EDNOTE. There are now available a great many Russian-language books on VN and his works. Many of them are hard to find. The Moscow bookdealer ANNI has compiled the following list of works.. I would add that I have dealt with this Russian book mail-order firm for some years and have found them helpful, knowledgeable, and efficient.
I have added my comments to a few of the items that I think are the most important for scholars.

Dear Don,

We are afraid we're a bit confused about whether you want us to get a copy for you (to be exact, for the library you mentioned) or not. Could you let us know, please.
We'd highly appreciate it if you could forward our list of Russian books devoted to VVN to the participants of Nabokov L . Some of these books could be found upon request.

Thank you very much in advance.
Best wishes, Andrey and Nina.
