Lolita Vladimir Nabokov ~ True First 1st/1st Olympia Press Edition ~ Custom Case
Paris: Olympia Press, 1955. Beautiful 2 volume set of a very nice condition copy of the True First Printing with 900 francs clearly on the lower rear corner of both covers in a handsome custom clam-shell case ~ first appearance of Nabokov's controversial novel. Lolita ~ Vladimir Nabokov ~ True First 1st/1st Edition ~ 2 Paperback Volumes ~ Olympia Press ~ Paris ~ 1955 Custom Clamshell case Description: Softcover. Condition: VG+. First Edition. In original green wraps. First edition, first printing in two volumes. 188pp/223pp. All First Edition points confirmed: both volumes with first issue "900 francs" prices and no traces of stickers, 1st volume with pages misnumbered to skip pages 11 and 12 (no pages missing from book). Condition: Quite a nice set overall, has been protected for a very long time in a custom built clamshell box. Wraps are very bright and colors consistent, no fading. Spine just slightly (and typically) creased. Covers well attached and binding solid. Just a slight bit of edgewear and slight bit of wear to the spine edges. Volume 1 has what appears to be a small ink stain on the top edge, mostly just on the surface of the edge and just slighly penetrating down on the the top edge of a few pages. Otherwise interior pages spotless, no markings or writing. Overall a very lovely copy of this fragile edition housed in an appealing early clamshell box covered with greenish/tan linen with protective felt interior. Shipping: Please see photos; message with any questions. Ships EXPEDITED PRIORITY MAIL, packed with care. [Attributes: First Edition]
Bookseller: Bellowsome Books (hopemainebooks) [Hope, Maine, United States]
