by Pushkin, A

Condition: See description


S.-Peterburg (St. Petersburg) : Tipografiia Tovarishchestva "Obshchestvennaia Polza", 1887. Hardcover. Second edition, expanded with two engraved plates of Pushkin's portrait and a scene of his duel, newly-discovered poems, and 500 letters; 10 1/2 x 7; pp. [8], III- XIV, [2], III-LIX, [3], 3-1627, [1], II-VII, [3]; red cloth over boards, with elaborate gilt and black illustrations; cloth to edges and spine repaired; new ffep; heavy glue residue, period gift inscription, and traces of old tape to engravings' verso; personal stamps of two previous owners to title page; several passages underlined in pencil; text in double columns; illustrated with two engravings and a facsimile of Pushkin's handwriting; good or better condition. An unusual (OCLC lists only two copies in Canada and the UK), early, one-volume issue of Pushkin's works, it contained not only his best-known works, but also never-published-before letters and poems, and a wonderful biographical essay on Pushkin by A. Skabichevskii. Although obviously well-loved and read nearly half-to-death, the book is still an important edition and a beautiful example of 19th-century Russian publishing.
