Catalogue Note

Pas Moi is inscribed by the playwright to his close friend, the highly accomplished and respected Beckett scholar Ruby Cohn (1922--2011), who attended the first public performance of En Attendant Godot (Waiting for Godot) in Paris in 1953 whilst a student at the Sorbonne. Beckett subsequently became the chief professional interest for the rest of her life. This copy was subsequently a gift by her to her friend Daniel Labeille.
