Item Description: Paris: The Olympia Press, 1957. Soft Cover. Book Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. Limited edition of 5,000 numbered copies. Publisher's yellow paper wrappers, blue title panels to the front wrapper and spine, lettered in black and yellow. About near fine, with some light rubbing to the extremities, a hint of toning to the spine, minor soiling to the wrappers, else fine. A clean and pleasing example of a scarce title. L'Affaire Lolita is a pamphlet regarding the publication and censorship of Vladimir Nabokov's 1955 novel Lolita, which tells the story of Humbert Humbert, a professor of literature with a penchant for pre-teen "nymphets." Despite the fact that it was originally published in Paris by the Olympia Press, Lolita was banned in France in 1955; at the behest of the British government, who had also banned the novel, the French authorities seized twenty-five of the Olympia Press' works, including Lolita. Shortly thereafter, Maurice Girodias, founder of the press, dubbed the controversy "l'affaire Lolita" in reference to the 1890s Dreyfus Affair and what the French press had dubbed "l'affaire Miller" when Tropic of Cancer was banned several years prior. Girodias published this pamphlet in order to garner support for his protest of the ban - a lawsuit which he ultimately won. Specifically, this volume includes Girodias' article "L'affaire Lolita," an essay by Nabokov, selections from Lolita, and selected other essays, all of which are printed in French.
