Description

Property from a Florida Collector

JOYCE, JAMES

Ulysses. Paris: Shakespeare and Company, 1922


4to (9⅜ x 7⅜ in.; 238 x 188 mm). Uncut and largely unopened. Publisher's blue wrappers, front cover printed in white; some very slight discoloration, very minor chipping at corners, spine lightly repaired. Half blue morocco slipcase, chemise.


First edition, no. 857 of 750 copies on handmade paper (of a whole edition of 1,000). According to Sylvia Beach's "Ulysses Notebook," this copy was sold on 2 March 1922 to the London bookseller F. B. Neumayer; it was one of five copies of the first edition that were purchased by Neumayer according to Beach (see 1996 Glenn Horowitz catalogue, James Joyce). An outstanding copy of a notoriously fragile publication.
