TURGENEV IVAN: (1818-1883) Russian novelist. Autograph Manuscript, unsigned, one page, 8vo, n.p., n.d., in Cyrillic. The manuscript, penned in a bold hand, is entitled Names of the characters of The Island, beneath which Turgenev has listed seven names, each with a brief description alongside, comprising Geleziy ('old philosopher'), Varnak ('protagonist'), Maeli ('young girl'), Irna ('her friend'), Arkas ('exiled old man'), Simar ('chief') and Angami ('the rich chief's daughter'). A further five names have been crossed through by Turgenev. The characters listed by Turgenev do not appear to have featured in any of his works. Some light staining and minor age wear and two small areas to the upper left corner and lower right corners professionally restored to a high standard. About VG
