This title presents the sweeping love story of two people who defy the conventions of their age to follow the dictates of their hearts. Trapped in a stifling marriage, Anna Karenina is swept off her feet by the dashing Count Vronsky. When the truth about their passionate liaison comes out, Anna's husband is more concerned with keeping up appearances than anything else, but at last he seeks a reluctant divorce. Rejected by society, the two lovers flee to Italy, where Anna finds herself isolated from all except the man she loves, and who loves her. But can they live by love alone? In this novel of astonishing scope and grandeur, Leo Tolstoy, the great master of Russian literature, charts the course of the human heart.

Because there already exists so many reviews on the contents of Anna Karenina, I'll only describe this edition of the book, not what it's about.
This book is a part of the Collector's Library, which is a series of pocket sized books with very fine and thin pages. The tet is somewhat small, but I already knew that, so it wasn't a problem for me. However, if you have a bad eyesight, this series might not be the one for you.
It is bound in red cloth, with a dust jacket with an illustration on it. There are no illustrations on the inside, as some of the other books in this series have.
The edges of the pages are plated with a gold colour, and this makes the book look quite elegant in my opinion. Kind of old fashioned in a way. It also has a thin cloth bookmark attached to it.
I adore this series, so when Anna Karenina arrived in the mail, I was so glad to put it beside all the others. As this is the unabridged edition, and the book is quite small, it is a very thick book, but still manageable, so it shouldn't be a problem.
My overall impression is that this edition is a really nice, small, old fashioned and cute book, and it arrived in perfect condition, so I have nothing bad to say about it. 5 stars easily! :)
