Through Russia: A Book of Stories (the Greatest Masterpieces of Russian Literature Series)
London, Heron Books. 1967, First Thus. Red Leatherette Sewn Binding, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Book, Over my head hung chestnut trees decked with gold; at my feet lay a mass of chestnut leaves which resembled the amputated palms of human hands; on the opposite bank, where there waved, tanglewise, the stripped branches of a hornbeam, an orange-tinted woodpecker was darting to and fro, as though caught in the mesh of foliage--by Maxim Gorky. In luxurious faux-leather bright red covers, lavish gilt gold tooling & scrolling, silken bookmark, decorative end papers, portrait frontis, original illustrations, no inscriptions, spine and boards are in very good plus condition, moisture marks with red color transfer (no musty smell) on page margins of front and rear end papers (the red color transfer is small and on the first few front pages; transfer on rear is for about twenty pages before it decreases in scope to nothing); will still look great on your bookshelf since the moisture damage does not show on the outside of the boards. 276pp. Ships in a box, no bubble mailers!. Good +.
