War and Peace.New York: William S. Gottsberger, 1886 Stock Code: 112666
NotesFirst 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.
6 volumes in 3, small octavo. Attractively bound in recent dark green morocco, titles and decoration to spines gilt, raised bands, single rule to boards gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt edges.
Some browning to pages, a very good set.
