Description

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).

Description

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.

Bibliography

Federman & Fletcher 257.
