London: Walter Scott, [1889] - 4 volumes, octavo. Contemporary tan polished calf by John Bumpus, spines gilt-lettered direct and with floral motifs in compartments, board edges gilt with dotted roll, turn-ins gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. A little occasional rubbing to extremities, a very good copy. With the half-titles.

This English issue omits the preface to the American edition but retains Dole's editorial footnotes. Walter Scott reissued the work in two volumes in 1897. The English translation was preceded by Vizetelly's truncated version and by Clara Bell's translation from the French, both 1886. Dole was the editor of Tolstoi's Collected Works (20 volumes, 1899).
