Prague: Izdanie gazety "Volia Rossii", 1921. Octavo (22.2 × 14.7 cm). Original pictorial wrappers; [5], 183 pp. About very good; some wear to base of spine, with small loss to front wrapper; still an unusually well-preserved copy of a fragile book.

Scarce early account of the Kronstadt Rebellion, an unsuccessful revolt against the Bolshevik government instigated and carried out primarily by Russian sailors. The authors' report is primarily based on the news bulletin issued by the revolutionary sailors and workers of Kronstadt, which is reproduced in full in the present volume. All proceeds from the sale of the book were to benefit refugees from Kronstadt. A good copy of a book usually encountered in poor condition. With the striking wrappers signed with the initials "A. S."
