LAUGHTER IN THE DARK. A Novel
New York: Bobbs-Merrill, 1938. First Edition. Hardcover. Stated first edition, first state of the binding. It is stated on the copyright page that this novel was previously published in Britain under the title CAMERA OBSCURA. This is therefore the first American edition with this title of book published by John Long in 1935. 8vo light green cloth. The author's name is spelled "Nabokoff". A stunning copy in an expertly restored, price-clipped dj. The book itself is tight and nearly fine, showing almost no wear. The jacket has been expertly restored, a fact that is evident from examining the verso, but both jacket panels and the spine are all very true and bright in color so that externally it almost appears at first to be new. The price has been clipped from the lower inner front flap.
