Minimal rubbing to ends and corners, but an excellent copy. Illustrated frontispiece and five plates, additional vignettes in the text, by A. First edition of Pasternak's Russian translation of Goethe's masterpiece, presentation copy inscribed to a close friend and fellow poet, "to one of the most interesting people and the best poets of the present times, Simon Chikovani, with love and devotion, B. Pasternak, 9 February ", on the front free endpaper.
His brother was shot in the Great Purge in , and Chikovani came progressively to toe the party line. By the time Pasternak was publishing Faust, Chikovani had become deputy to the Supreme Soviet council in Georgia, though the two remained good friends.
This, he confesses in one of his letters, was no easy task. Mephistopheles is a creation not less remarkable in his own way than Faust, and upon the stage he is by far the more effective of the two, the outlines of his character being more distinct than those of his restless, wavering, unhappy comrade. In his answer Goethe acknowledged the justice of the strictures of his extremely candid friend, and announced his intention of completely recasting the work. Volume three has the rare vignettes to pages 3 and Even he could not hope to excel in all his many undertakings, but in everything he tried he gained enough of insight to enable him to distinguish sharply between good products and bad, and to appreciate and enjoy those wrought on true and enduring principles. Burgundy cloth-covered boards as folio covers. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
This copy has frequent pencil markings, presumably Chikovani's, largely to the introduction and notes. Pasternak was working on Dr Zhivago at this time, but was out of favour with Soviet censors and not permitted to publish his original work.

A translation of a world classic such as Goethe's Faust, however, was acceptable, and so Pasternak produced this high creative rendering, first published in book form in and reprinted several times. He had previously translated Shakespeare's Hamlet in , but it is Pasternak's Faust that carries the most considerable significance to his Zhivago. Most suggestively of all, the author's original subtitle for the novel, though later redacted, was "Opyt russkogo Fausta": A Russian Faust.
Yurii Zhivago's own thoughts on Faust, moreover, appear within the novel in his notebook ponderings at Varykino. Passages such as this were toned down in subsequent reprints. When parts of the translations were first published, the text was attacked in the Soviet Journal Novy Mir in , causing Pasternak, exasperated, to complain to a friend the exiled daughter of Marina Tsvetaeva of their "denouncing my Faust on the grounds that the gods, angels, witches, spirits, the madness of poor Gretchen, and everything 'irrational' has been rendered much too well, while Goethe's 'progressive' ideas what are they?
