Resurrection. A novel.
The Brotherhood Publishing Co. 1900 - In an unusual tall format, 8.5 x 21cm. Half title, vignette title, 4pp ads; occasional light foxing. Orig. pale green course-grained paper wrappers, lettered in gilt; sl. faded. v.g. Voskresenie, 1899. This is the first English book edition, translated by Louise Maude; a note on the verso of the half title indicates that it is ?made up of the original [13] penny parts?, and that the proceeds of this publication ?will be devoted to the assistance of the Doukhobors, who are now settling in Canada? The parts publications appeared between March 1899 and March 1900. The Doukhobors were a Christian sect who were persecuted in Russia for, among other things, their unwillingness to engage in conflict. With the assistance of the Canadian government, some 7500 members were transported from Russia to Canada at the beginning of the 20th century. Tolstoi, whose anti-institutional theories of religion made him a natural ally of the Doukhobors, wrote the work with the express purpose of assisting their plight. Line: Tolstoi 90. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
