Context: I recently chatted with a postdoc from russia, and we somehow got on the topic of learning mathematics and textbooks, and he told me about a wonderful textbook by Yuri Manin, on algebraic geometry which was written at the beginning of the seventies and wildely used for a long time in the former SU. He was so full of praise that I decided to check it out.

Now the problem I checked our library catalog and amazon.com and can't find anything that I can identify as this AG-textbook.

Question: So does this book exists? What's it's title? Was it maybe not translated?. Q2: If anyone has anything interesting to say about the book this would also be appreciated.

PS: I also speak german so if you know a german translation please also post.
