Grasset &Nrf, Paris 1913-1927, 12.5x19cm for the first volume & 13x19.5cm for the second & 14.5x19.5cm for the rest, 13 volumes in paper covers, in 7 chemises and slipcases of blue-green cloth.

The first edition on ordinary paper with all the characteristics of the first printing for the first volume (fault to Grasset, upper cover with 1913 date, no table of contents); first edition, with no edition statement, on ordinary paper for volume two, first editions, numbered on pur fil paper, the only large paper copies along with the re-imposed copies for the subsequent volumes. Very discreet repairs to spine of first two volumes, the odd infrequent bit of foxing. This complete collection of In Search of Lost Time includes the following titles: Du côté de chez Swann [Swann's Way], A l'ombre des jeunes filles en fleurs [In the Shadow of Young Girls in Flower], Le Côté de Guermantes [The Guermantes Way] (2 volumes), Sodome et Gomorrhe [Sodom and Gomorrah] (3 volumes), La Prisonnière [The Prisoner] (2 volumes), Albertine disparue [The Fugitive] (2 volumes) and Le Temps retrouvé [Time Regained] (2 volumes).
A handsome set, as published. -
