Provides the first account of the career of James Walker, a talented engraver who worked for 18 years at the courts of Catherine II, Paul I and Alexander I. Much of his work was accomplished in Russia and his engravings and illustrations will be listed for the first time in a comprehensive check-list. The book restores Walker as the author of anonymously published anecdotes of Russia (1821) which are an important addition to the literature on Catherine's Russia from contemporary English visitors and residents. Walker's other writings on Russia are also included.
