Pale Fire
New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1962. First edition of this "witty, ironic and complex tour de force" (Hart, 521). Octavo, original black cloth, top edge stained red. Fine in a near fine dust jacket that shows light wear. An attractive example. "This centaur work, half-poem, half-prose . . . is a creation of perfect beauty, symmetry, strangeness, originality and moral truth. Pretending to be a curio, it cannot disguise the fact that it is one of the great works of art of this century" (Mary McCarthy). "This brilliant parody of literary scholarship is also an experimental synthesis of Nabokov's talents for both poetry and prose. It extends and completes his mastery of unorthodox structure" (Encyclopedia of Literature, 851).
