Description

Step into the depths of 19th-century Russian society with this remarkable 1977 edition of Fathers and Sons, a timeless masterpiece by Ivan Turgenev, meticulously crafted by the esteemed Easton Press.

Fathers and Sons stands as a landmark in literary realism, powerfully exploring the eternal conflict between generations. Its narrative, set amidst the backdrop of rural Russia, navigates the tumultuous relationship between Arkady Kirsanov, a young graduate fresh from University, and his father, Nikolai, a member of the old aristocracy. This poignant portrayal of clashing ideologies speaks volumes about the tensions that arose in the wake of serfdom's abolition in Russia.

As Turgenev's tale unfolds, the golden accents of this leatherbound edition seem to shimmer with a deeper meaning, reflecting the timeless quality of the themes within its pages. In this edition, the profound and moving story of Fathers and Sons is given new life through the evocative illustrations of Fritz Eichenberg. His artistry illuminates the complex characters and adds an extra layer of depth to this essential exploration of societal change.

The hardcover is bound in rich, full-grain leather, capturing the essence of an era marked by its distinct austerity and elegance. The book’s hubbed spine hints at the durability of the values and traditions embedded within the story of Fathers and Sons, while its gilded edges glow with the enduring relevance of Turgenev's keen insights.

Inside, the archival-quality paper ensures the preservation of Turgenev's text in Fathers and Sons, and a silk ribbon page marker lets you pause your journey through the societal landscapes of Russia, resuming it whenever you desire.

A classic in every sense, this edition of Fathers and Sons represents not just a captivating story, but the blend of aesthetics and literary prowess. It is more than a book; it's a journey through a critical period in Russian history, a study of generational divides, and a testament to the power of literature. Secure this leatherbound edition for your collection, and embrace the richness of Turgenev's narrative time and time again.

Book Care

Taking proper care of your leatherbound and vintage books can significantly extend their lifespan and preserve the beauty of their binding. Here are some general guidelines to ensure your precious books last for generations:

  • Avoid Direct Sunlight: Over time, direct sunlight can cause the leather to fade and degrade. Always store your books away from direct sunlight.
  • Keep Books Dry: Leather and humidity don't mix well. Keep your books in a dry, well-ventilated environment to prevent mold growth.
  • Avoid High Temperatures: High heat can dry out the leather, leading to cracks. Room temperature is ideal for your books.
  • Clean Regularly: Dust your books with a soft cloth. For deeper cleaning, consider a gentle leather cleaner, but always spot-test first.
  • Handle with Clean Hands: Oils and dirt from your hands can damage the pages and leather over time. Ensure your hands are clean and dry before handling.
