  1. First trade edition, first printing (only preceded by the private edition of just 35 numbered copies). Small 8vo. Original wrappers printed in blue and black. In the very early, if not original glassine. Contents somewhat browned as always with the papier courant issue, very light vertical crease to backstip but an absolutely stunning copy and rare thus. Contained in a custom-made, blue cloth drop-down box.

    £4,500
  2. First edition, first impression; one of 100 copies on hand-made paper signed by Beckett, t.e.g., unopened; original full tan morocco, intriguing doodle in ink to the title page of what I feel must be Pim and Pim [sic] the creatures of this remarkable book, a beautiful copy in the very slightly marked slipcase.

    £1,500
  3. First edition in English, first impression. 8vo. Publisher's red cloth, titles to spine gilt. With the photographic dust jacket. An excellent copy in the little sunned dust jacket, with a small internal stain at the foot of the spine panel. Nice.

    £225
  4. First UK edition; 8vo; publisher's printed note tipped in; endpapers a little foxed; publisher's yellow cloth, spine lettered in red, printed dust-jacket with photographic halftone illustration, a very good copy; [8], 9-94pp.

    £750
  5. First trade edition, first printing following the limited edition original, inscribed presentation copy signed by the author, 8vo. Publisher's white paper wrappers printed in black and blue. Wrappers somewhat marked, contents a little browned as always. An excellent copy.
