Doctor Zhivago.

Description

Set in Imperial Russia, the novel opens in the early years of the twentieth century and follows the tragic love story between Yuri Zhivago and Lara Guichard through both World War I and the upheaval of the Russian Revolution. Filmed by David Lean in 1965 starring Omar Sharif and Julie Christie.

Banned in the Soviet Union, due to the author’s independent-minded stance on the October Revolution.

Description

First U.K. edition. 8vo., publisher’s red cloth boards, complete with rare Nobel Prize winner wrap-around band, faint spotting to endpapers, a few small chips to upper edge, not price-clipped or sun-faded, a near fine example.
