Thirteen volume set of stories by Anton Chekhov (1860-1904) published by Ecco in honor of the 35th anniversary of the imprint.  This is a reissue of Constance Garnett's 1929 13–volume Tales of Chekhov, heralded as one of the finest Chekhov translations ever.

Anton Chekhov's short fiction is admired and cherished by readers the world over.  This stunning boxed set brings together the largest, most comprehensive selection of his stories, all full of humor, truth, and vast insight.  Included are the familiar masterpieces–"The Kiss," "The Darling," and "The Lady with the Dog"––as well as several brilliant but lesser–known tales such as "A Blunder," "Hush!," and "Champagne."  The entire collection is introduced by Richard Ford's perceptive essay "Why We Like Chekhov, while each individual volume includes a brief reminiscence on the meaning of Chekhov from a celebrated author, among them Nadine Gordimer, Susan Sontag, Harold Brodkey, Cynthia Ozick, and Russell Banks.  Amidst a sea of Chekhov translations, Constance Garnett, who brought Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky, and Turgenev to the English–speaking world, has a style particularly suited to Chekhov's prose.  Her benchmark translations enable readers to immerse themselves in his world, experiencing the breadth of his talent in one voice.

Boxed set in paperboard slipcase is sealed in plastic.
