BECKETT, Samuel
THE NORTH
Enitharmon Press, London, 1972. Folio (11-3/4" x 15") in wraps, loosely housed as issued in a paper folder, cloth chemise, and slipcase. Text printed by Will and Sebastian Carter on paper made by J. Barcham Green. Of a total of 137 numbered copies illustrated with 3 original etchings by Avigdor Arikha, each signed in pencil by the artist, this is copy #121 and is one of only 12 "Ad personam" copies. Rather than being signed on the colophon page as with the regular copies, this is INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on the front of the folder: "for Herbert Myron/from his friend/Sam. Beckett/Paris May/1973." The text of THE NORTH comprises the penultimate paragraph of THE LOST ONES with minor variants from the full edition in English. Herbert Myron, a professor of French at Boston University, was a friend who had a lengthy correspondence with Beckett. Myron introduced Beckett to Lawrence Harvey who wrote SAMUEL BECKETT: POET AND CRITIC, focusing on Beckett's least known writings. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
Bookseller: Charles Agvent, est. 1987, ABAA, ILAB [Fleetwood, PA, U.S.A.]
