Publisher: Thomas Y. Crowell & Co., New York
This is a reprint of the the first English-language edition of one of the greatest novels ever written. Unlike later editions, this book does not contain a list of Tolstoi works in the front and no ads in the back, only a glossary of terms. This copy has two title pages, one with red type with a portrait of the author and a traditional title page. Absolutely stunning cover with original dust jacket. Collectible.
Condition: This is a stunning book, in fine condition. Green cover with gilt-stamped teardrop with the author’s name below the title–also in gilt lettering. Frontis with intact tissue guard. Firm binding. Bright gilt along top edge. Text block is clean and stain free as are all illustrations. There is some minor staining on prelims and on page edges. Dust jacket is in great condition for its age. There’s some wear and tear to jacket along edges, head/tail of spine and hinges. Binding very slightly cocked.
