Item Description: Shakespeare and Company, Paris, 1922. Specially bound in full leather in 2 volumes. This is number 389 of a the special 750 copies printed on handmade, laid paper. Signed and dated in ink by James Joyce: "James Joyce 9. ix. 1924" on the front endpaper following the front blue wrapper. Volume I contains 370 pages. Volume II begins on page 371 and and ends on p. 732 with the "Trieste-Zurich-Paris, 1914-1921" dateline. The next page is printed in capital letters: "Printed for Sylvia Beach by Maurice Darantiere at Dijon, France." The rear wrapper is not present at the end of volume two. Both volumes have been specially bound in full leather with 4 gilt rectangular rules and a delicate inner rectangle of hand-tooled chain patterns culminating in larger floral designs at the inside corners of the front and rear boards. Both front boards bear the name of "JOAN" in vertical gilt capital letters. The spine of volume I is missing 6" of the 9.5" of the spine length, but the top portion with "I" is present. The front blue wrapper printed in White with "Ulysses" by James Joyce is clean and crisp, as is the text throughout volumes one and two. The top edges are gilded. And there are predominantly orange and grey marbled endpapers. There is hand-tooled dentelle gilding along the front and rear inside edges of the boards as well. Both volumes have some pencil scrawlings on the front endpapers, but nothing affecting the text. Despite the two-volume format and the missing rear wrapper, modern first edition authority Allen Ahearn opined that this signed and dated copy in Joyce's hand of one of the 750 specially printed first editions is perhaps as scarce as one of the 100 signed copies, given that none of the 750 copies was issued with Joyce's signature. This copy was signed and dated two years after publication in 1924. This edition is limited to 1000 copies: 100 copies (signed) on Dutch handmade paper numbered from 1 to 100; 150 copies on vergé d'Arches numbered from 101 to 250; 750 copies on handmade paper numbered from 251 to 1000. This is copy No. 389. "The publisher asks the reader’s indulgence for typographical errors unavoidable in the exceptional circumstances. S.B." In a review in The Dial, T.S. Eliot said of Ulysses: "I hold this book to be the most important expression which the present age has found; it is a book to which we are all indebted, and from which none of us can escape." He went on to claim that Joyce was not at fault if people after him did not understand it: "The next generation is responsible for its own soul; a man of genius is responsible to his peers, not to a studio full of uneducated and undisciplined coxcombs." The book has its critics; Virginia Woolf stated that "Ulysses was a memorable catastrophe—immense in daring, terrific in disaster." Ulysses has been called "the most prominent landmark in modernist literature", a work where life's complexities are depicted with "unprecedented, and unequalled, linguistic and stylistic virtuosity." That style has been stated to be the finest example of the use of stream-of-consciousness in modern fiction, with the author going deeper and farther than any other novelist in handling interior monologue. This technique has been praised for its faithful representation of the flow of thought, feeling, mental reflection, and shifts of mood. (Wikipedia) First Edition, One of 750 numbered copies.

Item Description: Paris: Shakespeare and Co, 1922, 1922. The first printing of Ulysses consisted of 1000 copies in three limitations: the first 100 were printed on Dutch handmade paper, numbered, and signed by Joyce, price 350 francs; 150 large paper copies numbered 101- 250, printed on Vergé d'Arches, unsigned, at 250 francs; and the final 750 were numbered 251-1000 and printed on a lesser grade of handmade paper, at 150 francs Arguably the most significant and celebrated English language novel of the 20th Century, the publishing trials and tribulations of Ulysses are legend. Stymied by obscenity charges that prevented its serial publication in The Egoist, Joyce's masterpiece was published instead by Sylvia Beach in the winter of 1922 under her imprint at the Shakespeare and Company bookshop in Paris. In 1922, a young Harvard music student, Virgil Thomson, was on leave from school to study with the great Nadia Boulanger in Paris; a month before his return to America in August, Thomson purchased this copy on July 1, 1922, according to Sylvia Beach's notebook (v. Horowitz catalogue). A few years later, Thomson returned to Paris, where he became acquainted with the circle of experimental artists, writers, and musicians who gathered at Sylvia Beach's famous bookshop, and it was there that he came to know James Joyce. "After the success of 'Four Saints in Three Acts,' Joyce asked Thomson to compose a score for a ballet to be presented at the Paris Opera with choreography by Leonide Massine based on the children's games chapter of FINNEGAN'S WAKE. Thomson demurred, not wanting to wound his good friend Gertrude, who thought Joyce a rival" (Anthony Tommasini, Virgil Thomson: Composer on the Aisle, p. 139). A remarkable association copy of this modernist classic First edition, No. 234 of 150 numbered copies on vergé d'Arches (total edition, 1000 copies). Tall 8vo (26.2 x 20.1 cm.). xii, 740 pp. Original blue wrappers printed in white. Wrappers slightly rubbed at edges, skillfully rebacked, preserving most of original spine. Very good, in quarter morocco slipcase with chemise, and the original Shakespeare & Co. prospectus laid in. Composer VIRGIL THOMSON's copy, signed in light pencil by him on the flyleaf: "Virgil Thomson Paris 1922". Slocum A17; Connolly Modern Movement, 42; v. Horowitz, p. 121.

Item Description: Shakespeare & Company, Paris, 1922. First edition. One of 750 numbered copies on handmade paper from a total edition of 1000 copies. Thick quarto, original blue and white wrappers. A near fine copy, internally fresh and largely unopened, the wrappers not significantly soiled or faded, and completely unrestored. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. This is copy #992, and has laid in the front panel of the original prospectus with the tipped-on reproduction of the 1918 photo of Joyce by C. Ruf. The front panel of the prospectus has been amended, as often, to indicate the book "is now ready," and the original buyer must have jumped at the opportunity, as the order panel of the prospectus has been neatly cut away. Sisley Huddleston's 5 March 1922 review from The Observer is also laid in (though both items are in prophylactic sleeves that have prevented any offsetting). Also laid into the slipcase is some correspondence relating to the sale of this copy in 1972 by Duschnes in New York City. A very sharp copy with exceptional provenance. Ulysses was published in Paris by Shakespeare & Company, 1922. It was a struggle for the author to find a publisher, a comic irony considering that Ulysses is "[u]niversally hailed as the most influential work of modern times" (Grolier Joyce 69). Ulysses was an immediate success. The first printing sold out, and "within a year Joyce had become a well-known literary figure. Ulysses was explosive in its impact on the literary world of 1922" (de Grazia, 27). Even so, the book faced difficulties in global reception. It was banned in the U.K. and was prosecuted for the obscenity in the Nausicaa episode (Ellmann, 1982). Joyce's inspiration for the novel began as a young boy reading Charles Lamb's Adventures of Ulysses and writing an essay entitled "My Favourite Hero" after being impressed by the wholeness of the character (Goreman, 1939). The idea for the novel grew from a story in Dubliners in 1906, which Joyce expanded into a short book in 1907, before reconceptualizing it as the heady novel in 1914 (Ellmann, 1982). The book can initially seem unsctructured and chaotic, and Joyce admitted that he "put in so many enigmas and puzzles that it will keep the professors busy for centuries arguing over what I meant" (The Observer, 2000). The French translator Stuart Gilbert published a defense of Ulysses shortly after its publication in which he supported the novel's use of obscenity and explained its internal structure and links to the Odyssey against accusations of ambiguity. Every episode, Gilbert explained, is connected to the Odyssey by theme, technique, and correspondence between characters. Another instance of Ulysses' literary contribution is his use of stream-of-consciousness, a technique employing carefully structured prose, both humorous and charactering, and involving puns and parodies. Joyce was a precursor to the use of stream of consciousness in the later decades. Similar narrative techniques were used by his contemporaries Virginia Wolfe, William Faulkner, and Italo Svevo. Their style can be better characterized as an "interior monologue, rather than stream of consciousness, is the appropriate term for the style in which [subjective experience] is recorded, both in The Waves and in Woolf's writing generally" (Stevenson, 1992).

(8), 736 pp. (including 4 pages of "Ulysses Additional Corrections" at end). Contemp. blue cloth bound by Maltby of Oxford, giltstamped leather label to spine, with the original white wrappers printed in blue bound within. First edition, fourth printing. One of only two known signed and inscribed copies of this printing of "Ulysses" (the other being to Alys Eyre Macklin), with Joyce's autograph inscription in black ink on the preliminary blank: "To / Edward Irvine Halliday / James Joyce / Paris / 31. iii. [1]924". The painter Edward Halliday (1902-84) was a student at the Royal College of Art and attending life classes on a travel scholarship at the Académie Colarossi in Paris when Joyce inscribed this copy of "Ulysses" for him. His early murals "demonstrate the classical basis of his academic training but also have a strangely dream-like atmosphere and complex narrative that is personal to Halliday" (Ann Compton, ODNB). He later went on to become a successful portrait-painter, with the Queen and Winston Churchill among his subjects, as well as having a career in broadcasting and working on "black" wartime propaganda with Sefton Delmer. - Insignificant wear to boards, wrappers slightly dust-marked. Paper lightly browned overall and brittle as usual; a very few marginal tears and chips; still a fine example of this fragile book. The rich blue colour of the wrappers, liable to discoloration, is well preserved within the contemporary cloth boards. Widely recognized as the key book of 20th-century English literature, "Ulysses" is not only the author's most famous work, but counts among the principal works in the modernist canon.

Item Description: London John Lane the Bodley Head (1936), 1936. Octavo. xiii, (766)pp. First edition printed in England. From an edition of 1,000, this is one of 100 copies signed by Joyce and specially bound in full calf vellum with gilt bow design on the front cover by Eric Gill. The text for this edition follows the second Odyssey Press edition. The ban on Ulysses was overturned in the United States in 1933, but British printers were still initially hesitant about publishing the book, fearing legal consequences. However, Joyce sensed that attitudes in England would soon change, and this edition was printed in Britain three years after that landmark decision. Following the text is an appendix with information about the trial and Judge John M. Woolsey's decision to lift the ban. Includes a bibliography by Peter Pertzoff, which had been sent to Joyce and was then printed without the bibliographer's knowledge. Pages uncut. Extremely fine and fresh, lacking the fragile publisher's slipcase, housed in a custom folding cloth folding case with vellum spine. (Slocum & Cahoon A23). Bookseller Inventory # 23222

Item Description: Shakespreare and Co., Paris, 1925. 7th printing. Inscribed by the author and dated Paris, 1926 to the well known artist Ivan Opffer who is remembered for his portraits of writers and other notable figures including James Joyce and it is also inscribed by Ivan Opffer dated Jan. 1927. Joyce's Ulysses went through several printing. The first printing was of 1000 numbered copies, The second printing by the Egoist Press of London printed 2000 copies of which 500 copies were burned by the New York Post Office Authorities. The third printing, of which there were 500 copies printed, 499 of those copies were seized by customs authorities. When Ulysses was first published, there was much controversy over its contents. It was banned in the U.K. and the United States because of the belief it contained too much obscenity ( for the period). Today, it is considered one of the most important works of Modern literature. The present copy is bound in a striking custom brown Niger goatskin binding decorated with an art deco flair of onlays in maroon, lighter brown and black with a portrait of James Joyce from a portrait by Ivan Opffer in blind on cream goatskin framed in turquoise, with gilt signature. Just a bit of toning to page edges otherwise a superb copy with a worthwhile provenance. Size: Octavo. Bookseller Inventory # 017896

Item Description: The Limited Editions Club, New York, 1935. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. FIRST ILLUSTRATED EDITION OF ULYSSES, ONE OF ONLY 250 COPIES SIGNED BY BOTH JAMES JOYCE AND HENRI MATISSE; one of the most celebrated books of the twentieth century. The Limited Editions Club's Ulysses is the first illustrated Ulysses and "one of the very few American livres de peintres issued before World War II. According to George Macy, who undertook this only American publication of Matisse's illustrations, he asked the artist how many etchings the latter could provide for five thousand dollars. The artist chose to take six subjects from Homer's Odyssey. The preparatory drawings reproduced with the soft-ground etchings (Matisse's only use of this medium) record the evolution of the figures from vigorous sketches to closely knit, if less spontaneous, compositions" (The Artist and the Book, 197). Illustrated by Matisse with twenty-six plates, consisting of six soft-ground etchings, printed by hand, and twenty lithographic drawings, made as studies for the etchings, printed on thin colored papers. One of only 250 copies signed by both Joyce and Matisse (the remaining 1250 copies of the edition were signed only by Matisse). New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1935. Quarto, original brown buckram embossed in gold on front cover and spine from a design by LeRoy H. Appleton; top edge sprinkled brown, others uncut; original slipcase. Minor wear to slipcase. A FINE COPY. Bookseller Inventory # 374

Item Description: Paris: Shakespeare and Company, 1922, 1922. Soft cover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Original blue wrappers. Some wear and stains, signs of handling, but a very good, unrestored copy. Quarter morocco slipcase. FIRST EDITION. This is one of 750 numbered copies (from an edition of 1000) of the most sought-after book of 20th-century literature. Early in 1918, Ezra Pound secured Ulysses, then in progress, for the avant-garde American literary magazine The Little Review. Joyce was delighted to know that his book was being read and talked about, if only in modernist circles, and the serial publication spurred the author on as he tried to keep pace with the magazine’s schedule. Several numbers were seized as obscene and burned by the United States Post Office, and the obscenity trial began on February 14, 1921 began, resulting in the editors’ conviction. The serial publication of Ulysses ceased, and the American publishers who had considered publishing the book abandoned the project.Within weeks Joyce agreed to Sylvia Beach’s offer that the first edition appear in Paris under her Shakespeare and Company imprint in 1922. T.S. Eliot told Virginia Woolf after reading Ulysses, “How could anyone write again after achieving the immense prodigy of the last chapter?” Gertrude Stein commented, “Joyce is good. He is a good writer. People like him because he is incomprehensible and anybody can understand him.”. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-12944411125
