A scarce copy of Beckett's landmark work

First edition, trade issue, scarce review copy. It was preceded only by a tiny limited issue of 35 large paper copies issued earlier the same year.

Godot was written and published in French, and was first performed in full at the Théâtre de Babylone in Paris on 5 January 1953. Beckett's English translation of the play later premiered at the Arts Theatre, London, on 3 August 1955, and was published the same year.
