Fine copy of this edition of the 'complete' works, the basis for all editions until the Revolution and including actually all works which Dostoevsky (1821-81) felt to be his best. The present publication is the fifth issue ('fourth edition') of the posthumous complete works prepared with the co-operation of A.G. Dostoevskaya, the author's wife; they include 147 letters written by Dostoevskiy to various people and a short, updated biography by V. Rozanov.

Bound for the celebrated English writer Maurice Baring (1874-1945). His bookplate was designed by his friend, the prolific writer Hilaire Belloc. The two men met in Oxford in 1897, and Belloc wrote on the ex-libris 'Here goes a ship with a cargo of books to the City of Dreams'. Interestingly, Baring's first significant publication related to Russia, being the 1905 With the Russians in Manchuria; he also edited The Oxford Book of Russian Verse.

Fifth issue ('fourth edition'); 12 vols; 8vo; contemporary half vellum over grey boards by Birdsall & Son, Northampton, flat spine lettered in black, top edges gilt; very lightly soiled.
