4pp., 12mo. Bifolium. In good condition, on lightly aged and worn 'MONCKTON'S SUPERFINE' laid paper, with a pin holes through both leaves. The only book by Kropotkin published by Methuen & Co. appears to be 'The Terror in Russia', which went through at least eight editions between 1909 and 1911, but the references to the piracy of works by Kropotkin in the Boston magazine the Youth's Companion may suggest an earlier date, as the magazine was publishing pieces by Kropotkin', presumably without his permission, as early as 1901.
