En attendant Godot: Piece en deux Actes. Paris: Editions de Minuit, 1952. First trade edition, first printing (preceded by the large paper edition of 35 copies). Publisher’s white printed card covers. A fine copy, the wrappers without darkening or tears, light vertical creasing of the spine. The contents are clean and without inscriptions or stamps. A lovely example. Loosely inserted is a short note in the author's hand and on his personal stationary, dated Paris 27.10.83, in original envelope addressed in Beckett's hand. "I have not received your books. Editions de Minuit may have forgotten to inform me. I'll check with them when they reopen November 2 and write you again. Sincerely Samuel Beckett". Housed in collectors clamshell box.
