Product description

Proust, Marcel. In Search of Lost Time. Various translators, general editor Christopher Prendergast. Penguin/Allen Lane 2002. Hardback. Six- volume boxed set in slip-case.
Books condition near-Fine, DJs VG+, slip-case slightly chipped at edges.
New edition of Proust's masterpiece. "In Search of Lost Time has never been translated consistently and fully before.
