Philadelphia, PA: Franklin Library (1981)

Limited Edition.

This limited edition is bound in brown leather with gold accents and a hubbed spine. The end papers are moire fabric. The book also features illustrations, archival paper, gilded edges, and a silk ribbon marker. Fine.

Awe and exhiliration--along with heartbreak and mordant wit--abound in Lolita, Nabokov's most famous and controversial novel, which tells the story of the aging Humbert Humbert's obsessive, devouring, and doomed passion for the nymphet Dolores Haze.

Lolita is also the story of a hypercivilized European colliding with the cheerful barbarism of postwar America. Most of all, it is a meditation on love--love as outrage and hallucination, madness and transformation.
