Bootleg Beckett

The Image: An Alternate English Version of L'Image

Notes: "A handful of copies of this translation of L'Image previously proposed in a critique* of the first published (but unacknowledged) English version, have been privately printed, for the translator's personal pleasure and in order that an optimally faithful text should be available..."

Printed with two alternating typefaces which gives the text a weird sense of movement. [16] pages, printed on four sheets, each folded in half and laid into printed wrappers. 5-5/8 by 6 inches.

NB: The publication information is based on the deposit copy record at the Bibliotheque nationale de France. * Referring to The Ill-Made Image in the Journal of Beckett Studies.

OCLC records two copies in France, two in the UK (which records it as a British publication) and one at UNC, Chapel Hill.

Edition + Condition: First printing of this unauthorized translation. Fine in wrappers and the original glassine.

Publication: [Paris]: [Kickshaws], [2003].
