Descrizione: New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1935, 1935. First Openly Published U.S. Edition Illustrated and Signed By Henri Matisse JOYCE, James. [MATISSE, Henri, illustrator]. Ulysses. With an introduction by Stuart Gilbert and illustrations by Henri Matisse. New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1935. First openly published American edition, limited to 1500 numbered copies signed by the artist, this being copy number 1251. Large quarto (11 3/4 x 9 1/8 inches; 298 x 230 mm.). xv, [3], 363, [1, blank], [1, colophon], [5, blank] pp. Twenty-six plates, consisting of six soft-ground etchings, printed by hand, and twenty lithographic drawings, made as studies for the etchings, printed on thin colored papers. Publisher's brown Bancroft buckram embossed in gold on front cover and spine from a design by LeRoy H. Appleton. Edges sprinkled brown. Pictorial bookplate of W.S. Adams engraved by Alexander Runciman on the front paste-down. The gilt on the spine very slightly dull otherwise a very fine copy in a very good publisher's original slipcase. With The Limited Editions Club Monthly letter Number 77, October 1935, loosely laid-in. When Limited Editions Club founder and publisher George Macy decided to commission Henri Matisse to illustrate his edition of James Joyce's Ulysses, he was boldly moving into difficult territory: the scandalous Ulyssess had been branded obscene and banned in the United States until 1933, just two years prior to this edition. When Macy initially approached Matisse, the artist confessed that he had not read the book; Macy provided him with a French translation. "The very next morning, M. Matisse reported that he had read the book, that he understood its eighteen episodes to be parodies of similar episodes in the Odyssey, that he would like to give point to this fact by making his illustrations actually illustrations of the original episodes in Homer!" (Macy). Macy's original plan was for Joyce to sign each of the 1500 copies along with Matisse. The author only signed 250. The reasons are apocryphal: His poor eyesight was strained by the effort; writer's cramp; or umbrage that Matisse had illustrated Homer's Odyssey rather than his. And who did Leopold Bloom travel with on his odyssey though Dublin (aside from Stephen Dedalus) on June 16th, 1904? "Sinbad the Sailor and Tinbad the Tailor and Jinbad the Jailer and Whinbad the Whaler and Ninbad the Nailer and Finbad the Failer and Binbad the Bailer and Pinbad the Pailer and Minbad the Mailer and Hinbad the Hailer and Rinbad the Railer and Dinbad the Kailer and Vinbad the Quailer and Linbad the Yailer and Xinbad the Phtailer." Whether signed by both or just Matisse, this edition of Joyce's modern classic remains amongst the most desirable and collectible illustrated books of the twentieth century and one of the few livres d'pientres of the pre-WWII era.

Descrizione: New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1935, 1935. Quarto. Original brown cloth, title and decoration to spine, front cover with design by Le Roy Appleton incorporating Matisse's illustration to the Nausicaa episode in gilt bas-relief circled by Roman numerals representing the 24 hours of Bloomsday, brown speckled top edge, others untrimmed. Housed in the publisher's card slipcase. Very light rubbing to spine and front joint, small patch of gilt lost to centrepiece on front cover, very minor brown mark at foot of title and following page, contents thereafter clean; overall a near-fine copy. Slipcase a little cockled and rubbed, light wear at extremities, but all still holding. With 6 soft-ground etchings by Matisse and 20 reproductions of preliminary drawings on yellow and blue paper; printed in double columns; sidenotes and pagination printed in bisque. First illustrated edition, number 868 of 1,500 copies signed by Matisse. Within weeks of the lifting of the US ban on the book (6 December 1933), Limited Editions Club impresario George Macy approached Joyce about a special edition of Ulysses and by February 1934 he was en route to Paris to speak to Matisse about illustration. The artist had not read the book and despite being sent a copy of the French translation by Joyce scholar Stuart Gilbert was, according to the artist's neighbour Dorothy Bussy (née Strachey, sister of Lytton Strachey) "in a complete fog about it" (Goodwin, p. 91). Bussy lent Matisse a copy of Gilbert's seminal James Joyce's Ulysses: a Study (1930), which, she remarked, "he will certainly find useful as a guide through the labyrinth" (ibid.). Matisse quickly accepted the commission, saying that he had "spent the night reading the book and had discerned how the eight episodes in Joyce's Ulysses had their impulse in corresponding episodes in Homer's Odyssey. Macy accepted the suggestion and Matisse went to work" (ibid). Matisse's etchings depict the Calypso, Aeolus, Cyclops, Nausicaa, Circe, and Ithaca episodes. The text, with an explanatory introduction by Stuart Gilbert, is based on the second impression of the Odyssey Press edition (1933), which is "generally considered to be the most accurate and authoritative text" (Slocum & Cahoon, p. 30). In her study of Matisse and his relationship to literature, Kathryn Brown places the Limited Editions Club Ulysses "at the intersection of four important relationships: artist and writer; visual art and literary criticism; innovation and tradition; France and the United States".

Matisse But You Must Not Call It Joyce': The Making of the Limited Editions Club Ulysses", Joyce Studies Annual Vol. 10 (Summer 1999), pp. 85-103. Codice articolo 138549
