation in 1950. However, the source for this date, LCCN 59037312 is for the Foreign Languages Publishing House edition which the LOC lists as published in "[195-?]". The LOC does have a 1950 publication, LCCN ltf91047808, which is listed under this title. However, the LOC record does not list a publisher and the page count does not match that of the Flaxman translation which appears to be undated, though several secondary sources date it as 1957. Further, the LOC record is unclear on the language of the book but has a note stating "Romanized", this suggests this variant is still in Russian but with the Latin script.
