Proust, Marcel

In Search of Lost Time

Published: London, Allen Lane (The Penguin Press)

Date: 2002

6 volumes, set. Firsts thus. Original black cloth, gilt. The slipcase has just a little rubbing to extremities. Fine in fine dust-wrappers.

General Editor: Christopher Prendergast. Each volume has a separate translator (Lydia Davis, James Grieve, Mark Treharne, John Sturrock, Carol Clark and Peter Collier, & Ian Patterson). The first new translation into English since Scott Moncreiff’s original version sounds as if it might have been produced by a committee but is actually a triumph.
