About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for ULYSSES by Joyce James.

Description:

The very rarely encountered true First American Edition (unauthorized), preceding the authorized edition by some five years and the first printing in England by seven years. Small 4to, in a handsome contemporary binding of three-quarter navy blue morocco over blue cloth covered boards, the spine featuring three elegant compartments with red morocco inlaid fleur-de-lis within a densely gilt-stippled field, two further compartments gilt lettered, each compartment gilt ruled and divided by gilt-stippled raised bands, additional gilt lettering at the tale, endpapers marbled, t.e.g, (6), 735 pp. A very nice copy in contemporary binding, the paper still quite fresh, clean and bright, the binding is handsome in spite of some light age wear along the edges and tips. SCARCE FIRST AMERICAN EDITION (UNAUTHORIZED). The most important novel of the twentieth century . ULYSSES can be viewed as the pinnacle of the Modernist movement, and its impact on all subsequent western literature is unmistakable. Such writers as Virginia Woolf, John Dos Passos, William Faulkner, Samuel Beckett, Malcolm Lowry, and Anthony Burgess have all paid tribute, consciously or unconsciously, to Joyce's influence. Burgess as well pronounced it the greatest single work in the English literature of this century, and he is not alone in that opinion. According to James Spoerri, "This fortunate combination of printer and publisher resulted in the appearance of ULYSSES as a book whose physical aspect is particularly suited to its content. It is (an). inviting volume, the blue and white of its covers subtly evocative of the Greece whose epic it so closely parallels" (quoted in the catalogue for the Garden Sale, Sotheby's 1989). "This pirated edition of ULYSSES is discussed at some length by R.F. Roberts in his pioneer article, "Bibliographical Notes on James Joyce’s ‘Ulysses’," in the "Colophon", New York, NS. 1.4 (Spring, 1936) 565-579. Among the many points in which this piracy differs from the legitimate (Shakespeare and Co.) printing are the misprint "Jonthan" for Jonathan" (p.[2]), the reversal of the position of the fly title and divisional numeral I, the absence of title and author on the spine, and a very large number of typographical errors. On p. 323 of this piracy, for example, l.29 of the legitimate edition is inverted and inserted as the third line from the bottom. Roberts also states that "The pagination is the same but the type font is perceptibly smaller; the paper is a considerably heavier stock and the book is consequently about one-eighth of an inch thicker." This edition is not a copy of the photographic reproduction mentioned by Joyce in his letter to Bennett A Cerf, April 2, 1932, printed in the 1934 Random House edition of ULYSSES (A 21), but a piracy from new plates. The photographic reproduction mentioned by Joyce almost certainly never existed. Copies of this pirated edition reached Paris and were imported into the United States as genuine copies. One of these, sent by Joyce to Bennett A. Cerf of Random House, was used in setting up the first authorized American edition of ULYSSES. This pirated edition.was printed by Adolph and Rudolph Loewinger.for Samuel Roth, publisher of "Two World and Two Worlds Monthly, and his brother Max Roth. It was unauthorized by Joyce and sold illegally in the United States. Many copies of this piracy were seized by the Society for the Suppression of Vice on October 5, 1929." Slocum and Cahoon 28-29.
