A fine onlaid bindingFirst edition in English, first impression, of Pasternak's classic novel. First published in Italy in 1957, the original manuscript had been smuggled out of the Soviet Union in the same year. It was an immediate success and has been adapted to screen a number of times, most famously in the 1965 film adaptation staring Omar Sharif, Julie Christie, and Alec Guinness. Pasternak won the Nobel Prize for Literature the same year as this edition's publication.
