Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. "Eight Parts" in one volume. Very good in original dark blue cloth; modest rub to board corners, gilt titling and Romanov devices remain bright to both front board and spine. Hinges lovely but for some loosening of the back hinge (pictured). Plain cream-colored endpapers. Inscribed: With best wishes, From, Jim, November 11, 1904. Some minor foxing to front page edges. "1886" to copyright page; no later dates. No publisher's monogram to title page, no date to title page, NO additional titles from this author listed opposite title page (that page being blank), NO publisher's ads to back of book. It's generally accepted the first printings of this edition of Karenina are identified by lack of other Tolstoi titles facing title page -- later printings adding progressively more titles. The significance of the blank (as opposed to floral) endpapers, and of the absence of any publisher's ads to back of book, we do not know. 773 pp. including the glossary. First printing of the first English-language edition (preceding the British.).
