Numerous photos of pages from the book are included with this listing. The first two photos include the cover of the book and the photo of Taras Shevchenko, following an additional five photos of pages from the book. This last group of five photos is quite faint. .
The journal of Taras Shevchenko
for the period, June 12, 1857 to July 13, 1858
was published in facsimile format.This is an exact reproduction of the journalas written by Shevchenko.
A short, five page
autobiography by Shevchenko
is also reproduced in facsimile format.
The journalcontains daily entries some long, some short,in the handwriting of Shevchenko.The writing is difficult to readand does varyconsiderably among entries.Included in the entriesare artwork,musicand what appears to be poetry. These are page after pageof entries that are very difficult to read. Although not totally confirmed,notes in the margin appear to be original to the journal before this book was published.
When this book was foundit had a dust jacketthat was in tatters… It was not possible to preserve the dust jacket as a whole.The photo ofShevchenko from the front cover of the dust jacketwastaken and placed, attached at the four corners, on the first page, or end paper of the book
Including this photo provides a definitive reference to Shevchenkowho is shownwith a full curly beard, an unexpected view of him as an older person… Usually Shevchenko is seenwith a heavy, bushy, mustache…
This journalhas the appearance of a memoriam to Shevchenko.Itgives us a view of him in the yearsvery close to his death in 1861 at age 47.Athough the journal and autobiography are in a facsimile format ...
...this is about the closest anyone will get to Shevchenko himself.
He wrote this.It is in his handwriting.How much closer can one getto Shevchenko…
It is ironic that although Shevchenko is viewedas a very important person in the literary history of the Ukraine, the title and associatedinformation, as well as the afterword in this book were published, in Kiev, Ukraine, in the Russianlanguage…
This book is in a very good condition with edge wear to the cover, primarily evident in the region of the spine, and as soft unbound corners.An inscriptionis present on the inside of the front cover….There is no other writing or marks in the book.The photo of Shevchenko from the dust jacket is on the first page of the book.The pages of the book are a light brown color, with that brown color, perhaps, due for the most part, to the age of the paper used by Shevchenko in his journals..
