First edition of this annotated compendium of the Nabokov-Wilson letters. Octaovo, original cloth. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. Jacket design by Paul Bacon.

In 1965 a memorable literary sensation was crafted by Edmund Wilson's severely critical review of Vladimir Nabokov's annotated translation of Pushkin's Eugene Onegin and by Nabokov's reply. The 264 letters in this volume represent the extant correspondence with a superb introductory essay and running commentary by Simon Karlinsky, Professor of Slavic Languages and Literature at the University of California at Berkeley.
