Paris: Kickshaws, 1987. Limited Edition. Wraps. Fine.


One of 40 copies. In original wraps. Beckett wrote Mercier et Camier in French in 1946, but refused to publish it until 1970. It wasn't until 1974 that an edition in English was published. While translating the novel from French to English, Beckett made substantial deletions and changes. This small edition consists of the passages Beckett eliminated from Mercier and Camier when he translated it from the original French to into English. Slipcase with closure made in polycarbonate, lined in velour, and airbrushed with automotive paint. Created by Sonya Sheats. 20cm x 19.5 cm
