London: Methuen & Co, 1960. 1st trade edition, preceded by the Samuel French acting edition. A theatrical dynamo, The Caretaker is to post-modern plays, what Washington D. C. is to lying. Pinter's own copy (the author's salient precious), of his first major success, (maybe used as a prompt copy) with his extensive deletions, alongside of some corrections, additions, notations, and changes, all in his own handwriting. Original wrappers (there was also a simultaneous hardbound issue). Very good, minor wear (game used), the best copy in the world. First Edition. Very good.
