Remembrance of Things Past (A La Recherche Du Temps Perdu): The Captive;
Proust, Marcel (Translated by C. K. Scott Moncrieff).

Published by Chatto & Windus, Alfred A. Knopf, London (1929)

Item Description: Chatto & Windus, Alfred A. Knopf, London, 1929. First edition. Translated by C.K. Scott Moncrieff. An excellent set, rare in this condition. Marcel Proust was best known for his 3200 page masterpiece, A La Recherche du Temps Perdu. First translated into English by C.K. Scott Moncrieff as 'Remembrance of Things Past', it was later revised in translation to 'In Search of Lost Time'. Semi-autobiographical, and written in a stream-of-consciousness style, W. Somerset Maugham called it 'the greatest fiction to date'. The first volume was published in 1913. Gradually withdrawing from society, Proust worked during the nights and slept during the day until his death in 1922 at the age of 51. Graham Greene named Proust, "the greatest novelist of the 20th century.".
