    We are pleased to present Catalogue 143: Literature, a selection from the inventory of Waiting for Godot Books with highlights such as Percy Shelley's Essays, Letters from Abroad, Translations, and Fragments, inscribed by Mary Shelley, and a corrected typescript of Truman Capote's The House of Flowers
