Original light brown full leather, gilt titles and decorations, all edges gilt, silk moire endpapers, ribbon marker bound in. Translated by Jessie Coulson, with illustrations by Herbert Tauss. Mired in poverty, the student Raskolnikov nevertheless thinks well of himself. Of his pawnbroker he takes a different view, and in deciding to do away with her he sets in motion his own tragic downfall. Dostoyevsky's penetrating novel of an intellectual whose moral compass goes haywire, and the detective who hunts him down for his terrible crime, is a stunning psychological portrait, a thriller and a profound meditation on guilt and retribution.
