About This Item

Moskva, Posrednik, T-vo I.N. Kushnerev, 1907-1908.
Lifetime edition. This is the most rare Four Gospels... edition, especially in complete set.
Banned edition.
Fist volume limited to 6 200 copies, second - 5 000 copies.
Tolstoy was excommunicated from the Orthodox church because of his interpretation of the Gospel. Tolstoy specially prepared the second and third parts of the work for this edition. The first volume was seized on October 1907. By this time, most of the copies was sold out. The second and third parts (in one volume) were published in June 1908 and almost immediately the book was seized at the printing house. Publishers have received only a small part of copies. At the same time, the first volume was banned again. Even after Tolstoy's death, remain copies in the printing house were destroyed under a court decision.
OCLC locates four copies of these two volumes in the US: Stanford University, University of North Carolina, University of California, Library of Congress.
