Description

Scope and Content

Correspondence of members of the Herzen family, especially Aleksandr I. Herzen and his wife Natalii︠a︡. Most of the letters were written by Herzen and his wife to Tati︠́a︡na A. Astrakova and her husband Nikolaĭ in the period 1838-51. There are also seven letters from Tati︠́a︡na Astrakova to Natalii︠a︡ Herzen fille; one letter from Nikolaĭ Ogarev to Nikolaĭ Astrakov; and letters from three of the Herzen children (Aleksandr, Natalii︠a︡, and Nikolaĭ) to Tati︠́a︡na Astrakova. The letters in Box 1 were first published in "Novyĭ Zhurnal" nos. 46-51 (1956-57), and then in "Neizdannye pisḿa A.I. Gert︠s︡ena k N.I. i T.A. Astrakovym" (New York, 1957), edited by Ludwig Domherr. These consist of all letters by Aleksandr Herzen in the collection, plus a selection of letters by Natalii︠a︡ Herzen -- including all those partly written by Aleksandr Herzen or with notes or postscripts by him. The other letters in this collection have not been published.
