LOST EMPIRE

Mediocre treatment of a famous story, the story of Rezanov, already immortalized in fiction by Gertrude Atherton. This covers more ground, is a full-length biography, with his career under Catherine the Great, his diplomatic mission to Japan, his affiliations with Siberian fur trading, his trip to America, his romance with Dona Concha, his return to Russia and his death. Careful scholarly treatment, but lacks fire.
