The Master and Margarita
London: Collins and Harvill Press,, 1967. Translated from the Russian by Michael Glenny. Octavo. Original green and black boards, titles to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. An excellent, bright copy in the jacket with very minor rubbing to spine ends and a hint of toning to edges. First Glenny edition, first impression. Although the Glenny translation was beaten to the press by Mirra Ginsburg's translation earlier the same year, Ginsburg had taken as her copy text the heavily bowdlerized Soviet version. This version is complete and remains the standard English translation of one of the 20th century's literary masterworks. The Russian text was first published (albeit in censored form) in two issues of the journal Moskva in November 1966 and January 1967; the full text in Russian was not published until 1969.
