The Master and Margarita.
Translated from the Russian by Michael Glenny.New York, Harper & Row, 1967 Stock Code: 139527
NotesFirst US edition, first printing, of the Michael Glenny translation, originally published in the UK in the same year. This is a particularly bright copy.
The Glenny translation was preceded in 1967 by Mirra Ginsburg's who took as her copy text the bowdlerized Soviet version, which had large portions excised. Glenny's version, being complete, is preferred, and is the standard English translation of one of the 20th century's literary masterworks.
Octavo. Original black cloth, red and gilt titles to spine. With the dust jacket.
An excellent, bright copy, with only minimal rubbing to ends and corners.
