Waiting for Godot

New York: Grove Press, (1954).

Price: $2,500.00

Hardcover. First edition in English (translated by the author), preceding the British edition. Fine in near fine dustwrapper with modest tanning at the spine, two small tears on the front panel and nicks at the corners. A scarce and desirable issue of the Nobel Prize winner's most famous title, one of the great works of the world stage. A major innovation in modern drama, possibly the most important play of the 20th Century, and certainly the first theatrical success of the Theatre of the Absurd.
