A Country Doctor's Notebook by Mikhail Bulgakov 1st + Proof 1975

A Country Doctor's Notebook by Mikhail Bulgakov 1st + Proof 1975


First UK edition and Uncorrected Proof published by Collins in 1975. This is a very good set. The wrapper of the book has some sun fading to the spine and a tiny amount of wear to the spine ends and corners. It is not price clipped. The book has some very faint foxing marks to the text block. The proof has a small tear to the front panel and a crease. There is a pen mark to the bottom of the first page. Overall a very good set. 


A Country Doctor's Notebook, is a short story collection and is a hard title to find as a UK first. Comes with the scarce proof copy. The stories were written in the 1920s and inspired by Bulgakov's experiences as a newly graduated young doctor in 1916-18, practicing in a small village hospital in Smolensk Governorate in revolutionary Russia. The stories initially appeared in Russian medical journals of the period and were later compiled into book form.
