PUSHKIN, Alexander (1799-1837). Kavkazskii plennik, povest'. [A Prisoner of the Caucasus]. St Petersburg: Department of Public Education, 1828.

Second, revised edition of Pushkin’s second book, exceptionally rare, particularly uncut in the original wrappers. The publication of the first edition of this first ‘southern’ narrative poem in 1822 met with unqualified popularity and was quickly sold out. Two German translations were published in 1823 and 1824, unbeknownst to Pushkin - the second with the Russian text printed opposite. A rare book, with no records on ABPC/RBH. Kilgour 875n; Smirnov-Sokol'skii, Pushkin, 14.

Octavo (219 x 140mm). Uncut, in the original printed wrappers (spine repaired with a small loss); modern custom-made folding cloth box.
