Notes

First editions in English, first printings (with all title pages dated 1886 and the corrected Gottsberger imprint to versos), translated into English by Clara Bell (1835-1927). Gottsberger published Tolstoy's masterpiece as a trilogy of individual two volume novels, issued separately in uniform cloth at 1.75, which together form the complete work. A very nice set.
