The success of "War and peace" readers was the obvious and selling the first four volumes (1st ed.) novel (the first three volumes came out in December 1867, and the fourth in March 1868) was so good that it took the second edition.

In the fifth edition of the collected works of Tolstoy (1886) text of "War and peace" was restored for the publication of 1868-1869 years, the French text and the historical-philosophical fragments introduced to their former places. The text of the edition was divided into four volumes, and volumes into parts. According to famous literary critic, doctor of philological Sciences Mstislav Alexandrovich Savelovskogo part L. N.

Zyablovsky in the article "How to write and published the novel "War and peace" writes: "Thus, the division of the text of the novel in the edition of 1886 represents a combination of tick marks on Toms editions 1873 and 1880 and departments on the part of the publications 1868-1869 G. of Course, doing so without the participation of Leo Tolstoy Sofia Andreevna could not, could not, without permission of the author and to restore the French text. Done both, presumably, N. N. Insurance, since 1870 took part in the publications of Tolstoy's works... But Fears without the consent of Leo Tolstoy, of course, would not allow himself to make something new in the works of Tolstoy, and why we need to assume that some proportion of the Thick to the division into four volumes and unit them, and also to the restoration of the French text "hand made". That expressed his "last will" in relation to the text of the novel "War and peace", the canonical text which you have to admit the text of 1886, or, more precisely, second edition, 1868-1869," the Greatest rarity!
