With our Russian background, and with two children and a granddaughter who spoke Russian to assist me, I set a goal to acquire the 161 titles in Valerian Lada- Mocarski's Bibliography of Books on Alaska published before 1868 (New Haven and London: 1969). His own collection was sold in 1971 by San Francisco book dealer Warren Howell to Elmer Rasmuson of Alaska.
Lada-Mocarski included books which he considered most important in telling the story of the exploration and settlement of Russian-America before the U. I believe the present sale includes the most extensive privately held collection of Lada-Mocarski titles (140 lots representing 99 of the 161 Lada-Mocarski entries) since that author's own collection was described and sold nearly 50 years ago.
