About This Item

1st UK edition based on the American Crowell sheets but without the preface. Translated by Nathan Haskell Dole. FOUR VOLUME set in full morocco.

Synopsis

War and Peace, a Russian novel by Leo Tolstoy, is considered one of the world's greatest works of fiction. It is regarded, along with Anna Karenina (1873–7), as his finest literary achievement. Epic in scale, War and Peace delineates in graphic detail events leading up to Napoleon's invasion of Russia, and the impact of the Napoleonic era on Tsarist society, as seen through the eyes of five Russian aristocratic families.  First titled '1805' the first installment was published in the January 1865 edition of  Russkiy Vestnik.  It ran in serial form for 2 years before Tolstoy reworked much of the manuscript before publishing it in 1869 as War and Peace.
