UK first edition, first printing, SIGNED on a bookplate loosely inserted. Published by Faber and Faber. Beckett signatures are exceptionally scarce. A very good condition book with vibrant yellow boards.. The dust jacket has slight chipping to the folds, but is not price clipped.
Provenance of the signature on the bookplate: I have acquired a lot with a bunch of signed bookplates and other autographs from a passionate collector who must have been collecting autographs for decades. Waiting for Godot is the most significant play of the 20.
Century which premiered in the English language in London in 1955. It was originally written in French and premiered in Paris in 1953. The story of Vladimir and Estragon who endlessly wait for someone called'Godot' is iconic, and many interpretations existential, theological, Freudian, Jungian, political etc. Beckett received the Nobel Prize for literature in 1969.
