Leo Tolstoy
Anna Karenina in Russkiy Vestnik(The Russian Herald)
Mikhail Katkov, 1875. First appearance in print of one of the greatest and most revered novels of all time.***The iconic novel was serialized in 13 installments starting in January 1875. This copy was created by a devoted reader who removed all the parts containing the story from all 13 issues of the journal and bound them into this single volume.*** Contemporary half-morocco, rebacked preserving the original gilt spine[owner name also in gilt at the bottom in Polish(?)].

Housed in a splendid, red half-morocco box with gilt tooled spine. *** Issues that contained Anna: 1875: January - April 1876: January - April & December 1877: January - April Collation: pp. [243]-336, [1], [742]-817, [2], [246]-316, [1], [572]- 641, [1], [305]-390, [679]-745, [1], [291]-339, [1], [641]-693, [1], [687]-737, [1], [267]-324, [1], [830]-898, [329]-382, [709]- 763, [1]. [448]-460. *** Due to a political disagreement between Tolstoy and the conservative journal's publisher, Mikhail Katkov, the last part of the story was never printed.
