    Vladimir Nabokov. Lolita. Paris: The Olympia Press, [1955]. First edition. Two twelvemo volumes. 188, [1, blank], [1, colophon], [2, blank]; 223, [1, colophon] pages. Publisher's perfect binding in the original printed green wrappers, presumed first issue, lacking the later price stickers on the rear of the volumes (no residue indicating stickers either). Bindings worn and soiled; tears to joints; joints starting (rear joint of Volume II particularly rough); rear wrapper of Volume II nearly detached; large dampstain to nearly the entire text of Volume I and its rear wrapper. Volume I skewed. Good.
