Originally published in Russian, and here translated from that language by Nina N. Selivanova, this is "the classic story of a Russian brothel." From the back cover: "When 'Yama' was first published the Russian censorship mutilated it beyond recognition. Kuprin was called a corruptor of youth and his book was denounced as pornography." 223 pages, illustrated, cover painting by George Zeil. Small sticker shadow to top right corner of front cover, light rubbing, faint edge soil, tanning, moderate general wear. Internally still fairly tight, but a rough or careless reading might change that in a hurry.
