In very good dust jacket with slight edgewear and one short closed tear to head of lower panel. *** A very attractive first UK edition of Nabokov’s sprawling novel about a love affair between a brother and sister. ‘A great work of art’ to Nabokov scholar Alfred Appel, a spurious mess to many others.
