Pnin. Vladimir NABOKOV.


1957: Heinemann,

First edition. 8vo. 191pp. Black boards with white lettering to spine. Pictorial dustwrapper with wrapper blurb by Rebecca West tipped onto rear flap (as issued). A fine copy with clean boards. No marks to textblock edges. The fine dustwrapper is complete with no wear to spine tips. Original price of 13s6dnet on front flap. None of the usual fading to brown wrapper spine. A superior copy.

Contrary to popular opinion it was not Lolita that made Nabokov a well known writer in the US but the success of Pnin.
