Leypoldt & Holt, New York 1867 - First translation into English of Turgenev's great novel, first published in Moscow five years earlier, and the first publication of any of Turgenev's works in the United States. In this tale of young intellectuals struggling to live in accordance with their ideals, Turgenev introduced the term "nihilism" to a broader Western readership: "Yes, before we had Hegelians; now there are nihilists. We shall see what you will do to exist in nothingness, in the vacuum, as if under an air-pump. And now, my dear brother, have the goodness to ring the bell; I should like my cocoa." The copy of translator Eugene Schuyler, with his bookplate. A near-fine copy, handsomely bound, with an excellent association. Octavo, contemporary red morocco lettered in gilt over marbled boards, raised bands, top edge gilt, marbled endpapers, pages uncut. Bound without publisher's advertisements at rear. Bookplate of translator Eugene Schuyler to front pastedown. Light shelfwear. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
