Notes

First translation into English from the original Russian, UK issue. This translation was the work of American editor and translator Nathan Haskell Dole (1852-1935), issued in the same year in the US and UK, with the UK issue published in four volumes and omitting the translator's preface (Walter Scott reissued the work in two volumes in 1897). Two versions of War and Peace in English had been issued prior to Dole's version, both in 1886, but neither was translated directly from the Russian, using instead an intermediary French translation.
