Dear Carolyn,

That seems entirely plausible: certainly doesn't contradict my memories, although it also doesn't strike me with a flash of confident confirmation, but then what would? Thank you for your sleuthing,

Brian

Subject: Re: [NABOKV-L] Nabokov's Shakespeare edition?

Dear Brian Boyd

Is this it? It is a three-volume Oxford Miniature Edition (Tragedies, Comedies, Histories and Poems). It was published by London: Humphrey Milford, Oxford University Press, 1915, with texts prepared by William James Craig.

... but I also saw a three or  four-volume edition whose size was, I think, sextodecimo  (twice the size of Kinbote's 32mo  Timon Afinsken) in vermilion soft leather in  an exhibition at the Montreux Palace in 1999. Does anybody  know any details of this edition (which first Nabokov and  then Véra seems to have kept in their rooms rather than in  the rest of their disorganized library in Montreux) or its present whereabouts?
