War and Peace
Vizetelly & Co, London 1886 - The first UK edition, and the first translation into English, just preceding the US Clara Bell translation of the same year. Volumes one and two are first editions, the third volume is a second edition, but they appear always have been together as a set, all three having the same two bookplates to the front endpapers and inside front boards. They are bound in the original blue/grey cloth, lettered and bordered in red and navy blue, volume one has been re-cased at some point and the spine re-lined, but is complete, volumes two and three are reasonably firmly bound, though slightly cracked and tender at points, volume two has a September 1886 catalogue to the rear. The boards are slightly stained and the spines have faded, the corners and spine ends are slightly bumped and rubbed. The text blocks are a little foxed and age toned, mainly to the edges, the majority of the pages being clean, there are the bookplates already noted, but no inscriptions. A very uncommon set, particularly so in original cloth. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
