Dark Avenues by Ivan Bunin 1st / 1st 1949
First UK edition published by John Lehmann in 1949. Translated by Richard Hare. This is a very good copy. The Humphrey Spender dust wrapper is complete and hasn't been price clipped. There is minor wear to the spine ends and corners. There is a smattering of spotting to the text block and to the first and last couple of pages. Overall a very good copy.
A collection of short stories by the nobel laureate, mostly of russian life before the revolution. Regarded as Bunin's masterpiece. A very rare book and particularly so with the wrapper.
