Notes: Scarce, and an excellent copy. The second of Garnett's important translations in this series, which brought the work of Dostoevsky to a wider Anglophone audience and instituted a literary craze. Though without mark of ownership, this copy originally belonged to Edmund C. Yates - the son of Edmund H. Yates, editor of World magazine and a close friend of Dickens.
