Description:
Good. This volume was printed on poor quality paper and rarely survives. Splitting to edge of fragile paper spine. Usual browning/foxing. 46 p. Text in Russian. With author's portrait. This is the second published appearance (and first in book form) of Solzhenitsyn's hugely controversial first book, originally published in the magazine Novy Mir two months earlier. By this time, Solzhenitsyn's ability to publish in his homeland was in jeopardy. Though a number of minor pieces would appear in periodicals, this was the first and last major publication of his work during the Soviet regime.

Original exceedingly rare Russian Language 1st (Pirate) Edition of Doctor Zhivago by Boris Pasternak. Meets all the issue points for the true 1st Edition - "Roman" to title page, 634 pages, publishers imprint in cyrillic, and 2 page introduction (lacking from later Russian editions). Unusually tight, bright, Very Good condition, with no inscriptions and only light toning to closed page edges. Several gatherings are unevenly browned as usual, due to differing paper stocks used in printing. Issued without a dust-jacket.The publication of the Russian text of Doctor Zhivago was attended by odd circumstances. It first appeared in a 'pirated' (or possibly semi-authorised) edition, a short time before Feltrinelli's official edition came out in Milan. The 'pirated' version, however, bore Feltrinelli's imprint and were produced by Mouton, the reputable firm of Dutch printers with whom he was negotiating, and to whom he had sent the manuscript. Declassified documents reveal that the CIA sought to embarrass the… Read More
