SUMMARY: Lolita is a novel by Vladimir Nabokov, written in English and published in 1955 in Paris, in 1958 in New York, and in 1959 in London. It was later translated by its Russian-native author into Russian. The novel is notable for its controversial subject: the protagonist and unreliable narrator, a 37-to-38-year-old literature professor called Humbert Humbert, is obsessed with the 12-year-old Dolores Haze, with whom he becomes sexually involved after he becomes her stepfather. "Lolita" is his private nickname for Dolores. After its publication, Lolita attained a classic status, becoming one of the best-known and most controversial examples of 20th century literature. The name "Lolita" has entered pop culture to describe a sexually precocious girl. The novel was adapted to film by Stanley Kubrick in 1962, and again in 1997 by Adrian Lyne. It has also been adapted several times for stage and has been the subject of two operas, two ballets, and an acclaimed but failed Broadway musical. BACKGROUND: Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov (also known by the pen name Vladimir Sirin; 22 April 1899 – 2 July 1977) was a Russian-American novelist. Nabokov's first nine novels were in Russian. He then rose to international prominence as a writer of English prose. He also made serious contributions as a lepidopterist and chess composer. Nabokov's Lolita (1955) is his most famous novel, and often considered his finest work in English. It exhibits the love of intricate word play and synesthetic detail that characterized all his works CONDITION: Condition is Good/Very Good. Some wear to edges/corners, vol. I has a water stain at bottom right corner, vol. II light water stain to bottom margins, visible on first/last few pages, rest have a slight rippling to that area, small blemish to upper front left of vol. I, few small slices at edges, little green onto edge of first/last couple page of one, bump to mid front hinge of case, few small repairs, previous owner added a little green color to flaking at edges/hinges of covers, everything together well, but would handle with care. Overall, for close to 60 years old they're in Good/Very Good Condition!!!. Bookseller Inventory # 000008

IMPORTANT FIRST EDITION OF A CLASSIC TWENTIETH CENTURY BOOK. Nabokov's most famous work, it was prevented entry into the United States and was not published here for many years after the first issuance of the book in Paris. To this day it remains a cornerstone book in the collecting of modern literature. Generally affordable copies of the proper first issue are not often encountered and thus ours represents a good opportunity to obtain this elusive work. Bookseller Inventory # 25850

First issue with the price of 900 francs on the rear panel of each volume. Octavo, 2 volumes, original green wrappers. In near fine condition with light wear to the extremities. "Brilliant One of the funniest and one of the saddest books that will be published this year" (New York Times). "Lolita blazes with a perversity of a most original kind. For Mr. Nabokov has distilled from his shocking material hundred-proof intellectual farce Lolita seems an assertion of the power of the comic spirit to wrest delight and truth from the most outlandish materials. It is one of the funniest serious novels I have ever read; and the vision of its abominable hero, who never deludes or excuses himself, brings into grotesque relief the cant, the vulgarity, and the hypocritical conventions that pervade the human comedy" (Atlantic Monthly).
