About this Item

Very good in original green cloth with original pale green floral endpapers complete. Corners bumped and some modest wear to foot of spine. Gilt Romanov seal and gilt titles to front board and spine somewhat dulled but still easily legible. Small black stain to top front edge of front board. Front hinge is lovely; rear internal hinge may have been repaired, though if so it was competently done. Publisher's ornate monogram to title page. Only date showing is 1886 to copyright page; no later printings mentioned. Previous owner's name "E.E. Maxwell" in an ornate hand to top of FFE, dated "1888-10-8." Eight of the author's works are listed opposite title page, including "A Russian Proprietor (In Press)" and "Anna Karenina" at $1.75. As "A Russian Proprietor" was released in 1887 this is not definitive, though it's generally accepted the earliest printings of this edition of Karenina had fewer titles listed here (or none at all.) 773 pp. including the glossary, followed by 4 pp. (not 5 pp.) of publisher's ads which include "Crime and Punishment" at $1.50, with Dostoyevsky's "Recollections of a Dead-House" listed as "In press." Probably not the first state, then (we do offer one of those separately), but certainly the first American edition -- which is also the first English-language edition, preceding the British -- from its first year of publication. Reduced from $600. Bookseller Inventory # 004407
