The Seagull is generally considered to be the first of his four major plays. The play was written in 1895 and first produced in 1896. After the production failed Chekhov was in embittered mood even though he was receiving good reviews and support. He at first turned down Lavrov's and Goltsev's offer to publish the text of the play in 'Russian Thought' and gave his permission only after their repeated and insistent pleas. In its printed form the play brought Chekhov many new admirers but it also was rejected by some people. That first production had censor corrections but in first publication Chekhov removed those corrections.

        Moko; or Maori Tattooing

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1896. First edition. Frontispiece, 180 illustrations from drawings by the author and from photographs. xxi, 216 pp. 4to. A very good copy in original brown pictorial cloth, with Maori tattoo illustration on the covers. Gilt lettering on cover and spine, bookplate of I. Eliot Hodgrin to front pastedown. Extremities rubbed,occasional foxing throughout. First edition. Frontispiece, 180 illustrations from drawings by the author and from photographs. xxi, 216 pp. 4to. Specialized record of tattoo patterns and a collection of dried heads. A classic ethnography on the Maoris and the long tradition of tattooing. Profusely illustrated, this valuable history showcases the creativity and craft of the native artists. In 1863, Major-General Robley (1840-1930) with the 68th Regiment debarked Burma for New Zealand. In the following April, Robley took his troops to join General Cameron's forces attacking Gate Pa in Tauranga. During the 19 months he remained there with his troops, he became fascinated with the Maori people and executed a series of sketches of Maori life and tattoo patterns, as well as documenting the process practiced to preserve the tattooed heads of chiefs. "On these two subjects he regarded himself as an authority, a claim not to be disputed provided we bear in mind that his awareness was that of a curio collector, and not that of a scholar"-William John Phillipps Hocken refers to plans for a second edition in 1909 which was never published.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Berlin, 13. IV. 1896.

      1896. 1¼ SS. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo. Wohl an den Schriftsteller Friedrich Spielhagen wegen eines Treffens: "Würden Sie vielleicht mir mitteilen wollen, wann ich Sie zuhause antreffen könnte, oder einen dritten Ort zu einem Zusammentreffen bestimmen? Zwischen meiner ersten Inanspruchnahme durch Herrn Direktor Lehmann und Ihrem freundlichen Besuch liegt nämlich eine Korrespondenz, in der sich Herr Lehmann als so höflicher Kavalier erwies, dass ich ihm meine Absage schickte. Ich habe ja noch immer keine Antwort auf Anfragen von Ende Februar. Was für seltsame Formen sind das! [...]".
