First edition of Nabokov’s criticism of the work of Russian literary master Nikolai Gogol. Octavo, original cloth. Near fine in a very good price-clipped dust jacket with some rubbing to the extremities.

One of the preeminent figures of the natural school of Russian literary realism, Nikolai Gogol produced a prolific body of work throughout the mid 19th century.
