The first four volumes of Proust's masterpiece in a single file, in the original French. Du côté de chez Swann, 1913; A L'Ombre des Jeunes Filles en Fleurs, 1919 ; Le Côté de Guermantes, 1920-1921; and Sodome et Gommorrhe, 1921-1922. According to Wikipedia: "Valentin Louis Georges Eugène Marcel Proust (10 July 1871 - 18 November 1922) was a French novelist, essayist, and critic, best known as the author of À la recherche du temps perdu (in English, In Search of Lost Time; earlier translated as Remembrance of Things Past), a monumental work of twentieth-century fiction published in seven parts from 1913 to 1927... Begun in 1909, À la recherche du temps perdu consists of seven volumes spanning some 3,200 pages and teeming with more than 2,000 literary characters. Graham Greene called Proust the "greatest novelist of the 20th century", and W. Somerset Maugham called the novel the "greatest fiction to date." Proust died before he was able to complete his revision of the drafts and proofs of the final volumes, the last three of which were published posthumously and edited by his brother, Robert."
