About this Item: The Limited Editions Club, New York, 1935. Large 4to (305 x 242 mm; 12 x 9½ in.). 382 pages. 6 etchings and 20 reproductions of preliminary drawings by Henri Matisse, tipped in. Original gilt-stamped pictorial brown cloth from a design by LeRoy H. Appleton; printed slipcase. A fine copy, the slipcase with a few repairs and minor stains. FIRST ILLUSTRATED EDITION, LIMITED ISSUE, one of 1500 copies, signed by Henri Matisse on the limitation leaf. Signed by Henri Matisse on the limitation leaf; printed on Worthy paper and bound by George McKibben & Son. "One of the very few American livres de peintres issued before World War II. According to [the publisher] 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" (Riva Castleman, A Century of Artists Books, pp. 35, 61). It was long thought that Joyce was unaware of Matisse's use of the Odyssey - and not his own novel - as the basis for his illustrations, but James A. Knapp discovered confirmation in the papers of Paul Léon that this was done with Joyce's knowledge and consent. "The second-hand claim that Matisse had never read Ulysses (based on an interview with Mme. Lucie Léon in 1953 and a letter to [Joyce biographer Richard] Ellmann from Mrs. Maria Jolas in 1959) does not prove that Matisse ignored the novel in favor of the Homeric epic, as Ellmann implies. The extent to which Matisse was familiar with the novel by the time he began work on the etchings is still not clear, especially when Joyce's confidence in Matisse is considered. Even if it is true that Matisse never read the novel, it is likely that he knew something of its experiment and its technique. According to Alfred Barr, at the very least Matisse had enough experience with the novel to suggest to Macy that he base his etchings on The Odyssey" (James A. Knapp, "Joyce and Matisse Bound: Modernist Aesthetics in the Limited Editions Club 'Ulysses.'" ELH, vol. 67, no. 4, 2000, pp. 1055-1081). See Alfred H. Barr, Jr., Matisse: His Art and His Public (New York: The Museum of Modern Art, 1951, p. 249). The American Livre de Peintre 32; The Artist and the Book 197; LEC Bibliography 71; Slocum & Cahoon A22.

About this Item: New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1935, 1935. First Openly Published U.S. EditionIllustrated and SignedBy Henri MatisseJOYCE, James. [MATISSE, Henri, illustrator]. Ulysses. With an introduction by Stuart Gilbert and illustrations by Henri Matisse. New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1935. First openly published American edition, limited to 1500 numbered copies signed by the artist, this being copy number 1251. Large quarto (11 3/4 x 9 1/8 inches; 298 x 230 mm.). xv, [3], 363, [1, blank], [1, colophon], [5, blank] pp. 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.Publisher's brown Bancroft buckram embossed in gold on front cover and spine from a design by LeRoy H. Appleton. Edges sprinkled brown. Pictorial bookplate of W.S. Adams engraved by Alexander Runciman on the front paste-down. The gilt on the spine very slightly dull otherwise a very fine copy in a very good publisher's original slipcase. With The Limited Editions Club Monthly letter Number 77, October 1935, loosely laid-in.When Limited Editions Club founder and publisher George Macy decided to commission Henri Matisse to illustrate his edition of James Joyce's Ulysses, he was boldly moving into difficult territory: the scandalous Ulyssess had been branded obscene and banned in the United States until 1933, just two years prior to this edition. When Macy initially approached Matisse, the artist confessed that he had not read the book; Macy provided him with a French translation. "The very next morning, M. Matisse reported that he had read the book, that he understood its eighteen episodes to be parodies of similar episodes in the Odyssey, that he would like to give point to this fact by making his illustrations actually illustrations of the original episodes in Homer!" (Macy).Macy's original plan was for Joyce to sign each of the 1500 copies along with Matisse. The author only signed 250. The reasons are apocryphal: His poor eyesight was strained by the effort; writer's cramp; or umbrage that Matisse had illustrated Homer's Odyssey rather than his.And who did Leopold Bloom travel with on his odyssey though Dublin (aside from Stephen Dedalus) on June 16th, 1904?"Sinbad the Sailor and Tinbad the Tailor and Jinbad the Jailer and Whinbad the Whaler and Ninbad the Nailer and Finbad the Failer and Binbad the Bailer and Pinbad the Pailer and Minbad the Mailer and Hinbad the Hailer and Rinbad the Railer and Dinbad the Kailer and Vinbad the Quailer and Linbad the Yailer and Xinbad the Phtailer."Whether signed by both or just Matisse, this edition of Joyce's modern classic remains amongst the most desirable and collectible illustrated books of the twentieth century and one of the few livres d'pientres of the pre-WWII era.Duthuit 235.

About this Item: The Limited Editions Club, New York, 1935. Hardcover. 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. Seller Inventory # 374
