DOCTOR ZHIVAGO. Boris Pasternak. DOCTOR ZHIVAGO.
New York: Pantheon Books, (2010). A new translation of Pasternak's masterpiece, first edition thus. This translation by Richard Pevear & Larissa Volokhonsky, the award-winning translators of WAR AND PEACE and ANNA KARENINA, was issued to mark the 50th anniversary of Pasternak's death. Reception of the translation has been mixed, with Pasternak's niece in particular leveling criticism at the pair, "It is quickly apparent that [they] follow the Russian very closely, without attempting to reconfigure its syntax or vocabulary into a more English form. This misguided literalism is disastrous in dialogue." Others have called the new translation more faithful to the original and even niece Ann Pasternak Slater allows that ommisions from the hastily produced 1958 translation(s) have been restored. Fine in slightly rumpled, near fine dust jacket. Unaccountably scarce.

MY SISTER-LIFE. Boris Pasternak, illustrator Yuri Kuper. MY SISTER-LIFE.
Yuri Kuper. [New York]: Limited Editions Club, (1991). First of this edition. One of 250 numbered copies Illustrated with six original etchings by Yuri Kuper SIGNED by the illustrator on the colophon page, and this copy with each etching signed in pencil by Yuri Kuper -- though not issued as such. One of the smallest limitations of the club. Translated by Mark Rudman. "In Russian poetry, Boris Pasternak's My Sister-Life is the equivalent of The Waste Land, Spring and All, and Harmonium. But it is also accessible to the general reader, and belongs on a slender shelf of great love poems . . . Pasternak is an uncompromisingly complex poetic stylist, and his meticulous attention to structure, etymology, and the phonetic qualities of words makes his poetry a formidable challenge for the translator. Mark Rudman renders Pasternak's poetic masterpiece with verve and intelligence" (from cover of recent Northwestern University edition). Large folio (16 x 23") with gray goatskin spine and treated handmade paper boards using the same paper as the text. Housed in a slipcase of gray linen-rayon. Printed letterpress on paper made by hand to resemble the sort of stock produced in the 1920s in the Soviet Union. Monthly Letter laid in. A beautiful edition printed on handmade paper recycling various Cyrillic printings. Kuper's work is found in the permanent collections of MoMA, Moscow Museum of Fine Arts, Fonds National d'Art Contemporain in Paris, etc. Publishers' newsletter laid in. Fine in a fine slipcase. WITH EACH PRINT SIGNED BY THE ARTIST, YURI KUPER.
