TURGENIEFF, Ivan; [TURGENEV, Ivan]. Fathers and Sons (Otsi i Dyeti). London: "Review of Reviews" Office, [c.1900].
Small 8vo., blue paper wraps printed in black, with advertisment of Van Houten's Cocoa to lower cover, and many others to the verso of wraps, including Hovis and Pears soap; pp. 60, [iv, ads]; some light spotting and marks to covers, the pages toned but else a lovely example.
An early, and possibly the first Abridged edition of Fathers and Sons, one of the most acclaimed Russian novels of the 19th century. This copy specially translated for the Masterpiece Library, No. 80 in the Penny Popular Novels series editied by W.T. Stead.
A rare ephemeral survival. OCLC records copies at just two locations (Carolina and NLS); COPAC adds no further.
