Russian Return of the Jedi Books: I picked these books up in St. Petersburg and Moscow during my travels for 50 cents each. These were the only Star Wars items I was able to find in Russia at the time. Besides the sharp photography on the cover, the inside has several pages with color photography from Return of the Jedi. These books are parts one and two of some series, but since I can't read Russian, I have no clue. I'm guessing that both parts are Return of the Jedi, but who knows.

It's interesting that the photography for the book on the left, completely matches the photography on the bootleg carded AT-AT Driver figure from Russia that has turned up on the secondary market.
