Catalogue Note

First edition.

Joyce had made two unsuccessful attempts to publish Dubliners but eventually came to an agreement with Grant Richards in which Joyce would receive no royalties on the first 500 copies sold and would promise to buy 120 copies, giving Richards first refusal on all his works for the next five years.
