His second novel, ''Voskhishchenie'' ("Rapture"), was published in a small edition in 1930 and was ignored at the time. Set in a mythical Georgia among mountaineers, on the surface a crime novel, it is actually a fictionalized history of the Russian avant-garde, full of allusions to world literature; it could be said to anticipate magic realism. The language of the novel is innovative and poetic, and the Slavist Milivoje Jovanović called it "undoubtedly the summit toward which the Russian avant-garde was striving." Sergei Biryukov, review of Zdanevich collection, ''Toronto Slavic Quarterly'' (in Russian). Aftermath The closed hearing was held in February 1906 in a small fortress in the island of Tendra near Sebastopol (Sevastopol).

The trial on Mikhail Stavraki, who was Schmidt's classmate at the Naval Corps in St Petersburg, was held on April 1, 1923 in Sebastopol, while most of the witnesses and participants of the events were still alive. On April 3, 1923 the Military Board of the Supreme Court of the USSR sentenced Stavraki to death by the firing squad. Other goods such as grain were more difficult to procure.

The first recorded account about the Abashidze dates back to the latter part of the 15th century. By the 1540s, they had already been in possession of a sizeable fiefdom within the Kingdom of Imereti located in its eastern part and called Saabashidzeo (სააბაშიძეო; literally, " the land of Abashidze"). The family reached a climax of its might at the turn of the 18th century, when it possessed 78 villages, several castles, fortresses, churches and monasteries as well as 1,500 serf households. Prince Giorgi-Malakia Abashidze was not only the most powerful vassal of the crown of Imereti, but himself acted as a kingmaker and even de facto king from 1702 to 1707. The family branched out in eastern Georgia when Erekle II, King of Kartli and Kakheti (Kingdom of Kartli and Kakheti), granted, in 1774, to his father-in-law Prince Zaal Abashidze and his male descendants estates in Kakheti. A minor branch was also established in Kartli. Earlier in the 18th century, one representative of the Imeretian line went over to the Ottoman government and settled at Batumi where his descendants attained to the office of sanjak-bey.

Three railway lines once passed through Linby, with stations (train station) on two of them. The first was the Midland Railway (later part of the LMS) line from Nottingham to Mansfield and Worksop, closed to passengers on 12 October 1964 though partly retained as a freight route serving collieries (colliery) at Annesley. In the 1990s this line was reopened to passengers in stages, the section through Linby in 1993, but Linby station did not reopen with it. The parish of '''Papplewick''' is situated towards the west of central Nottinghamshire, to the north of the town of Hucknall. It has an area of 7.15 km². The village of Papplewick is located in the west of the parish. It is 7.5 miles (12 km) north of Nottingham and 6 miles (10 km) south of Mansfield. In 1991, there were 620 people living in the parish, occupying 255 dwellings (1991 census data). In medieval times the village marked the southern gateway to Sherwood Forest. Tibshelf has since redeveloped itself into a popular place to live, in part due to its location near the M1 motorway (Tibshelf services was originally named Chesterfield Services, but was rebranded due to being closer to Tibshelf) and its proximity to Nottingham, Sheffield, Derby, Chesterfield and Mansfield. The route of the closed Great Central railway line was redeveloped by Derbyshire County Council in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and now forms part of the Five Pits Trail network. These efforts received a Countryside Award in 1970, as indicated by a plaque at nearby Pilsley. The trail runs approximately 12 miles, from Tibshelf to Grassmoor Country Park, though with the filling in of cuttings and removal of embankments it is virtually unrecognisable as a former railway line.

She also presented works of the French (France) feminist (feminism) Eugène Brieux. After Randolph Schildkraut quarrelled with Max Reinhardt (Max Reinhardt (theatre director)) in Vienna, Sara Adler brought him to Brooklyn to play the husband in Jacob Gordin's stage adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's ''The Kreutzer Sonata''. That production also included Jacob Ben-Ami (associated with the Vilna Troupe, as well as Adler offspring Stella (Stella Adler) and Luther Adler. Adler, 1999, 361 (commentary) The other known compositions for the oboe da caccia are by Fasch. Christoph Graupner ;and Giovanni Battista Ferrandini ; Haynes, op.cit.. The oboe da caccia was used only in the late Baroque (Baroque music) period, after which it fell out of use until interest in authentic performance in the 20th century caused it to be revived. During the period c. 1780–1820, roughly the Classical period (Classical period (music)), centering on Vienna, the soprano oboe underwent major changes first in bore and then in keywork. It is therefore understandable that the oboe da caccia, with its bizarre brass bell and difficult means of construction, was not selected for the same evolutionary "treatment." The prototypical English horn (Cor anglais) (''corno inglese'', ''cor anglais'', ''cor anglé'') was no doubt more suitable. Innovation was the watchword of the day, and antiquated instruments such as the oboe da caccia stood little chance of surviving (''cf.'' the way in which the piano supplanted the harpsichord). A curious note: according to Cecil Forsyth in his famous book on orchestration, Beethoven (Ludwig van Beethoven) was the last composer to write a part for the oboe da caccia until modern times. However, Forsyth wrote during a period when organology (the study of musical instruments) was in its infancy. Many of his statements, including the one about Beethoven, are questionable and in need of revision in light of modern research—in this case, Beethoven—in his Trios for two oboes and a deeper instrument in F —clearly labeled this deeper part "corno inglese" (English horn). Hyrtl was born at Kismarton, (now Eisenstadt) in Hungary. He began his medical studies in Vienna in 1831, having received his preliminary education in his native town. His parents were poor, and he had to find some means to help defray the expenses of his medical education. In 1833, while he was still a medical student, he was named prosector in anatomy, and the preparations which this position required him to make for teaching purposes attracted the attention of professors as well as students. His graduation thesis, ''Antiquitates anatomicæ rariores'', was a prophecy of the work to which his life was to be devoted. On graduation he became Prof. Czermak's assistant (famulus) and later became also the curator of the museum. He added valuable treasures to the museum by the preparations which he made for it. As a student he set up a little laboratory and dissecting room in his lodgings, and his injections of anatomical material were greatly admired. He took advantage of his post in the museum to give special courses in anatomy to students and in practical anatomy to physicians. These courses were numerously attended. thumb right Murals of St. Nicholas church, painted by David Selenica (File:Voskopoja church.jpg). The extensive livestock farming of the surrounding region led to the establishment of wool processing and carpet manufacturing units and the development of tanneries, while other locals became metal workers, silver and copper smiths. During the middle of the 18th century, the city became an important economic center whose influence spread over the boundaries of the Archbishopric of Ohrid, and reached further the Ottoman ruled Eastern-Orthodox world: the trade involved as far as the Archduchy of Austria, the Kingdom of Hungary (Kingdom of Hungary (1538–1867)), and the Upper Saxony (Electorate of Saxony). Until 1769, the town traded on a large scale with renowned European commercial centres of that time, such as Venice, Vienna and Leipzig. thumb right 200px St. Nicholas church built in 1721. (File:Voskopoja church outside.jpg) The survivors were thus forced to flee, most of them emigrating mainly to Thessaly and Macedonia (Macedonia (region)) (where they returned to their ancestral occupation of animal husbandry). Some of the commercial elite moved to the Archduchy of Austria, and the Kingdom of Hungary (Kingdom of Hungary (1538–1867)) especially to the respective capitals of Vienna and Budapest, but also to Transylvania (Principality of Transylvania (1711–1867)), where they had an important role in the early National awakening of Romania. The city never rose back to its earlier status. However, a new school was established at the end of the 18th century whose headmaster in 1802 was Daniel Moscopolites. This school functioned the following decades, thanks to donations and bequests by baron Simon Sinas, a member of the diaspora. Wikipedia:Vienna Commons:Category:Vienna
