About this Item

Two volumes. 4to and 12mo; frontispiece profile portrait of Nabokov as a "shade". One of 200 numbered copies, designed and produced by Andrew Hoyem, printed on mouldmade paper. Bound in iridescent purple cloth, with inset gold cloth disks for gilt titling. Fine as issued, in gold cloth slipcase. The second volume provides a second copy of the poem "Pale Fire" for reference, which is printed in a format resembling that of the manuscript of the poet John Shade as described in the novel (eighty ruled index cards). As far as we are aware this is the only fine press treatment of any Nabokov novel. Bookseller Inventory # 28728
