One of 1100 numbered copies - inscribed by the author. With the author's signed presentation inscription to the half title page, 'for John and Vera affectionately Sam. Paris, Nov, 1955'. The recipients were Beckett's cousin and his wife. Nouvelles et textes pour rien represented a key transitional stage in Beckett's prose writings. It marks the end of the earlier, more comedic work, heralding the harsher more obviously troubling later pieces such as 'Comment C'Est' and the 'Foirades'. Presentation copies of this intimacy are uncommon.

First edition, first impression, one of 1100 numbered copies, from a total edition of 1130, inscribed by the author; 8vo; publisher's white wrappers printed in black and blue, wrappers rather used and marked, with some wear to the backstrip.
