New York: William S. Gottsberger, 1886. First Edition in English. Translated from the French by Clara Bell. Six volumes. Publisher’s decorated cloth; six volumes; an excellent set, with only very slight wear. Each pair of volumes in cloth (Before Tilsit, The Invasion, Borodino) was issued at $1.75. Like Ulysses, War and Peace is often read under the discipline of a college assignment; many well-meaning literate people intend to devote themselves to it someday but never quite accomplish it.
