This is an auction for RUSSIA: A JOURNEY TO THE HEART OF A LAND AND ITS PEOPLE by Jonathan Dimbleby. review:

"Russia is a massive book: sprawling, ambitious and richly detailed. What is most impressive about the book is its synthesis of a variety of genres: travelogue, history, social document: Russia is all of these and more, with the personal voice of the narrative by Dimbleby particularly illuminating, as he struggles to come to terms with the contradictions in this fascinating country. It is a country that straddles half the globe, and contains a daunting amount of cultural and religious diversity. All of this is examined here. The author crossed eight time zones and covered 10,000 miles, from Murmansk in the Arctic Circle to the Asian city of Vladivostok. He travels by rail, road and sea, and manages to experience all the splendours and the miseries of this amazing country. But although the contours of the locales are conjured up with maximum vividness, there are also fascinating portraits of all the Russians that Dimbleby encounters, from intellectuals and struggling peasants to the new breed of fantastically successful entrepreneurs (many of whom, of course, are now making their home in London). The colour illustrations are well chosen, but it's the text that succeeds in taking the reader on this epic journey -- a journey that will transform completely most people's apprehension of the country."
