Catalogue Note

"The first edition of A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man was printed in America and the first English edition was made up of American sheets because English printers would not accept the responsibility of printing it" (Slocum and Cahoon. p.19). At least seven printers refused the job on moral grounds.
