The publishing history of Joyce's collection of short stories is convoluted, but well-known. Grant Richards originally accepted the book for publication in his list for 1906. After skirmishes with printers over objectionable passages, the publisher abandoned the book. It was later picked up by Maunsel, who printed an edition of 1000 copies in 1910. After Joyce refused Maunsel's manager's request to make emendations to the text, the edition was destroyed. Joyce subsequently added two important stories - 'A Little Cloud' and 'The Dead' (one of the finest of all modern short stories)- to the collection. In 1914, the author returned to Richards, who published the book in June of that year.
