About this Item

These first edition hardcovers are a two volume set; tan boards with silver and navy lettering on the spine. The binding on both volumes is firm. Spine ends are slightly bumped. Volume one has a small bit of fraying at the top corner. Otherwise, they are both in excellent condition. The 334 pages of Vol. 1 and the 413 pages of Vol. 2 are clean and unmarked. There are many black and white historical photographs, as well as seven over-sized separately bound fold-out maps of the USSR. George H. Hanna has translated the first book from Russian to English. David Skvirsky and Vic Schneerson have translated the second book. Vol.1 chronicles the earliest history of the USSR up to 1917 and Vol. 2 explores the period of 1917 until 1964. Both books include a chronology of their particular time frame. Some chapters contained within this set include Feudal states, The Collapse of Serfdom, Epoch of Imperialism, The First World War, The Socialist Revolution, The Building of Socialism, The Great Patriotic War and The Cultural Revolution. Both dust jackets have minimal chipping at the spine ends and corners with a slight amount of rubbing on the back cover of Vol.2. These are very nice copies of an informative and well organized book set on the history of the USSR. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 001275
