About this Item

Octavo. 185, [1]pp. Original printed wrappers. Remarkable work being a transcription of the Trial of the Sixteen, the first of the three major trials in the Moscow Trials, followed by the Trial of the Anti-Soviet Trotskyist Center, and the Trial of the Twenty-One. The Moscow Trials were a series of trials in 1936 and 1937 in the Soviet Union which were the precursors to the Great Purge. The defendants included most of the surviving Old Bolsheviks, as well as the leadership of the Soviet secret police. Most defendants were charged under Article 58 of the RSFSR Penal Code with conspiring with the western powers to assassinate Stalin and other Soviet leaders, dismember the Soviet Union, and restore capitalism. The Trial of the Sixteen was held from August 19 to August 24, 1936 in the House of Trade Unions and there were 16 defendants, at which the chief defendants were Grigory Zinoviev and Lev Kamenev. The main charge was forming a terror organization with the purpose of killing Joseph Stalin and other members of the Soviet government. They were tried by the Military Collegium of the Supreme Court of the USSR, with Vasili Ulrikh presiding, and the Prosecutor General being Andrei Vyshinsky. Defendant Ivan Nikitich Smirnov, was blamed by his co-defendants for being the leader of the Center which planned Kirov's assassination. He, however, had been in prison since January 1933 and refused to confess. All the defendants were sentenced to death and were subsequently shot in the cellars of Lubyanka prison in Moscow.Moderate rubbing, creasing and age-toning along edges of wrappers. Minor and sporadic underlining in pencil throughout (easily erasable). Lower corner bumped, thus slightly affecting pages throughout. Text in German. Wrappers in overall fair to good, interior in good+ condition. Bookseller Inventory # 33683
