Tolstoy, Leo. Voina i Mir (War and
Peace). Moscow, 1868-1869. Octavo, contemporary half Russian morocco. Six volumes
bound in three.
First edition of what is, perhaps, the world's
greatest novel. Ownership stamps of M. E. Savatiugin. Some soiling (as usual),
occasional marginal dampstaining (mostly to volume I), a few leaves with tape
repairs, closed tear to one leaf, occasional marginal notes and underlinings;
light scuffing to bindings. A very good copy of a most rare and desirable first
