New York: Phaedra, 1965. First Edition, First State. Hardcover. Item #900654
First Edition, First State with publisher's address on copyright page and Trident Press on rear dust wrapper flap. Nabokov's 4th novel, written in Russian in 1930, and first translated into English by his son Dmitri in 1965. With a new foreword by the author.
Set in Berlin among Russian emigres, the first novel in which Nabokov uses a first-person narrator whose individualistic perspective challenges the reader to differentiate between the narrator's fantasy and our collective reality.
A bit of faint staining to fore-edge, else fine in very good soiled, price-extant dust wrapper with tiny tear rear bottom-edge, in protective mylar.
