Samuel Beckett
Murphy Samuel Beckett 1938 First Edition Extremely Rare
1938. Published by George Routledge, London. No dust jacket. Green cloth boards have marks. Top board leans forward a bit (3rd photo) and there is a very slight bend (4th photo). Titles in gilt on the spine. This may be the first issue binding - but I m not totally sure. If it is then it was one of only 718 copies. Please check the photos. There is a scribble on the bottom block - see 3rd photo. The book is ex-library. It has 2 stickers on the inside front cover. One is fully stuck down and gives the library borrowing rules. The second is stuck over this but is only stuck at the side so can be pulled back to reveal the first one. Also there is the remains of a sticker on the first free endpaper. All this can be seen in the 5th photo. The title page has a "Withdrawn from the library" stamp. See 6th photo. And a number stamped on the copyright page. See 7th photo. Also a small stamped date at the bottom of the inside back cover (final photo). There are some foxing marks - the worst is shown in photo 8. There are a few minor stretch marks - for example see photo 9. And a small red ink dot on page 60 - see 10th photo. Generally, however, pages are clean and bright. The book has 282 pages with some catalogue pages at the back It is soundly bound with no missing, detached or loose pages. Please click on the link to see the other books I have for sale.
