Look at the Harlequins! by Vladimir Nabokov


Rare UK 1st!   Hardcover with Dust Jacket in good condition with flaws: 

Dust jacket is fully in tact, but has some visible staining along top edge;  visible on rear of DJ and top of panels [see photos]  -  now housed in a new HQ brodart jacket protector.  

Book itself is very good.  Boards are sharp and clean, one crushed corner.  Reads good as new. 

A dying man cautiously unravels the mysteries of memory and creation. Vadim is a Russian emigre who, like Nabokov, is a novelist, poet and critic. There are threads linking the fictional hero with his creator as he reconstructs the images of his past from young love to his serious illness.
