Anna Karenina

$ 39.95

First published in 1878, Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy is the tragic story of aristocrat Anna Karenina and her ill-fated affair with the cavalry officer Count Vronsky. Although passionately in love, the couple find their romance doomed by the sexual mores of their time and place, and the double standards that apply to men and women. The tale's panoramic sweep and Tolstoy's colorful depcition of Russia and the European continent are virtually unparallelled in world literature. This novel, in the estimation of William Faulkner, is "the best ever written."

This edition of the text is exquisitely bound in bonded-leather, with distinctive gilt edging and an attractive silk-ribbon bookmark. Decorative, durable, and collectible, these books offer hours of pleasure to readers young and old and are an indispensable cornerstone for any home library.
