About this Item

First UK edition, first impression of this novel by a distant relative of Leo Tolstoy (War and Peace) and of Ivan Turganev, on his mother's side. A very good book, straight and tightly bound but with some foxing on the textblock edges and some internally, mostly on the endpages and the first and last few pages of text - most of the interior pages are free of this. The very scarce dustjacket is intact with some small chips and short closed tears at the edges (not a lot missing paper) and tanning (darkening) to the spine and the folds. A few scattered wrinkles and creases complete the list of flaws. The flaps are not clipped - the original price "8/6 net" is printed on the spine. The novel's original title was "Khozhdenie Po Mukham" and its background is the Russia of 1914 -1919 - its sales were apparently huge in Soviet Russia. The English translation of this book is not common at all, however, either in the UK or the US edition. Bookseller Inventory # 5941
