Lolita
Paris: The Olympia Press,, 1955. 2 volumes, octavo. Original green and white wrappers printed in black. Edges slightly rubbed, spines a little toned, a few very minor spots to edges; an excellent set. First edition, first printing, first issue of one of the most notorious books of the 20th century, published three years before the American edition and four before the London edition. Lolita was originally published with a price of 900 francs printed on the rear covers, but a sudden currency fluctuation meant that the books had to be re-priced to 1200 francs. Copies of the first issue appear either without a price change, as in this copy, or with the bookseller's hand-written correction. The second issue appeared with the publisher's over-price sticker to the back covers.
