London: John and Robert Maxwell, . First edition thus. Very Good. Very rare edition of Taras Bulba printed in London circa 1887 by John and Robert Maxwell. Worldcat lists just three other copies of this book, all in Australia and New Zealand. Our best guess is that this same Hapgood translation as used for the American and British printings was also made into an export edition for Australia and New Zealand. Book Very Good with darkened spine, some chips and dings, a bit of cocking to the spine and separation at both inner hinges. A famous "short" story by Gogol, although quite long by modern standards, portraying an accurate cross-section of Russian life. Offered here in a very rare edition.
