Look at the Harlequins! by Vladimir Nabokov
U.K. FIRST EDITION • FIRST PRINTING  WEIDENFIELD & NICOLSON
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.
