Detstvo. Povesti

by Tolstoi, L. N

Condition: See description

Berlin: I. P. Ladyzhnikova, 1920. First edition thus; 5 x 7 ½; pp. [4], 5-559, [1]; original embossed blue cloth over boards; gilt title to spine; few small nicks to head and tail and some fading to spine; a closed cut to inner margin of p. 143 repaired; several page corners somewhat brittle; overall in very good- condition. Tolstoy published Childhood pseudonymously (with only the initials L. N.) in The Contemporary journal in 1852. Delighting the editor of the magazine Nikolai Nekrasov and gaining instant appreciation by the public, he followed it with Boyhood and Youth to form a biographical trilogy. An expressionist exploration of the life of a little boy, the novel combined true stories, facts, fiction, and emotional expressions to become one of Tolstoy’s most beloved works.
