[Text in Russian] Tsars'kii Manifest: 17-go Oktiabria 1905 Roku [October Manifesto]

S.-Petersburg': Tip. Uchilishcha Glukhonimikh' (M. Alenevoi), 1906. 12mo (17cm.); publisher's yellow wrappers; 16pp. Wrappers both separated but present, stock exceedingly brittle with shallow losses and light toning along extremities, ownership signature and rubberstamps to upper cover; textblock disbound. Good only, though internal leaves remain fresh. This edition unlocated in OCLC as of January, 2019.

Quite a scarce and early popular edition of the October Manifesto, and the only such to have been published under this title. The Manifesto was issued by Tsar Nicholas II in response to a wave of violence and worker strikes. The success of the Manifesto, which offered the population the promise of basic civilian rights, was shortlived. This edition published by a Ukrainian (and presumably imperialist) publisher in St. Petersburg.
