The Master and Margarita.
Translated from the Russian by Michael Glenny.London: Collins and Harvill Press, 1967 Stock Code: 132074
First Glenny edition, first impression. Although the Glenny translation was beaten to the press in 1967 by that of Mirra Ginsburg, Ginsburg had taken as her copy text the heavy bowdlerized Soviet version. This version is complete and remains the standard English translation of one of the 20th century's literary masterworks.
Octavo. Finely bound by the Chelsea Bindery in red morocco, titles and decoration to spine gilt, raised bands, single rule to boards gilt, twin rule to turn-ins, dark blue endpapers, gilt edges.
A fine copy.
