Description

August 1914, The Red Wheel, Knot 1 (signed, limited edition, 1989)
by Solzhenitsyn, Aleksandr Isaevich

"New" ed. SIGNED LIMITED EDITION OF 200 COPIES. Hard cover. Farrar Straus Giroux, New York, NY (1989)

Very good in very good slipcase. Sewn binding. Cloth over boards. 854 p. O'Hara Dynasty, 1. Farrar Straus Giroux, N.Y., 1989. Hardcover Book (no dust jacket) in slipcase. Limited Edition. A clean and tight hardcover copy in slipcase. SIGNED LIMITED EDITION OF 200 COPIES. This is copy no. 181, Signed by Solzhenitsyn. This is a very nice, clean copy that appears unread. The covers of the book are bright red cloth with black and gold decorations, and the slipcase is covered with black cloth. The book has a yellow satin bookmark sewn into the binding. The spine of the book is sunfaded to a light red. For some unknown reason, the slipcase of this book is too tight. I had an extremely difficult time removing the book from the slipcase, and have left it out because I am afraid that trying to force it back in might damage the book. The slipcase itself is in very good condition with a few scuffs and rubs. The book would be in fine condition, except for the faded spine and a small bit of soil on the top edge of the pages. I have no idea why it fits so tightly in the slipcase. I will leave the book outside the slipcase for shipping. More photos/scans available on request.

This book is the "new" expanded edition of "August 1914." From Wikipedia:
"In 1984 a new version of the novel, much expanded, was published in an English translation by H.T. Willetts. By this time Solzhenitsyn had been a resident of the USA for some years and was therefore able to publish chapters hitherto suppressed, as well as new parts written after extensive research at the library of the Hoover Institution. These included chapters on Vladimir Lenin, which were published separately as Lenin in Zurich, and several chapters dealing with Prime Minister Pyotr Stolypin, as well as with the background and personality of Stolypin's murderer, Dmitri Bogrov, and the suspected involvement of the Tsarist Secret Police in Stolypin's assassination."

Guaranteed as described or returnable. Orders are shipped within 2 business days by United States Postal Service Priority Mail. Shipping and insurance are FREE within the USA. (Surface mail shipping charges apply to all addresses outside the USA.)
