Doktor Zhivago. (Doctor Zhivago - first Russian edition). Authorised edition in Russian.

PASTERNAK, Boris.

Milano Milan: Feltrinelli Editore, 1959. Hardcover. VG. First Russian edition. Publication April or May 1959. The hand-written date on the f.e.p. may even refer to the publication date. Original pale green paper-covered boards, lettered in black with publisher's mark in black to spine, echoed on dust-wrapper. 'Prima edizione in lingua italiana:novembre 1957... ' to half-title verso. Ampelio Tettamanti illustrated dust-wrapper (c.f. Feltrinelli 1957 Italian edition). Price of 42s. net. to front flap. Contents list numbered p.567. Book in very good condition. Fragile dust-wrapper very neatly reinforced inside edges and folds. Usual browning of paper-edges and off-setting to endpapers. Inscribed "To Nina with much love Wanda, 1959". Used; Very Good Significant publication. First published in this form at the end of April 1959 or beginning of May. Much has been published on the early editions of Dr Zhivago as the accuracy of the text caused much dispute as well as the legalities of publication. Although Feltrinelli had a contract with Pasternak to be the first to publish the Russian edition (after the Italian translation in 1957), there exists both an unauthorised earlier Mouton edition published The Hague, 1958, and a 1959 'Michigan' edition published only after a wrangle with Feltrinelli. Even after Feltrinelli's eventual publication in April or May 1959 many questions raised remained unanswered. Needless to say, the London-based publisher, Alex Flegon also published his own editions.

Doktor Zhivago.

PASTERNAK, Boris.

Hardback. 1961. 567pp Feltrinelli, Milan 1961. The revised & corrected Feltrinelli Russian language edition. 'When Pasternak saw the Mouton edition, he complained to his friends in the West that the number of misprints were so significant that they made the novel look like a different novel than the one he had written, which led to the preparation of a revised Russian edition. Jacqueline de Proyart accepted the heavy burden of revising the text, which was published by Feltrinelli in 1961'. (Paolo Mancosu, Smugglers, Rebels, Pirates. 2015). Very good copy in slightly snagged dust jacket. .

PASTERNAK, Boris

Ann Arbor: Michigan University Press, 1959. Hardcover. VG. Original cloth, gilt lettered. Owner inscription neatly blacked out on front free endpaper, scrape resulting in tear to dust-wrapper on upper cover, dust-wrapper yellowing at edges but not greatly. Apart from tear to d.w. a very good, bright and tight copy. Used; Very Good Second printing of Rausen 'Michigan' edition. In original brick-red cloth, with dust-wrapper designed by Ronald Stachowiak, priced at $6.50 (Kroch and Brentano label) and with 'Michigan' in Roman and Cyrillic to spine base. The first 5,000 printed, over-subscribed and therefore quickly reprinted, were published without a dust-wrapper and spine printed only with author and title. The two printings contain minor typographical differences. The contract to publish the first printing (supposed to be 1958) was actually only fully signed on 31st December 1959.
