Why We Love This

Despair (1966) and King, Queen, Knave (1968) by Vladimir Nabokov. New York: Putnam and McGraw-Hill. Both first printings. Despair has chip to jacket spine base and small tears to edges, otherwise an excellent copy. King, Queen, Knave is a near perfect copy. Two works, dealing with the less-than-noble motives simmering under the surface of respectable bourgeois society, that helped establish Nabokov as the pre-eminent novelist of his time.
