New York: Leypoldt & Holt, 1867. First English language edition. Very Good. Translated from the Russian by Eugene Schuyler. This copy Very Good or a little better with blue boards mottled and small loss to the cloth at the lower spine. Internally the book is tight, with uncracked hinges and page block, pencil bookseller notations on end papers and light to moderate foxing throughout, as is common. Originally published in Russia in 1862, this book remains the author's most important literary contribution. It tracks the growing divide between generations of Russians who adopt western theories first of liberalism then nihilism. As with many other works of this period, it also follows the emotional growth and love interests of parallel characters. It's influence can be felt in later works by Tolstoy and Dostoevsky as well as numerous western authors. Along with Gogol's "Dead Souls," this work is considered one of the earliest modern Russian novels. Very Good.
