About This Item

Paris: Les Éditions de Minuit, 1952. A very good plus copy, the pages skillfully opened without damage to the margins, the spine toned and lightly cockled, and with narrow shadow along top edge of front wrapper, modest paper somewhat toned as usual. 8vo. 162, [4] pages. Original printed wrappers, with author's photograph and blurbs on rear wrapper. FIRST TRADE EDITION (after the 35 signed copies on large-paper) of the original French edition of 'Waiting for Godot'. One of 2,500 copies. Beckett's masterpiece, and one of the defining works of the 20th century. Overall, a very well-preserved copy: these trade editions from Les Éditions de Minuit are delicate in construction and notoriously fragile. Federman & Fletcher 259.
