DOSTOIEVSKI, Fedor Michailovitch.
Crime and punishment. Translated from Russian by Victor Derély. Paris, Librairie Plon, 1884. 2 volumes in-12 (184 x 117 mm) of 2 ff.n.ch. 334 pp. for volume I; 2 ff.n.ch. 308 pp. for volume II; olive semi-percaline, smooth back, yellow printed covers preserved (contemporary binding).
Original edition of the first French translation of the book, which "was the first of the great novels that made Dostoyevsky's name famous abroad. He was, and still is, the most famous and popular of them, perhaps because of the immediate and captivating influence that a subject with a police theme inevitably has" (Laffont-Bompiani).
Copy with large margins, paper and covers slightly yellowed; small wear and tear on the slightly exposed binding.
