An announcement from the Beckett International Foundation
Dear Friends and Colleagues
As many of you will have heard, the University of Reading has acquired Samuel Beckett’s six Murphy notebooks at Sotheby’s last week. We are, needless to say, absolutely thrilled that the notebooks are coming to the Beckett Collection in Reading, and that they will finally be available for consultation by scholars. They have been in a private collection since 1968, and were before that in the possession of Brian Coffey.
Please note that it will take us some time (months not weeks) to accession the notebooks. Needless to say, however, we will endeavour to make them available as soon as possible. I will send out an announcement when the time comes.
In the meantime, here are a few sites with further information on the acquisition:
With best wishes
