Very good copy of the first edition authorised by Solzhenitsyn, who had an agreement with the YMCA Press in Paris from the early 1970s, although his works continued to be pirated in London and elsewhere.

'The primary project of my life', first conceived in 1936, is the cycle of historical novels of the birth of the USSR entitled Red Wheel (Krasnoe koleso), of which the only 'knot' yet published in its entirety is August 1914. Starting with the debacle of the Russian army in East Prussia at the beginning of World War I and interweaving the destinies of numerous fictional and historical characters, it aims at an interpretation of the October Revolution comparable in breadth and depth to War and Peace for the War of 1812.
