About this Item

This copy contains dozens of lightly-pencilled proof-reading corrections, in what appears to be Stuart Gilbert's handwriting. 8th printing, May 1926. Original wrappers, cracking to spine paper, very good. For this last edition to be published by Sylvia Beach, the type was entirely reset. Not all errors were caught, however. The next authorized edition to be printed was the two-volume Odyssey Press edition published in December 1932. As far as we can tell, all the corrections made in our copy were incorporated into that edition, which was edited or proof-read by Stuart Gilbert at Joyce's request. This may well have been one of Gilbert's working copies used in preparation of that text. Alistair McCleery's article, "The Reputation of the 1932 Odyssey Press Edition of Ulysses," in PBSA 100:1 (2006), pp. 89-103, discusses the extent of Gilbert's role in preparing the edition. This copy can be seen to mark a stage in the perfecting of the text of Ulysses. Bookseller Inventory # 28795
