Used; Very Good The present volume was published in 1922 in the 'Grand rue de Pera', Constantinople. Born in Sevastopol in 1881, the satirist Averchenko moved to Petersburg in 1908 where he became editor of the magazine Dragonfly, later Satyrikon and New Satyrikon. Frequent contributors were humourist Teffi (Nadezhda Lokhvitskaya), graphic artist Re-Mi (Nikolai Remizov) and the poet Sasha Chorny (Alexander Glikberg). After the October Revolution, the journal was declared anti-Soviet and Averchenko moved back home but then left hurriedly for Constantinople. He eventually settled in Prague. As well as the Ottoman capital, he also stayed briefly in Paris, Sofia and Belgrade, publishing in most of these cities. His oeuvre comprises some 20 books and numerous articles and collections.
