    First American edition of Joyceâ s masterpiece. Octavo, bound in full morocco by the Harcourt Bindery with gilt titles and tooling to the spine in four compartments within raised bands, double gilt ruling to the front and rear panels, gilt signature of Joyce to the front panel, gilt ruled inner dentelles stamp-signed by the Harcourt Bindery, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. In fine condition. Housed in a custom slipcase. An exceptional presentation. "Within a month of the publication, the first printing of Ulysses [Shakespeare and Company, Paris, 1922] was practically sold out, and within a year Joyce had become a well-known literary figure. Ulysses was explosive in its impact on the literary worldâ ¦ Then began the great game of smuggling the edition into countries where it was forbidden, especially England and the United States. The contraband article was transported across the seas and national borders in all sorts of cunning ways" (de Grazia, 27). In this edition, the text of Joyce's great work is preceded by a foreword, synopsis of the District Court decision, and letter from Joyce to his publisher, Bennett Cerf, all discussing the extraordinary controversy surrounding the book's publication. In 1929 an unauthorized American edition of the novel appeared, a piracy of the legitimate ninth printing of Shakespeare and Company. "This Random House edition was set up from the text of a copy of that [pirated] edition, incorporating most of its typographical errors and adding a few new ones" (Slocum A21). The United States' ban on Ulysses was not lifted until December 6th, 1933; one month later the first authorized American edition was delivered to the public. Joyce's "novel is universally hailed as the most influential work of modern times" (Grolier Joyce 69). Named by Modern Library as one of the 100 greatest novels of the 20th century.

    First illustrated edition of Joyceâ s landmark Ulysses, number 1134 of 1500 copies signed by Henri Matisse, with 26 illustrations by him, one of the 20th-centuryâ s most desirable illustrated books, combining the work of two great modern artists. Large quarto, original gilt-stamped pictorial brown cloth, original slipcase. In near fine condition with the rare original slipcase. With an introduction by Stuart Gilbert. An exceptional example. One of the most arresting collaborations in 20th-century literature. "It was a great idea to bring them together; celebrities of the same generation, of similar virtuosity" (Wheeler, 15). The 26 beautiful full-page illustrations by Matisse accompany the text of Joyce's Ulysses, including six soft-ground etchings with reproductions of the sketches on blue and yellow paper. "One of the very few American livres de peintres issued before World War II. According to George Macy [this work's designer], who undertook this only American publication of Matisse's illustrations, he asked the artist how many etchings the latter could provide for $5000. 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 compositions" (Artist and the Book 197).

    First edition thus. The iconic modernist book, signed by Matisse - one of the great editions of one of the great books. Joyce's masterpiece, in the deluxe edition published after the 1933 landmark ruling in the case of United States v. One Book Called Ulysses. Eleven years after the book's initial publication, a US court affirmed that in the matter of obscenity, One Book Called Ulysses had soundly defeated the United States, and immediately thereafter, Limited Editions Club founder George Macy began to plan what would be a monumental achievement: a landmark among Matisse's livres d'artiste, reproducing his preparatory drawings alongside the final soft-ground etchings; the only illustrated ULYSSES with an introduction that Joyce allowed to be published; and the most accurate text of the novel published in the US until 1961. In the early days of the project, believing that the artist "[knew] the French translation very well" and only wanted for an idea of the Irish context, Joyce proposed to send him an illustrated Dublin weekly of 1904 for visual reference. But Matisse had no interest in the specificities of Ireland, and, though his drawings were organized around the Odyssey itself, barely more interest in the specificities of Greece (the two struggling women of his "Calypso," Hillary Spurling suggests, were "an image that had more to do with the artist's own home life that summer than with either Joyce or Homer.") Seeing the sample drawings, George Macy began to plea for some connection, any connection between image and text: "While we understand, and admire, the idea by which the plates are to be illustrative of Homer's Odyssey, it is essential that the incidents of the Odyssey which are illustrated must also make reference to incidents in Joyce's book." This was no way to speak to a great artist. Matisse responded by matching his drawings to individual chapters without explanation, saying only that they represented "reactions of my mind before Joyce's work" and, by the way, "Mr. James Joyce, who knows about the way I am illustrating his book, quite agrees with me on it." This would perhaps have been news to Mr. James Joyce, whose best-known comment on the finished product was: "If they had been signed L.J. [Lucia Joyce] instead of H.M. people would have had a different tale to tell. I am only too painfully aware that Lucia has no future but that does not prevent me from seeing the difference between what is beautiful and shapely and what is ugly and shapeless. As usual I am in a minority of one." Setting aside Joyce's opinion, Matisse's work may be viewed as conceptually linked to his own: not illustrations in any conventional sense, but a parallel artistic project, a second great modernist manipulation of the ODYSSEY. Another plausible interpretation of Matisse's drawings understands them as a response not to the text but to "the critical apparatus that developed around the novel during the 1930s" (Brown), and specifically to Stuart Gilbert's perceptive introduction. As for contemporary reception, members of the Limited Editions Club expressed one of three reactions: A vile book, dressed up with great art; a great book, ruined by "crackpot drawings"; or a magnificent work, the expression of "perfect rapport among author, illustrator and designer." The third judgment has held up quite well. 11.75'' x 9''. Original brown Bancroft buckram with gilt globe stamped to front board. In original slipcase. Designed by George Macy. Introduction by Stuart Gilbert. Illustrated with six etchings and 20 tipped-in drawings on blue and yellow paper. 363, [1] pages. Edition of 1500 numbered copies signed by Matisse. This copy no. 1264. Slipcase with light expert restoration at edges; some rubbing and soiling overall. Book just starting at top of rear hinge, but firm. Else clean and bright. Both housed in a custom quarter leather over black cloth archival clamshell box with gilt title spine. Very good plus in a very good slipcase.

    First Edition. "JOYCE, James. Ulysses Prospectus. Paris: Shakespeare and Company, 1921. One folded leaf, printed on both sides; pp. 4. Housed in a custom chemise and clamshell box. $10000.Very rare original Shakespeare and Company prospectus for Joyce's Ulysses.In 1919, Joyce's Ulysses began appearing in installments in the Egoist in London; although the Egoist's editor, Harriet Weaver, intended to publish the whole novel in book form (she even issued announcements of its forthcoming publication), no printers were willing to take the legal risk. The Little Review in Chicago then began publishing chapters, promptly leading to the prosecution of its editors, Margaret Anderson and Jane Heap, on charges of obscenity. Upon hearing of this from Joyce himself, Sylvia Beach offered to publish the work through her Parisian bookstore, Shakespeare and Company. "Undeterred by lack of capital, experience, and all the other requisites of a publisher, I went right ahead with Ulysses," wrote Beach in her memoir. Joyce had modest goals for publication: "He thought that if a dozen or so copies were printed there would be some left over. A thousand copies were to be printed, I told him firmly."A prospectus was printed announcing that Ulysses, by James Joyce, would be published 'complete as written' (a most important point) by Shakespeare and Company, Paris, in 'the autumn of 1921.' The prospectus stated that the edition was to be limited to a thousand copies: 100 printed on Dutch paper and signed, at 350 francs; 150 on verge-d'Arches, at 250 francs; and the remaining 750 on ordinary paper, at 150 francs. There was a postage-stamp-sized photo of the author, gaunt and bearded the one taken in Zurich and excerpts from articles by those critics who had spotted Ulysses on its first appearance in the Little Review. On the back of the prospectus was a blank form to be filled in with the subscriber's name and his choice of the kind of copy he wanted" (Beach, Shakespeare and Company, 46-48).The prospectus was successful, and orders began pouring in from throughout the world, in part due to the tireless promotion of the work and distribution of the prospectus by friends of Beach such as Ezra Pound. The prospectus "was probably written by Adrienne. It was paid for at the beginning of May and mailed to people all over the world Friends in journalism publicized her plans. May and June were frantic. Mailings were sent out by the score Joyce haunted the bookshop every day waiting for the orders to arrive The Paris Tribune, the European edition of the Chicago Tribune, carried an article about her in its 28 May 1921 edition: 'American Girl Conducts Novel Bookstore Here.' In commenting on her coming publication of Ulysses, the article states, 'It is said that its present publication may mean that Miss Beach will not be allowed to return to America.' Such publicity added to the drama of publication" (Fitch, 81-84).After some delay, Ulysses was finally published on February 2, 1922. "Within a month of the publication, the first printing of Ulysses was practically sold out, and within a year Joyce had become a well-known literary figure. Ulysses was explosive in its impact on the literary world of 1922 Then began the great game of smuggling the edition into countries where it was forbidden, especially England and the United States. The contraband article was transported across the seas and national borders in all sorts of cunning ways" (de Grazia, 27). After Shakespeare and Company moved from its original location on the Rue Dupuytren to Rue de l'Odeon on in July 1921, the old address on the prospectus was crossed out and the new address written in, suggesting that this copy was one of the earlier ones mailed out (see Fitch, 91). With mounted photograph of Joyce on the last page, as issued. Leaf neatly split in two along fold; two small closed tears. Very scarce.".

The extraordinary fine Arion Press edition of Joyce's masterpiece Ulysses, signed by artist Robert Motherwell and featuring 40 of his etchings, together with extra promotional materials and publisher's correspondence. "Stately, plump Buck Mulligan came from the stairhead, bearing a bowl of lather on which a mirror and a razor lay crossed . . ." And so begins James Joyce's Ulysses, a rollicking tour-de-force of the English language, and Joyce's magnum opus. In the world of fine press publications, the Arion Press edition of Ulysses stands out as a remarkable testament to the power of artistic collaboration and visual storytelling. Created by the esteemed, long-running Arion Press of San Francisco, this major literary achievement offers readers a journey nonpareil where words and images intertwine to leave a lasting impression. At the heart of this exceptional edition are forty exquisite etchings by Robert Motherwell, a canonical figure in American Abstract Expressionist painting. Motherwell's free-flowing etchings breathe life into Joyce's prose and capture the essences of Stephen Dedalus, the Blooms, and Buck Mulligan, as well as of Ireland itself. Each etching contributes to the thematic and textural depth of Ulysses, providing readers with an evocative visual companion to the Dublin adventure. Included with the work are copies of The Ulysses Etchings of Robert Motherwell, pp. 26, only 250 copies published; Prospectus for Ulysses by James Joyce with Forty Etchings by Robert Motherwell, pp. 24; and two items of correspondence from 1988 to New York City bookdealer Carol H. Cohen from Andrew Hoyem and G. B. Carson of Arion Press. Ulysses is the twenty-seventh publication by the Arion Press. The book was designed by Andrew Hoyem and produced under his direction with G. B. Carson, Matthew Kelsey, Gerald Reddan, Glenn Todd, Lawrence Van Velzer, and Marilyn Young. Monotype for the roman was composed by Michael Bixler in Skaneateles, New York, and cast by Lewis Mitchell at Mackenzie Harris Corp. in San Francisco. The display type and italic in the text was set by hand; the pages were made up and the letterpress printing was done on a Miller cylinder press at Arion Press.The etching plates were prepared and proofed by Catherine Mosley at Robert Motherwell's studio in Greenwich, Connecticut. Additional color proofing and the intaglio printing was done at R. E. Townsend, Inc., in Georgetown, Massachusetts, by Robert Townsend and Katherine Hanlon. The titles of the twenty-two Motherwell illustrations are "James Joyce," "Telemachia - Odyssey - Nostos," "The Tower," "History," "Philology," "Nymph," "Communicants," "Hades," "Lungs," "Architecture," "Scylla and Charybdis," "The Streets," "Music," "Cyclops," "Star of the Sea," "The Hospital," "Midnight," "Skin-the-Goat," "Skeleton," "The Bed," "Penelope," "Trieste - Zurich - Paris.".

    Fourth printing of Joyce's masterpiece, signed by him. Quarto, original wrappers. Signed by the author in the month of publication on the front free endpaper, "JamesÂJoyce Paris 7 January 1924." In very good condition, the joints lightly repaired. Housed in a custom clamshell box. Uncommon signed. Ulysses was published in Paris by Shakespeare & Company, 1922. It was a struggle for the author to find a publisher, a comic irony considering that Ulysses is "[u]niversally hailed as the most influential work of modern times" (Grolier Joyce 69). Ulysses was an immediate success. The first printing sold out, and "within a year Joyce had become a well-known literary figure. Ulysses was explosive in its impact on the literary world of 1922" (de Grazia, 27). Even so, the book faced difficulties in global reception. It was banned in the U.K. and was prosecuted for the obscenity in the Nausicaa episode (Ellmann, 1982). Joyce's inspiration for the novel began as a young boy reading Charles Lamb's Adventures of Ulysses and writing an essay entitled "My Favorite Hero" after being impressed by the wholeness of the character (Goreman, 1939). The idea for the novel grew from a story in Dubliners in 1906, which Joyce expanded into a short book in 1907, before reconceptualizing it as the heady novel in 1914 (Ellmann, 1982). The book can initially seem unstructured and chaotic, and Joyce admitted that he "put in so many enigmas and puzzles that it will keep the professors busy for centuries arguing over what I meant" (The Observer, 2000). The French translator Stuart Gilbert published a defense of Ulysses shortly after its publication in which he supported the novel's use of obscenity and explained its internal structure and links to the Odyssey against accusations of ambiguity. Every episode, Gilbert explained, is connected to the Odyssey by theme, technique, and correspondence between characters. Another instance of Ulysses' literary contribution is his use of stream-of-consciousness, a technique employing carefully structured prose, both humorous and charactering, and involving puns and parodies. Joyce was a precursor to the use of stream of consciousness in the later decades. Similar narrative techniques were used by his contemporaries Virginia Wolfe, William Faulkner, and Italo Svevo. Their style can be better characterized as an "interior monologue, rather than stream of consciousness, is the appropriate term for the style in which [subjective experience] is recorded, both in The Waves and in Woolf's writing generally" (Stevenson, 1992).

    Hardcover. Condizione: Fine. First Edition. Copy #1365 of 1500 numbered copies, one of the 250 copies signed by both James Joyce and Henri Matisse. A fine copy in the original gilt-stamped brown cloth, entirely unfaded with tight hinges; in a solid and intact copy of publisher's slipcase (the book has a couple of faints spots or bruises to the deckles on foredge; the slipcase has light wear and a few marks). Illustrated with 6 original etchings and 20 photomechanical reproductions by Henri Matisse Housed in a sturdy custom brown cloth clamshell box with black leather spine stamped in gilt. One of the most storied illustrated books of the 20th century. Although the tale is often erroneously told that Matisse thought he had been hired to illustrated Homer (and did so), Alfred Barr wrote "Matisse remarked that he had observed how Joyce's Ulysses was divided into episodes based on Homer's Odyssey . Macy accepted the suggestion and Matisse went to work." (Matisse: His Art and His Public, 1951).

    First illustrated edition of Joyceâ s landmark Ulysses, one of only 250 examples signed by James Joyce in pen and Henri Matisse in pencil, with 26 illustrations by him, one of the 20th-centuryâ s most desirable illustrated books, combining the work of two great modern artists. Large quarto, original gilt-stamped pictorial brown cloth, original slipcase. In fine condition with the rare original slipcase which is in good condition and original glassine jacket. With an introduction by Stuart Gilbert. An exceptional example, most rare in this condition and in the seldom seen glassine jacket. One of the most arresting collaborations in 20th-century literature. "It was a great idea to bring them together; celebrities of the same generation, of similar virtuosity" (Wheeler, 15). The 26 beautiful full-page illustrations by Matisse accompany the text of Joyce's Ulysses, including six soft-ground etchings with reproductions of the sketches on blue and yellow paper. "One of the very few American livres de peintres issued before World War II. According to George Macy [this work's designer], who undertook this only American publication of Matisse's illustrations, he asked the artist how many etchings the latter could provide for $5000. 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 compositions" (Artist and the Book 197).

    First edition to be printed in Britain, one of 100 copies on handmade paper (this copy number 38) signed by the author. Quarto. Original vellum over boards, binding design by Eric Gill with large gilt bow on each cover, top edge gilt, others uncut. London, John Lane, The Bodley Head. A really fine copy, all but perfect, with a little foxing to the fore-edge, but otherwise unthumbed, un-bowed, and unmarked, lacking the original slipcase. This signed limited Bodley Head issue of Ulysses is certainly the most handsome edition of the text published in Joyce's lifetime. Its publication followed the legal success of the 1934 Random House Ulysses trial, which established the principle that a ?classic? text was allowed greater leeway in the matter of morals. The ?classic? argument was backed up by the luxuriousness and expense of the Bodley Head edition, for experience had proved over years that expensive books were much less likely to be attacked for obscenity, and it was published with no public scandal. A touch of creasing to head and tail of spine, some variation to the tone of the vellum binding, faint marking to covers, very light spotting to edges of text block, endpapers and margins of preliminary and terminal leaves. Slocum & Cahoon, A23.
