FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL PLAY OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY. In addition to the trade edition, thirty-five special copies were also printed.

Beckett completed Godot in 1946. An abridged version was performed on French radio on 17 February 1952 and the play was published 17 October of the same year. It was given it's first complete staging on 4 January 1953 by Roger Blin at the tiny Théâtre de Babylone on the blvd. Raspail. It was a tremendous critical success and was reprised the next year.

A VERY GOOD COPY.
