Page Count358
Long DescriptionVladimir Gilyarovsky's classic portrait of the Russian capital is one of Russians’ most beloved books. This award-winning translation makes the book available to English language readers for the first time. Gilyarovsky's self-described "chronicle" is a spectactular verbal pastiche: conversation, from gutter gibberish to the drawing room; oratory, from illiterates to aristocrats; prose, from boilerplate to Tolstoy; poetry, from earthy humor to Pushkin. *** Winner of the prestigious 2015 Award for Best Translation into English by the American Association of Teachers of Slavic and East European Languages. *** First published in 1926, the book positively teems with rich descriptions and vivid anecdotes: ...from the depths of Moscow’s sewers to the murky back rooms of its gambling dens... ...from the steam-filled halls of banyas to the dining rooms of posh restaurants and workers’ taverns... ...from the lives of students and waiters to the struggles of market traders and heroic firemen... Gilyarovsky’s book documents pre-Soviet life in the Russian capital like no work before or since. This first-ever English translation includes dozens of historical photos, poems in the original Russian, an index, and maps. REVIEW: "...This English rendition is a true accomplishment... students studying any aspect of nineteenth-century Russia would gain from this work a more graphic and more complete sense of the vanished pre-revolutionary world than any single textbook or literary work is likely to provide." – Barry P. Scherr, Dartmouth College (Slavic and East European Journal)

The extra items are numerically indexed and provide extra text to go along with numeric values such as weights or distances or even currencies. The attributes that use these extra indexes are all numeric and take two fields. You can send the data in a single field as long as you use the same short or long text that we keep in our database.

Although the data feed API can deliver information as JSON or XML, we are using XML here because it is easier to read.


Looking at this example, you can see that the EXTRA portion is an array of values each with their own properties. Here is what each section means:

This extra information is normally used in a drop down box next to the numeric data field that we want to enhance. Some examples might be:

You see we can display the long or short version of the extra code by using the ID index.

Fields that make use of this extra information require it when pushing data back to us in the feed. You can either send the data in two fields (value and extra_id) or in a single field (value) as long as the text following the numeric portion matches the long or short version of the extra data we store for the field.

For example, if you wanted to update a field that represented distance with the value "100 yards", you could either send that data just like that in the value field value=100+yards or in two seperate fields value=100&extra_id=505 and you would get the same results. If you send an invalid extra_id or text after the number that doesn't match our accepted list, your update would be rejected.
