Quatre Poèmes - Four Songs.

Lam, Bun-Ching (illus.)

Poestenkill, NY: Edition Kaldewey, 1986. Triangular small quarto. (28)pp. Of an edition of 50 copies, this is one of thirty regular. Signed by Bun-Ching Lam, whose six etchings render into visual art her original set of musical compositions that accompanied Beckett's poems. The etchings are in unusual shapes, and sometimes extend over the edge of the page; the text, which was Beckett's last book during his lifetime, appears in similarly unbounded and ungrounded settings. The project was the beginning of Lam and Kaldewey's personal relationship.

The colophon states an edition of 70 total copies, but only thirty of the planned fifty regular copies were realized. Bound in gray paper over boards. A fine copy, housed in dropback box, somewhat rubbed. Item #31593

(von Lucius, pp. 168-171).

Price: $2,750.00
