Descripción:

Milano; Feltrinelli, n. d. [late 1958 or early 1959]. First official, or first trade edition in Russian. 22x14,5 cm. (3, 1 blank), 566, (1, 1 blank) pp. Publisher?s green boards with pictorial dustjacket. The jacket is price-clipped and a bit chipped at extremities. Spine ends and corners are slightly bumped, and there is a small pressure mark on front board. Contents are clean but a bit toned in margins, as should be expected. There is a small separation between the half title and the title leaf, and a minimal hole in the gutter between rear free endpaper and rear board. A gift inscription in Cyrillic on front free endpaper. This edition is often referred to as the first Russian, but it was in fact preceded by the limited edition by Mouton in The Hague, published in late 1958 (cf. Biondi, Working and typesetting manuscript trees and the first and early editions of Doctor Zhivago, in the magazine Firsts, June 2003). Pasternak finished the novel in late 1955, but was never able to publish it in the Soviet Union, since it had been turned down by the official stately publisher, Goslitizdat. Several typescripts of the novel reached Western Europe and a number of translations were initiated, based on the different versions. Feltrinelli?s Italian edition of 1957 was the first to be published. Since Pasternak was a candidate for the 1958 Nobel Prize for literature, both Feltrinelli and Mouton wished to publish the novel in Russian before August, should the novel be considered by the Swedish Academy as a part of Pasternak?s literary achievement, and Mouton carried this out shortly before Feltrinelli.

Descripción [The Hague, C. Mouton, 1959] under the imprint: Milan, Feltrinelli, 1958 (in Cyrillic). 634 pp. Orig. publishers blue cloth, lettered in gilt to the spine, no dustjacket (as issued). - Cover with some light shelfwear & some occasional spotting.Exceedingly rare copy of the unofficial CIA-Mouton pirat edition of Doctor Zhivago, one of the most famous Russian novels of the 20th century, which earned Pasternak the Nobel Prize for Literature. - The real first edition of Doctor Zhivago in Russian, printed by Mouton in The Hague at the end of august (or early september) 1958 in a limited edition of 1160 copies on behalf of the CIA (with support from the Dutch intelligence agency BVD) with the false imprint of Feltrinelli, Milan, 1958. With the parental name Leonidovich and the imprint of Feltrinelli (in Cyrillic) on the title-page and a preface of two pages (dated August 1, 1958). - - The CIA were quick to realise the propaganda potential of the novel. Already in 1957 agents expressed (in recent declassified memos) a disire to obtain a copy of the work in order to assist in its publication in Russia. The strategy behind the issue of this this illegal unauthorized edition was to get the book available earlier than the publisher Feltrinelli had planned, so that the CIA was able to distribute the book among the large number of Soviet visitors who were expected to visit the International Fair in Brussels in 1958. The book was finally (a.o.) distributed to Soviet visitors at the international fair by a Russian speaking priest in a somewhat protected part of the Vatican Pavilion. The publication of this Russian edition was part of a larger strategy of the CIA to undermine the USSR. It was expected the book would not only cause outrage but would sow doubts in the Soviet population about why such a book by one of their leading writers should not appear. After decades of underground circulation, the novel was finally published officially in Russia in 1988. # Cf. Peter Finn & Petra Couvée, The Zhivago Affair (2014). Nº de ref. del artículo: 283302
