Re: Iskra?

I found a bound volume of Iskra in the general stacks at University of Washington and had them move it into the vault. One thing that's worthy of mention is the paper they used — very thin onionskin/bible paper to make it possible to smuggle numbers of copies of the illegal publication in a very small space. It was published in free Europe and then smuggled into censored Tsarist Russia.
