         August 1914.

      Farrar, Straus and Giroux, New York 1972 - Early printing of the Solzhenitsyn's epic novel of Russian history. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed and dated by Alexander Solzhenitsyn on the title page. Fine in a near fine price-clipped dust jacket. Jacket design Guy Fleming. Translated by Michael Glenny. "A grand meditation on history, a masterly re-creation of people and faces caught up in the sweep of time, symbolized by a rolling fiery red wheel. The work is breathtaking in scope . . . Much credit for its power must go to Mr. Willetts's superb translation," thought the The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal concluded that "it is now clear that [Solzhenitsyn] towers over all his contemporaries, European, American, and Latin American . . . The greatness of Russia is in this novel as it has not been in any work of fiction since the generation of Dostoevski and Tolstoy." [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
