BECKETT, Samuel. Endgame. A Play in One Act, followed by Act Without Words, a Mime for One Player. London: Faber and Faber, 1958.

8vo. Publisher's brick cloth, spine lettered in blue; in the original dust-wrapper (not price-clipped); pp. 60; dust-wrapper with slight rubbing to extremities and light marks to lower board; a little spotting to top and outer edges, with a mark to top edge; light spotting in some places in text; a very good copy.
First UK edition. Translated from the French by the author. Endgame, one of Beckett's absurdist writing ploys, sees characters Hamm and Clov discuss themes of existentialism in a dark, post-apocalyptic setting, emanating a dark anticipation for what is yet to come. This is followed by Act Without Words - a Mime.
