Excerpt from Memoirs of Countess Golovine: A Lady at the Court of Catherine II

'Is it really worth while publishing them? Everyone has read them already!' a friend said to me in jest, just as, with the gracious assistance of Count Charles Lanҫkoronski, the great-grandson of the authoress, I was getting these 'Recollections' ready for the press.

This was merely a jest, not seriously meant, but it nevertheless emphasises one feature which distinguishes Mme. Golovine's work from the many productions of the same class, for, in an age when clandestine literature itself borrows from the press its means of propagation, these 'Recollections' have reached a very wide public, even before the present edition, to which I nevertheless congratulate myself that I have devoted great care.

I am not alluding only to a Russian translation, published in 1900 by M. Choumigorski, the numerous gaps in which are to be explained by the severities of a censorship that now finds no defenders, nor yet to the numerous extracts, reproduced, many years ago, in various publications in Russia, France, and other countries, but even in MS. the 'Recollections,' since they were first written, passed freely from hand to hand, and a considerable number of copies were made of them. I personally have possessed as many as five, from various sources.

This wide publicity before any actual printed publication is sufficient attestation of the exceptional value of the book which has enjoyed it, but various reasons contribute to make this value greater.
