Item Description: NRF - Gallimard, Paris, 1930. Hardcover. Book Condition: g to vg. Nouvelle edition. 1/3000. Large octavo (8 1/4 x 5 1/2"). [4], 870, [2]pp. Original decorative dust-jacket over gilt-, green-, and black-stamped paper covered boards, with gold and black lettering to spine. Title page in red and black lettering. Joyce's novel is a pivotal work in the history of literature. The book is based on the structure of the "Odyssey," by Homer, whom Joyce deeply admired. In a series of episodes covering the course of a single day, 16 June 1904, the novel traces the movements of Leopold Bloom and Stephen Dedalus through the streets of Dublin. "Ulysses" has been the subject of controversy since copies of the first English edition were burned by the New York Post Office Authorities.*One of 3,000 unnumbered copies constituing NRF's third printing (October 1930).Some creasing, age-toning and sporadic soiling to dust-jacket. Pages evenly age-toned throughout. Text in French. DJ in overall good- to good, binding in good to very good, interior in good to good+ condition. * "Ulysses" was first serialized in the literary magazine "The Little Review" between 1918 and 1920, but it ran afoul of the censors. Joyce, then living in Paris, feared that he might not be able to publish the novel, but Sylvia Beach, of the famed Parisian bookshop 'Shakespeare & Company,' stepped forward, and on February 12, 1922 published the first edition of 1,000 copies, comprising 100 signed copies on Dutch handmade paper, 150 copies on vergé d'Arches paper, and 750 copies on handmade paper. All were bound in blue wrappers with white titles. The same year, The Egoist Press published the first UK edition from French sheets, with a second UK edition from French sheets following in 1923. Ulysses was not printed in the UK until 1936, when John Lane published a limited edition of 1,000 copies (100 of which were signed), followed shortly by a trade edition. "Ulysses" was prohibited from import into the US, and the first edition sold there was a piracy (based on the ninth Shakespeare & Company edition) produced by Adolphe and Rudolph Loewinger of New York in 1929. The first authorized American edition was published in 1934 by Random House after a landmark New York court case in which the novel was declared publishable under the right to freedom of speech.

Item Description: The Egoist Ltd, London, 1916. Book Condition: Near Fine. First UK edition. One of approximately 750 copies bound for the British market from the first edition American sheets. A Near Fine copy with a few short tears at the spine ends and the spine gilt oxidized (or just very dull), as common, otherwise a lovely copy. Housed in a basic clamshell case. The author's first novel, a semi-autobiographical work, that laid the groundwork for his masterpiece, "Ulysses." This novel is more accessible than some of his later work. It tracks the physical, emotional and psychological growth of a young Joyce as he searches for his voice and his path in life, culminating with the decision to pursue his art abroad: "I go to encounter for the millionth time the reality of experience and to forge in the smithy of my soul the uncreated conscience of my race." "It is a mosaic of jagged fragments that does altogether render with extreme completeness the growth of a rather secretive, imaginative boy in Dublin. The technique is startling, but on the whole it succeeds." -- H. G. Wells. Near Fine. Bookseller Inventory # 1071

Item Description: (Basel, Rhein-Verlag, 1927)., 1927. Braune Original-Halblederbände auf fünf Bünden mit marmorierten Buntpapierüberzügen, türkis-grünen goldgeprägtem Rückenschildern und Kopfgoldschnitt. Lesebändchen. Einer der einflussreichsten und bedeutendsten Romane des 20. Jahrhunderts. Erste deutsche Ausgabe. Privatdruck. Eins von 1000 nummerierten Exemplaren auf Bütten. Außergewöhnlich schönes Exemplar. Die erste öffentliche deutsche Ausgabe erschien erst 1930. - „‘Ulysses‘ ist die größte Schöpfung unter den Romanen des zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts" schrieb die New York Times: „Das Buch wird seinen Verfasser so gewiß unsterblich machen, wie der ‚Gargantua‘ Rabelais und ‚Die Brüder Karamasow‘ Dostojewski unsterblich gemacht haben". Die Bedeutung des Romans ist auch in Deutschland bekannt. „Nach Gott hat Shakespeare am meisten geschaffen", sagt John Eglinton in der Bibliotheksszene des ‚Ulysses‘. Joyce-Kenner haben hinzugefügt: „Nach Shakespeare hat Joyce am meisten geschaffen". So ist es (= Wolfgang Hildesheimer in: ZEIT-Bibliothek der 100 Bücher). - Bernhard Zeller (Das 20. Jahrhundert. Ausstellung, Marbach): Der „Ulysses" von Joyce und Prousts „Auf den Spuren der verlorenen Zeit" haben die Entwicklung des modernen deutschen Romans vielfältig beeinflußt. Der „Ulysses" trat spektakulärer in Erscheinung. Seine (vorliegende) erste deutsche Ausgabe wurde nicht nur von Kritikern, sondern fast mehr noch von den Autoren begrüßt, die er betraf. Für Alfred Döblin war das Werk des Iren bei seiner Arbeit am „Berlin Alexanderplatz" „ein guter Wind in meinen Segeln". - In achtzehn Episoden beschreibt das Mammutwerk einen einzigen Tag im Leben des Iren Leopold Bloom in Dublin und wurde damit zu einem der einflussreichsten und bedeutendsten Romane des 20. Jahrhunderts. - "Der deutsche Privatdruck des Ulysses von James Joyce wurde [auf Veranlassung von Ivan Goll] in den Jahren 1925-1927 durch Vermittlung des Pariser Büros des Rhein-Verlags in Basel in einer einmaligen Auflage von tausend Abzügen auf Bütten und hundert unverkäuflichen, für die Presse bestimmten Abzügen auf Dünndruck hergestellt". - Der Privatcharakter und die kleine Auflage waren durch die Sorge des Verlages diktiert, dass das Werk der Zensur unterliegen könnte. Die 1922 in Paris veröffentlichte Originalausgabe erschien sowohl der englischen als auch der amerikanischen Zensur zu freizügig und blieb elf Jahre lang verboten. Diese englische Originalausgabe (erster Druck der ersten Ausgabe in 750 Exemplaren) erzielte 2014 auf einer Hamburger Auktion 19.000 EURO. - Der Roman, durch den Joyce schlagartig berühmt (und berüchtigt) wurde, gilt heute als der einflußreichste und bedeutendste des 20. Jahrhunderts. "[Es ist] das Werk eines der größten Schriftsteller, nicht nur unserer Zeit, sondern aller europäischer Literatur" (T. S. Eliot). - Fast fünfzig Jahre lang wurde Goyerts Ulysses-Übersetzung in Deutschland rezipiert. Eine Unterbrechung gab es im nationalsozialistischen Deutschland, nachdem Joyce von dem Bochumer Lehrer und Anglisten Karl Arns im ersten Band seines Index der anglo-jüdischen Literatur (1938) denunziert worden war. Dort schreibt Arns auf Seite 6: „trotzdem lassen wir eine Liste solcher nicht-jüdischer Autoren folgen, die Juden und jüdische Motive behandeln ". Dass Joyce keineswegs jüdisch war, spielte für die Nazis keine Rolle. Die Figur des Leopold Bloom im Ulysses und der avantgardistische Stil von Joyce reichten aus, die Bücher von Joyce aus den deutschen öffentlichen Büchereien zu verbannen. - Hans Wollschläger (1975): Es gibt zur Zeit immer noch keinen zuverlässigen, fehlerfreien englischen Text des „Ulysses": alle Ausgaben des Originals sind unverhältnismäßig korrupt. – „Dennoch kann man behaupten, dass Goyert treuer als Wollschläger überträgt, weil er, sieht man von den Fehlern ab, den Kernbedeutungen der Wörter des Originals meist näher bleibt" (Die Ulysses-Übersetzungen von Georg Goyert und Hans Wollschläger). - Hack 27.4.

Item Description: New York: B. W. Huebsch, 1916, 1916. Octavo. Finely bound by The Chelsea Bindery in dark blue morocco, titles and decoration to spine, raised bands, single rule to boards, twin rule to turn-ins, plain burgundy coated endpapers, gilt edges. A fine copy. First edition, first printing. Due at least in part to the adverse reception of the Egoist serialisation of A Portrait, no English printer would print the book for fear of prosecution under the obscenity laws. So it was Huebsch that undertook the true first publication. He would send from this print run about 750 sets of sheets for issue in the UK in February 1917. Whilst the number of copies issued in America is undetermined the number could not have been large since he had sold out by March and called for a second printing by April. A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man was Joyce's first novel and introduces to the world one of the two key characters in Ulysses. Stephen Dedalus was created by the author as a kind of doppelganger - the author as he would have been had he not left Ireland in 1904. Its opening sentence by itself redefining what a novel could be. Bookseller Inventory # 79658

A landmark in sensibility, the prose moves forward in complexity from the child's sensations at the beginning to the adolescent subtleties at the end" (Connolly). This is the first edition of the book published in New York in 1916. Included is facsimile of TLS review of 1 March 1917 by Arthur Clutton-Brock with photo of Joyce in 1918.

Item Description: New York: B. W. Huebsch, 1916, 1916. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine gilt and to upper board in blind. Cloth lightly rubbed at extremities with a few tiny marks. An excellent copy. First edition, first printing, and a very attractive copy of Joyce's first novel. Due at least in part to the adverse reception of the Egoist serialisation of A Portrait, no English printer would print the book for fear of prosecution under the obscenity laws. It was Huebsch who undertook the true first publication in book form, first published on 29 December 1916. He sent from this print run about 750 sets of sheets for issue in the UK the following February. Although the number of copies issued in America is unknown, it is unlikely to have been large since Huebsch had sold out by March and called for a second printing by April. Slocum & Cahoon A11.

Item Description: Paris: Shakespeare and Company, 1922. Hardcover. Book Condition: Wie neu. Dust Jacket Condition: Wie neu. 1. Auflage. Paris: Shakespeare and Company, 1922. First Edition, First Printing. This number 959 of the edition of 750 numbered copies (of a total edition of 1000 copies). Original blue wrappers - front and back - bound in, top edge gilt. A tall copy (leaf size 183 by 235mm) in near fine state: the wrappers very fresh, the pages clean, only the edges slightly browning. Bound in the 70ies in light green leather with pink, black and light blue inlays, "ULYSSES" and "JOYCE" stamped in gilt on the spine and housed in a plain grey slipcase. This is a copy that you will love to handle and read as is. However, the binding is faded on the spine and there are some marks to the front and back, so the book might be enhanced by a new leather binding and slipcase by one of our leading artists in the field.

Item Description: Shakespeare & Co, Paris, 1922. Book Condition: Vg. First edition. The Novel of the 20th Century. p.p. 733. Royal 8vo. Number 734 of 750 copies on hand made paper. Bound in half green morocco, marbled boards by Maltbys of Oxford with their gilt signature. The original blue front wrapper bound in on which a previous less than enthusiastic owner had written "A Pornographic Bible". James Joyce's masterpiece celebrating the events of one day (16th June 1904) in the lives of three Dubliners and modelled on characters in Homer's Odyssey. The choice of June 16, 1904 was later revealed by Joyce as the day "Nora made me a man" and by setting Ulysses on this date he provided the most eloquent if indirect tribute to Nora, a recognition of the determining effect upon his life of his attachment to her. A copy of the First Edition of Ulysses should be essential for any top quality Irish library and at a lower price to a signed Harry Potter novel is not excessive. Bookseller Inventory # 331_12

Item Description: London: Egoist Press, 1916, 1916. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles in blind to upper board and to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. Housed in a dark blue quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Some minor browning to endpapers but an exceptionally fresh copy in the restored dust jacket. The bulk of the restoration was to replace the lower 6 cm (2 1/2 inches) of the spine panel and to reassemble the remaining and original panels, the only facsimile work being the publisher's name at on the spine panel. Of the utmost rarity. We have seen just 3 examples of the UK issue of the first edition and know of just a couple more. First edition, English issue from American sheets. Joyce's first novel was published in America by Huebsch from whom Harriet Shaw Weaver, the proprietor of the Egoist Press, purchased "not more than 750" sets of sheets, issuing them here a year before her own UK printing of 1917. Copies in this condition are very uncommon. Slocum & Cahoon A12. Bookseller Inventory # 82171

Item Description: Paris: Shakespeare & Co., 1922, 1922. Quarto (258 × 200 mm) in eights. Finely bound by the Chelsea Bindery in green-blue morocco, titles and decoration to spine gilt, raised bands, twin rule to boards gilt, Greek key to turn-ins gilt, japan vellum doublures, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Housed in a green-blue leather entry slipcase. A fine copy. First edition, first printing, number 164 of 150 large paper copies numbered between 101 and 250. Ulysses was published in imitation of the traditional three-tiered French format aimed at both connoisseurs and readers: 100 copies were printed on Dutch handmade paper and signed by Joyce; 150 copies were printed on heavier vergé d'Arches to create this large paper format; and the remaining 750 copies formed a small format trade issue, printed on less expensive vergé à barbes stock. With its generous margins, the large paper issue is the most aesthetically pleasing of the three. Bookseller Inventory # 103479
