From an Abandoned Work. London: Faber & Faber, 1958. First Edition. Pp, 22.  Decorated card covers, ownership name & date to endpapers, otherwise a near fine copy.  A fragment of an unfinished novel, written circa 1955, featuring the musings of a neurotic man. Beckett told his bibliographers that the fragment resulted from an attempt to return to fiction in English. Asked why it ends abruptly, he replied, 'there was just no more to be said.' (Raymond Federman and John Fletcher, Samuel Beckett: His Works & His Critics, An Essay in Bibliography)
