Collins (c. 1619-1670) was employed as physician to Tsar Alexis. The work comprises letters sent from Russia (to Robert Boyle?) with topics ranging from the language of Russia to Beluga caviar and mushrooms; however, it is opined that "this book... suffered in part from the improbable anecdotes inserted for the entertainment of the reader, probably by the editors of the book" (ODNB).
