Vladimir Nabokov
Speak, Memory
First UK edition and first print published by Gollancz in 1951. This is a very good ++ copy. The very fragile first issue gollancz wrapper (without the daily mail insignia on the spine) has a small chip to the top of the spine and is price clipped. Otherwise it is very clean and complete. It is rare to find the wrapper in such nice shape. The book also comes with the original daily mail wraparound band. The green boards are very bright and there is very little if any wear to the corners or edges. There a couple of light small scorch marks to the front free end paper and back end paper. Overall condition is very good ++ and scarce in first issue and with the band.
Bookseller: The Plantagenet King [UK]
