VN Autograph Letter
For those of you who wonder what one hand-written letter by Nabokov costs
nowadays, a dealer has just notified me that he wants $1,650. The letter
is undated but must be from January 1932 from N's Nestor Strasse address
in Berlin. It is a note to Gleb Struve thanking him for a poem and a
picture and mentioning readings that Nabokov had recently given in
Belgium. He also mentions (negatively) the work of the French translator
