“And what is death, if not a face at peace - its artistic perfection": First Edition of Vladimir Nabokov's Despair
London: Weidenfeld and Nicolson, 1966.
First British edition of this inventive and richly derisive story of Hermann, a man who undertakes the perfect crime–his own murder. Octavo, original cloth. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a touch of rubbing. A very nice example.
