NABAKOV, VLADIMIR
The Waltz Invention / A Play in Three Acts.
New York, Phaedra 1966, hb. Contents unmarked, a good plus copy. 8vo, pp. 111. 1st edition in this format.
¶ "The Waltz Invention" is a tragicomedy in three acts originally written in Russian as Izobretenie Val'sa in 1938. It was first published in Russkie Zapiski in Paris in the same year. Nobokov translated it at that time into English. The second English translation was made by Dmitri Nabakov in 1964 with the help of his father who also made some alterations; it was published by Phaedra in 1966. The play takes place in an unnamed country in about 1935. Nabokov makes the point in the 1965 written foreword that while the work sounds a "prophetic forenote" - the invention is a weapon of mass destruction - he has no political message and does not support the peaceniks of his time. Rear board shows some light spotting and is a bit bowed. The original dust jacket is present and is unclipped. Small stain, or discoloration, to inside bottom edge of rear hinge and inside of spine. A bit of soiling, or darkening, to front of dust jacket, which is otherwise in remarkably good condition.
