“À la recherche du temps perdu, commonly referred to simply as La Recherche, is a novel by Marcel Proust, written from 1906 to 1922 and published from 1913 to 1927 in seven volumes, the last three of which were published after the author's death. Rather than the narration of a specific sequence of events, this work is not interested in the narrator's memories but in a reflection on literature, memories and time.” (Wikipedia)

Good condition, bindings have very minor damage: very lightly rubbed percaline on the headcap and joints. Inside in very good condition, fresh and clean. No rhodoids. Solid case, with signs of handling.
