AB100387, Joyce James; Beckett Samuel et al., Our Exagmination Round His Factification for Incamination of ‘Work in Progress’, London, Faber & Faber, First Edition Second Issue, Blue Cloth, Good, Good, pp. (vi), 194 + (2). This collection of appraisals of Finnegan’s Wake includes Beckett’s first appearance in print. An aptly baffling book to catalogue; issued by Faber & Faber in 1936 using sheets printed by Durand for the original Shakespeare and Company’s 1929 first edition. The book itself only has the 1929 date on the printer’s colophon at the rear. On its verso is the notice of there having been 96 numbered copies printed on Verge d’Arches; none of which would have been passed on to either Faber or New Directions. Name & contemporary date in neat hand on ffep. Tail edge & gutter of end papers & boards water-marked with a red contact stain at the same place on the dust jacket’s front panel; internally entirely unaffected.
