With an 18 page essay by Glebe Struve on "The Double Life of Russian Literature" on émigré literature including over a page on Nabokov. Struve was an early admirer of Nabokov/Sirin, having done critical work on him in French beginning in the twenties. He, also, was the first to translate VN into English, with "The Return of Chorb" in 1932 in This Quarter. A year after this journal was published this rather obscure Russian émigré would publish Lolita in Paris, and become one of the most famous writers in the world. This copy is age-toned, with pieces of the spine loose, but intact, and otherwise about fine in wraps.
