London: Collins & Harvill, 1958. First edition in English of the work which garnered Pasternak the Nobel Prize in literature. Octavo, original red cloth. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a small closed tear. A superior example of this literary highspot. In his 1958 New Yorker review, Edmund Wilson called the novel "one of the very great books of our time Doctor Zhivago will, I believe, come to stand as one of the great events in mans literary and moral history." It was not allowed to appear in the Soviet Union until 1987, twenty-seven years after the authors death. The novel was made into a film by David Lean in 1965, and since then has twice been adapted for television, most recently as a miniseries for Russian TV in 2006. (Inventory #: 5513)
