A first English edition of Lyof Tolstoï's The Invaders and Other Stories. New York, 1887. This English translation was edited by Nathan Haskell Dole. A polyglot, Dole had a particular obsession with Tolstoy.
The curious spelling of the author's name does little to obfuscate the fact that this collection of short stories is by the Russian literary master Leo Tolstoy.
