THE MASTER AND MARGARITA ... Translated from the Russian by Michael Glenny. London: Collins and Harvill Press, [1967]. Octavo, boards. First printing (British issue) of this translation. The best translation of Bulgakov's posthumously published satirical masterpiece which is not only his finest work but is regarded by many to be the finest twentieth-century Russian novel. It was first published in Moscow in the Winter of 1966-1967 in two issues of MOSKVA. About 23,000 words omitted from the MOSKVA version were added to the Harvill-Collins and Harper & Row text. THE MASTER AND MARGARITA was begun in 1928 and Bulgakov worked on it intermittently until his death in 1940. "A magnificent fantasy reflecting the author's bitter frustration at the stifling of his career ... A masterpiece of tragedy and grotesquerie; one of the finest fantastic novels of the period." - Barron, ed., Fantasy and Horror 5-42. Very slight spine lean (as is usually the case), mild bruises to three corner tips, else a fine copy in fine dust jacket priced 30s net on the front flap. An excellent copy overall. (#173278).
