Attractive signed copy of the novel much regarded as Beckett’s best, which he claimed to have conceived on the day his publisher, Hamish Hamilton, rejected his novel Watt, “the day I became aware of my stupidity. Then I began to write the things I feel,” (Bair, Beckett, 367).
First trade edition, signed in ink on the title page by Samuel Beckett, 8vo., test in French, a few ends unopened, even age-toning throughout, publisher’s plain cream wrappers printed in black and blue, mild tanning to spine, edges with slight wear only, a few marks to wrappers, mostly to upper margin of rear one, otherwise a very good-plus copy.
Federman & Fletcher 257.
