Lolita [First Russian Edition]
New York, August, 1967. The first edition in Russian of Nabokov's masterpiece. This copy is from the library of Marina Ledkovsky, Nabokov's niece. Nabokov translated the work himself. Putnam was not interested in publishing the work due to doubts about its commercial potential. A bright near fine copy with two interior pages slightly misbound by the publisher and sticking out of the top of the pages by a couple of millimeters. Jacket is very good minus with a triangular chip of about an inch to the top of the rear panel, tears with loss along four inches of the top edge (including the head of spine) and some closed tears and small chips at seams. An attractive copy. Bookseller Inventory # SP241
