"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 issues - preceded by the nearly unattainable U.K. Vizetelly English translations. 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 -moreso on the later volumes, occasional light foxing to fore-edges. Overall a very good, untouched set. ******* This American edition was released in three phases – January, May, and August of 1886, so a complete first issue set is not terribly easy to accumulate. The books were released in both brown cloth and wrappers(complete wrappered sets are also virtually unattainable). An interesting aspect to this offered set is that it's an export issue. Gottsberger set aside an unknown number of the first run sets for release in Europe with title pages bearing the imprint of the their publishing partners in London, Paris, and Leipzig along with Euro-market aimed advertisements at the rear – far less common than the fairly ubiquitous domestic American sets. This is a cool addition to the shelf, whether you're a Tolstoy fan or general high spot collector. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-1489026489596

Item Description: The Folio Society, UK, 2014. Hardcover, Slipcased. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: None issued. Igor Karash (illustrator). 1st Edition. Signed, dated and remarqued by the illustrator Igor Karash Synopsis : Among the most influential novels of all time, Leo Tolstoy¿s War and Peace is set against the great political events surrounding Napoleon¿s attempted invasion of Russia in 1812. Boasting over five hundred characters, the sprawling narrative focuses on the fortunes and struggles of five aristocratic families. Featuring both real and fictional protagonists, from lowly foot soldiers to Napoleon himself, Tolstoy weaves a literary and historical epic that has never been equaled. This edition features the highly acclaimed 2007 translation by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky. Much criticism has been levelled against previous attempts to ¿anglicise¿ and ¿smooth¿ Tolstoy¿s often idiosyncratic prose. Here the translation remains as close as possible to the original language. Tolstoy¿s tendency towards repetition, which, as critic and author James Wood writes in his new preface, he uses ¿almost liturgically, or psalmically¿, was removed in earlier Victorian translations as it did not fit the mould of what was considered ¿good writing¿. As Pevear states in his introduction, ¿We have tried to be true to Tolstoy¿s rhetorical power, his sharp irony, and his astonishing delicacy.¿ Igor Karash¿s poignant illustrations, 15 in each volume, including two double-page spreads, often spill out of their margins. Much like the prose, the images are both intimate and sweeping, mirroring the expansive nature of Tolstoy¿s history, and the individual¿s place within it. This edition also features a striking binding design with the spines blocked in gold and coloured page tops and 30 colour illustrations by Igor Karash. It is a fine edition of one of the great masterpieces of world literature. A sprawling social panorama, a brilliant work of historical philosophy, a masterpiece of Russian storytelling ¿ Tolstoy¿s magnum opus has always evaded classification. Homeric in tone and biblical in scope, it is unquestionably one of the most important books ever written. From the flash of a smile at a genteel Petersburg soirée to the sweeping arm of la grand armeé tugging at the very fabric of Europe, the details that Tolstoy draws on in his writing are as varied and boundless as Russia itself. As the journalist Isaac Babel commented after turning the last page, ¿If life could write, it would write like Tolstoy.¿ Told predominantly through the lives of the Rostov and Bolkonsky families, and the naive aristocrat Pierre Bezukhov, the story spans the years 1805 to 1812, as Napoleon¿s armies draw inexorably closer to the heart of Russia. Under the gathering darkness of war, Tolstoy brings to life some of literature¿s richest characters: the impulsive, beguiling Natasha Rostov, the proud and ambitious Prince Andrei Bolkonsky, and the guileless Pierre Bezukhov, searching for spiritual fulfilment. This enthralling epic follows the interconnected marriages, affairs, heartbreaks and struggles of these very different aristocratic families, as Tolstoy uses the building blocks of strained partings and emotional reunions, deaths and loves, to shape his all-pervading masterpiece. The complexities of 19th-century Tsarist society are set against the chaos and terrors of war in a cinematic narrative that sweeps across the vistas of Austerlitz, Borodino¿s bloody fields and the burning city of Moscow. Tolstoy¿s descriptions, drawn from his own experience in the Crimean War, are chillingly real, and convey an astonishing level of detail, from the horrors of amputation to the panic and disbelief felt in the heat of the cavalry charge. As James Wood writes in his newly commissioned preface, Tolstoy aimed to ¿correct the ¿official¿ record ¿ truth, you feel, is being battled for, with whatever literary weapons come to hand¿. Tolstoy deftly weaves historical discourse with fictional prose, consistently subverting our traditional understanding of genre. Signed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # 001259
