I bought this book in San Francisco in 1974.It is in Russian published by the Holy Trinity Monastery.  I've never seen it mentioned anywhere.  Has anyone else read it?  Pat

Thanks for bringing this book up, Pat.

I've just received my copy and added a basic record to the APTM Book Finder. I'll post more information when I've had time to browse it closely:

Sarushka, where did you get your copy?
I'm really interested in this book, according to Atlantis Magazine’s special FOTR issue some of the letters are forgeries.

I got mine on eBay last week. I believe it's out of print, so I'd keep an eye on Bookfinder.com.

Wow! I haven't translated any of them yet, so I haven't run across anything suspicious myself. Which article in Atlantis mentions the forgeries?

I've found the relevant articles in Atlantis. However, they don't specify precisely *which* letters attributed to GD Anastasia Nikolaevna are in fact forgeries by Johann Meyer. I've put out a few inquiries -- if I get any specifics, I'll let you know the dates of the letters here and also make a note on the APTM Book Finder record.
