First Constance Garnett translated editions, first impressions. Garnett (1861–1946) was the wife of literary critic Edward Garnett and herself a highly acclaimed translator of Russian literature recognised for introducing authors such as Tolstoy to the general British public.

6 volumes, octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine and top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Frontispiece in both volumes of Anna Karenina. Lightly rubbed and bumped at corners and ends of spine, light off setting to endpapers. A very attractive set.
