Item Description: No place, 11/24 Feb. 1904., 1904. 1 p. on bifolium. 8vo. Written in English to the Philadelphia newspaper, "The North American". Nine months have passed since the beginning of the war, and Tolstoy, an advocate of non-violence, was one of the world's leading voices. His opinions were of great interest to his readers, and the present letter is an answer to the newspaper's query: "I am neither for Russia nor Japan, but for laboring people of both, deceived by governments and obliged to fight against their welfare, conscience and religion". - Some damage to edges and foldings. Quoted (with departures) in: H. Troyat, Tolstoy (New York 1967), p. 615. Bookseller Inventory # 45641

"The heart of this drama is the metamorphosis of five families, some peasant, some aristocratic, amid the backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars. Each individual is immersed in experiences and conversations elucidating Tolstoy's themes of self-sacrifice and self-indulgence, anguish and ecstasy, diplomacy and deception, and religion and perdition. The complexities of character and plot are sometimes enigmatic, and names are often exhausting to recollect, but the genius of this book is everlasting. An entire universe is created by one of the foremost thinkers of the 19th century" (B. Mann). Harris, p. 152. HBS 65785. $15,000. Bookseller Inventory # 65785

Item Description: New York William S. Gottsberger 1886, 1886. 6 volumes. First edition in English, First Issue of each volume with the proper dating and Gottsberger imprint to the verso of each title-page. 8vo, publisher’s original brown cloth lettered in gilt on the spines, with black tooled borders and gilt pictorial decorations in all over designs to the covers. 322, [6 ads]; 357, [2 ads]; 321; 270, [10 ads]; ii, 290, [10 ads]; 391. A very pleasing set of this rare survival. The original cloth remains in quite good condition, the hinges are strong and tight, some light edgewear to expected areas of the cloth, the tips and the spine ends just a bit rubbed primarily from shelving, two volumes with a bit more wear to the tips of the spines than the others. Ads comport with those in the copy at Harvard University. RARE FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH. A COMPLETE SET OF FIRST ISSUE VOLUMES, ALL IN ORIGINAL BINDINGS AND IN A PLEASING STATE OF PRESERVATION. Tolstoy’s epic of the Napoleonic wars has few peers in world literature; John Galsworthy described it as "the greatest novel ever written." E. M. Forster, in his Aspects of the Novel , declared that "(N)o English novelist is as great as Tolstoy, that is to say, has given so complete a picture of man’s life, both on its domestic and heroic side." Similarly, De Vogüé, the "greatest French authority on Russian literature.remarks that:.’ It is a faithful picture of life: the experience of a traveller thrown among a society new to him--constraint and boredom at first, then curiosity and at last a firm attachment. I admit sotto voce that I know nothing superior to it in any literature.’" War and Peace can be said to stand "at the crucial point where the modern novel begins." Tolstoy’s immediate predecessors in the development of the modern novel were the great French analytical novelists of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, Rousseau and Stendhal, who influenced Tolstoy greatly. Tolstoy registered this change in distinguishing his method--the point of view method--from the old dramatic method, such as found in Dostoevsky. Very loosely, the point of view method did not simply relate words and actions of characters, as in the dramatic method, but provided psychological insight as to why characters thought and acted the way they did. "Tolstoy in War and Peace transcends the limit of the novel and does what had previously been done by the epic. Thus War and Peace has to be put in a group not with Madame Bovary, Vanity Fair, or the Mill on the Floss, but with the Iliad, in the sense that when the novel is finished nothing is finished--the stream of life flows on, and with the appearance of Prince Andrew’s son the novel ends on the beginning of a new life." ‘Tolstoy’s original intention was to recount the Decembrist movement which culminated in the revolt of 1825 and was the predecessor to the "back to the people" movement of the seventies and the revolutionary movements that culminated in the communist overthrow of tsarist power in 1917. However, when Tolstoy began to investigate the Decembrist conspiracy, he began to delve deeper into the historical events preceding it. That is, to the French invasion in 1812 and the Russian events leading up to the invasion. Although Tolstoy was interested in the role that the Masons played in opposing tsarist power, these parts were probably made ambiguous by the censors of the time.’. Bookseller Inventory # 24555

Item Description: Gottsberger, 1886. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. First American edition, first printing. Publisher's uniform decorated brown cloth, boards elaborately tooled and ruled in black, front boards lettered in gilt with gilt-stamped Napoleonic and Russian Imperial crests, spines lettered in gilt; brown-coated endpapers, flyleaves. General wear and rubbing particularly to spines and spine ends – more so on the later volumes, occasional light foxing to fore-edges. Large European armorial bookplates in all volumes. Overall a very good, untouched set. ********** This American edition was released in two volume increments in three phases – January, May, and August of 1886. Recent scholarship makes a fairly compelling case that the virtually unattainable UK Vizetelly edition(commonly labeled as the first edition in English) was released simultaneously in January, thereby making this set, or at least the first two volumes, equals for first English language appearance. The books were released in both brown cloth and wrappers(complete wrappered sets when encountered, will cost you a healthy multiple of this asking price). While the American sets are commonly available, ours offers an interesting wrinkle in that it's an export issue. Gottsberger set aside an unknown number of the first printing sets for release in Europe with title pages bearing the imprint of their publishing partners in London, Paris, and Leipzig containing Euro-market aimed advertisements at the rear – far less common than the ubiquitous domestic sets. This is a cool addition to the shelf, whether you're a Tolstoy fan or general high spot collector.******* I first read Tolstoy in my very early 20s. They say you won't understand him until you're 30. And they are right. The magic comes with the proper mix of life pain and acute self-awareness. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-1489026489596

Any sections of text not from Anna Karenina are covered in old paper. Inkstains to first few leaves, edges guarded, some mild staining and fingermarking in places, some marginal waterstaining towards the end. Contemporary half morocco, re-backed preserving original spine. All parts bound together. Anna Karenina was serialized in Russkiy Vestnik in 1875. This copy was created by a devoted reader who removed all the parts from 13 issues of the journal and bound them in a single volume. Owing to a political disagreement between Tolstoy and the journal's publisher, Mikhail Katkov, over Serbian independence (Katkov and his journal were in favour, and Tolstoy was against) the last part of the story was never printed. A complete edition (with the final part) was published in book form in 1878, but this was the only separate edition (that is, excluding collections and selections) during Tolstoy's lifetime. Rare both as an example of devotion to Tolstoy by an unknown reader and as the first appearance in print of this canonical text. Bookseller Inventory # 42

Overall, this unique collection remains particularly well-preserved. Further scans, images etc. and additional bibliographical material available on request. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 0 pages; A remarkable collection of over 30 original photographs relating to Vladimir Chertkov and Tuckton House in England, the home of Free Age Press, which published works of Tolstoy from his original manuscripts.

Some photos are labelled and dated on the reverse, 1905-1912. Biographical note: Vladimir Chertkov, Leo TolstoyÂ’s secretary and friend, travelled to England in 1897, after his exile by the Russian government. He settled at Tuckton House, where Tolstoy had enjoyed a summer holiday in 1894. Tchertkov brought with him thirty or so other emigres, mainly middle-class artisans and professionals, who were resolved to publish the works of their mentor, Tolstoy. Chertkov put his money, energy and leadership skills into the remarkable Free Age Press, run by A. C. Fifield. Over the next few years, this small press produced 424 million pages of TolstoyÂ’s writing. Its propagating work was then carried on by the publisher C. W. Daniel, also a fan of Tolstoy, and who acquired the rights of the Free Age Press around 1906. 1 Kg. 0 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 219991

Some photos are labelled and dated on the reverse, 1905-1912. Biographical note: Vladimir Chertkov, Leo TolstoyÂ’s secretary and friend, travelled to England in 1897, after his exile by the Russian government. He settled at Tuckton House, where Tolstoy had enjoyed a summer holiday in 1894. Tchertkov brought with him thirty or so other emigres, mainly middle-class artisans and professionals, who were resolved to publish the works of their mentor, Tolstoy. Chertkov put his money, energy and leadership skills into the remarkable Free Age Press, run by A. C. Fifield. Over the next few years, this small press produced 424 million pages of TolstoyÂ’s writing. Its propagating work was then carried on by the publisher C. W. Daniel, also a fan of Tolstoy, and who acquired the rights of the Free Age Press around 1906. 1 Kg. 0 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 219991

Item Description: Thomas Y. Crowell and Co., New York, 1886. First Edition. Tolstoy, Leo. ANNA KARÉNINA. New York: Thomas Y. Crowell and Co., 1886. True First Edition, Early Issue. In Eight Parts. [publisher's monogram on the title-page]. Translated by Nathan Haskell Dole. Publisher's, original dark brown cloth [the book was issued in blonde brown, blue, & green, with no established priority), spine & the front panel gilt with gilt Imperial House of Romanov seal, light green leaf-designed endpapers. 8vo., 773 pp. with the four pages of advertisements. Six titles without Anna K listed on the page facing the title page. First printing, early issue of the First American Edition, & First English Language Printing preceding the First British Edition. A very good or better bright example with some minor wear at the spine head; contents clean & free of blemish. A very, very nice copy of this uncommon early issue of this literary classic which was first published serially in the original Russian in 1873 & first published in book form, Moscow, 1878. [Line, p. 36]. Custom collector's embossed slipcase in fine condition. A curious bibliography, the page facing the title page shows a printed list of books by Tolstoi "available" from Crowell, including Childhood, Boyhood, and Youth; Ivan Ilyitch; My Religion; My Confession; What to Do?, & The Invaders; Childhood was published separately by Crowell 1886, Ivan Ilyitch 1886, My Religion [Trans. as "What I Believe"] published by Crowell in 1885, Three titles: My Confession, What to Do, & The Invaders were all published in 1887 & it is likely that Crowell anticipated publication of these titles. Post 1887 titles do not appear on this list & of the dozen or more copies examined, all had this listing format, generally recognized as the correct first edition format for an early issue - it is likely that the very first issue had no later titles, only the titles printed.

Ads at rear include a list of Russian translations from Crowell including Crime and Punishment [1886, no blurbs shown] Injury and Insult and Recollections of a Dead-House [shown as 'in press', not yet published, but although published in London 1886, no Crowell edition located, no blurbs/reviews shown], Anna Karenina [1886, two reviews], My Religion, published as What I Believe in 1885 by Crowell [New York Sun review], Childhood Boyhood Youth, Crowell 1886, three reviews, Gogol's Taras Bulba [Crowell 1886, two reviews], St John's Eve, [Crowell 1886, no reviews], also Tchernuishevsky's A Vital Question [Crowell 1886] with three reviews & Dupuy's Great Masters of Russian Literature [1886] with one review; Full page advertisements for Joseph Roux's Meditations of a Parish Priest with a blurb from Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine; a full page ad for Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment, published by Crowell October 1886, & showing blurbs from the Sept 1886 Harper's Weekly, Boston Traveller & undated ads from The Athenaeum & The Spectator.
