Gingko Pale Fire: A Poem in Four Cantos by John Shade

Nice catch, Jansy. Your observation (that Kinbote describes the cards, not
VN) foregrounds a particularly thorny problem: how to discern the relative
reliability of Kinbote's narrative details. Is his New Wye (and Cedarn)
narrative reliable, while the Zemblan narrative is a fantasy? Is there a
test we can use to discern the reliability of CK's statements?

Ginko Pare Fire…Now readers can see the text for themselves,fresh from
Shade’s hands, before Kinbote commandeered it so shamelessly…as well as
facsimiles of the index cards that John Shade (like his maker, Nabokov) used
for composing his poem, printed exactly as Nabokov described them.

JM: Where did Nabokov describe the index cards which originated Shade’s
poem? Not in commandeering Kinbote’s Foreword?
