Author / Artist:

Beckett, Samuel


Paris: Hours Press. 1930


First edition, first printing. One of 300 copies. Original stapled red card covers, the titles in black to the upper cover, with the original white wraparound band printed in black, as issued. Housed in an elegant purpose made cloth chemise and slipcase, the title in gilt to a morocco label on the spine. A very good copy indeed, the covers showing only light rubbing and darkening at the extremities. The contents are entirely complete and without inscriptions or stamps. There is some spotting to the page margins and the staples rusting. An excellent example without repair or restoration.




The author's first separately published work. One of the 200 unsigned copies (of a total edition of 300), this hand numbered 235 in blue ink to the colophon page.
