The photographs include portraits of Chertkov, his family and other members of the 'Tolstoy Commune'. Also included are photos of the house and other buildings, with some shots of a building on fire. Some photos are labelled and dated on the reverse, 1905-1912. Biographical note: Vladimir Chertkov, Leo TolstoyÂís secretary and friend, travelled to England in 1897, after his exile by the Russian government. He settled at Tuckton House, where Tolstoy had enjoyed a summer holiday in 1894. Tchertkov brought with him thirty or so other emigres, mainly middle-class artisans and professionals, who were resolved to publish the works of their mentor, Tolstoy. Chertkov put his money, energy and leadership skills into the remarkable Free Age Press, run by A. C. Fifield. Over the next few years, this small press produced 424 million pages of TolstoyÂís writing. Its propagating work was then carried on by the publisher C. W. Daniel, also a fan of Tolstoy, and who acquired the rights of the Free Age Press around 1906. 1 Kg. Bookseller Inventory # 219991
