Item #426 Watt. Samuel Beckett.


New York: Grove Press, 1959. Wrappers. Uncorrected, publisher’s working proofs for the 1st U. S. edition of Beckett’s 2nd novel. Unbound, uncut sheets, folded and sewn, an in–house product, not some advance copy. Old and intriguing pencil and ink corrections that look like publisher’s work towards a future edition. Small chips and tears to the first and last leaves else very good, and clearly rare. Very good. Item #426

Watt is a willing servant, but his unexplored capacity bumps up against unexplained need.

Price: $3,500.00
