8vo (7 7/8 x 5 1/2 in.; 200 x 140 mm). Minor dampstaining on first few leaves, scattered foxing, pp. 295-96 with two rust holes in lower margins and some staining on 296. Contemporary Russian quarter brown morocco, marbled boards, spine lettered in black, small label of Russian bookseller on front paste-down; some wear and rubbing. Brown morocco gilt clamshell case, morocco lettering pieces on spine. First edition of Turgenev's most acclaimed work. "Fathers and Sons" was published in 1862, less than a year after the Emancipation Act abolished serfdom. While the novel was condemned by Turgenev's Russian contemporaries, it found a more receptive audience in France, Germany, and Britain. Today the book is considered a vital precursor to the works of such Russian realists as Tolstoy and Dostoevsky. A very good copy of a book usually found in deplorable condition.
