At the Top of Their Game
(Piscataway), Winchester Press/Nick Lyons Books, (1983). A collection of articles written by Boyle for Sports Illustrated, including "An Absence of Wood Nymphs," about his going butterfly hunting with Nabokov. This copy is signed by Boyle: "Robert H. Boyle/ who's coming unglued like this book/ VN p. 123/ the full text." The book is indeed coming unglued, but laid into it is a 1998 signed fax from Brian Boyd to Boyle: Boyd was the author of Vladimir Nabokov: The Russian Years, Vladimir Nabokov: The American Years; and Nabokov's Butterflies, among several other Nabokov titles. The full-page fax is faded and difficult to make out in places; the middle third of the Boyle book is detached. [#035303] SOLD
