    Published in Russia for the first time, this is the full text of the memoirs of Dmitri Abrikosov (1876-1951), a descendant of the famous Moscow merchant family known as the “pastry kings” and the last diplomatic representative of the Russian empire in Japan. It covers a broad panorama of Russian and international stories of the last third of the 19th and first half of the 20th century. An employee of the Russian embassies in London, Beijing and Tokyo, and a forced exile, Abrikosov left his compatriots a collection of exciting and dramatic remembrances, the original of which is stored in the Bakhmeteff Archive at Columbia University (USA).
