Biography of GM - comments to improve translation


Recommended Posts

Found the biography of GM on one of the Russian forums and decided to translate it in English,
so it can be displayed proudly with all other biographies on my site ( http://numistika.com/books.html ).

If you have a little bit of time to read it, can you please comment on my translation, so I can
possibly improve it? Here is a direct link to the pdf file:

Georgii Mikhailovich
Maksimenko - 2006
Maksimenko%20-%202006%20-%20Grand%20Duke
Grand Duke - Life, Works, Collection
rus & eng. versions

 

Also, if you know who Maksimenko is and how to contact her (and care to share),
it would also be appreciated.

Thank you in advance!

Very nicely done Eugene!

 

Is there a complete listing of GM coins in the Smithsonian? Do you have any specifics on the whereabouts of at least some other coins from the collection that did not make it to the museum?

 

Thanks

There are people who have collected materials for years, and I am very hopeful that the story of GM collection will soon continue "on the paper" from the time it left Russia. There are more interesting materials here: http://numistika.com/vkgm.html , including a copy of Christie's catalog with prices and buyers of gold and platinum coins in 1950... courtesy of Mr. V. Arefiev.

Had to edit some more, including the comments (after additional sleepless night reading :read: ).
Here is an updated version. Hope it's OK now. At least I finally feel peace inside my chest... :art:
