GOGOL, Nikolai. Selected Passages from Correspondence with Friends. Translated by Jesse Zeldin. Nashville, Vanderbilt University Press, 1969.
8vo. Original cloth with illustrated dust-wrappers; pp. xxvii, 271; apart from light marking to dust-wrappers a very good copy.
Uncommon first edition in English of Gogol's last work published during his lifetime, an important non-fiction work which defines Gogol's views on religion, morality, society, politics (rather unexpectedly conservative) and aesthetics, written in the form of personal letters.
