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.

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.Duthuit 235.

Descrizione libro: The Limited Editions Club, New York, 1935. Condizione libro: Very Good +. Condizione sovraccoperta: Good. First edition thus. A Very Good+ (approaching Near Fine) copy of the book with bright gilt on the front cover. Spine gilt dulled and very slight dark marginal staining at the upper and lower edge to a handful of pages near the end (see images). In a Good only slipcase with several joints splitting, but still holding (a few joints reinforced with archival tape). Complete with the six soft-ground etchings and the 20 tipped in preliminary sketches on blue and yellow sheets. One of 1500 copies, although it is estimated that Joyce only signed a couple hundred copies.Joyce's masterwork of modernism, one of the great books of the 20th century. Though it follows a single day in the life of Dubliner Leopold Bloom - June 16th, a day which has since become a worldwide holiday - Ulysses's complex structure is actually inspired by Homer's Odyssey. The book's stream of consciousness prose and its experimental nature were groundbreaking, and many of the techniques Joyce uses have since become standard fare. Ulysses took Joyce over seven years to write, and the story of its publication became an epic in itself. The work was first released in serial from 1918 to 1920 in the magazine The Little Review, and published in Paris in a limited first edition in 1922 by Sylvia Beach, the owner of the Shakespeare and Company bookstore. It was not, however, released in the UK and United States, where the book had quickly been banned. In fact, copies were smuggled into both countries until a landmark obscenity trial cleared the book for American publication in 1934. Joyce claimed that he "put in so many enigmas and puzzles [into Ulysses] that it will keep the professors busy for centuries arguing over what I meant, and that's the only way of insuring one's immortality." Time has certainly proven him correct. "Ulysses is the most important contribution that has been made to fictional literature in the twentieth century. It will immortalize its author with the same certainty that Gargantua and Pantagruel immortalized Rabelais, and "The Brothers Karamazov" Dostoevsky. It is likely that there is no one writing English today that could parallel Joyce's feat?" (Contemporary NY Times Review, 1922)The Limited Editions Club was known for its impeccably illustrated volumes of classic texts. Founder George Macy had used such famous artists as Picasso - to illustrate a 1934 version of Lysistrata - and spared no expense for his 1935 edition of Ulysses. Matisse was paid $5,000 and made 26 illustrations for the work. Rumor has it that Matisse did not even read Ulysses itself, but rather based all of his work on the Odyssey. He did, however, stay in contact with Joyce while he worked on the drawings, done in charcoal and pencil. "?the edition represents a rare example of a text in which both author and illustrator occupy an important position in the canon of their respective arts." (James A Knapp, "Joyce and Matisse Bound: Modernist Aesthetics in the Limited Editions Club Ulysses"). Very Good + in Good dust jacket. Codice libro della libreria 1767

Descrizione libro: The Limited Editions Club, New York, 1935. Hardcover. Condizione libro: Fine. 1st Edition. FIRST ILLUSTRATED EDITION OF ULYSSES, ONE OF ONLY 250 COPIES SIGNED BY BOTH JAMES JOYCE AND HENRI MATISSE; one of the most celebrated books of the twentieth century. The Limited Editions Club's Ulysses is the first illustrated Ulysses and "one of the very few American livres de peintres issued before World War II. According to George Macy, who undertook this only American publication of Matisse's illustrations, he asked the artist how many etchings the latter could provide for five thousand dollars. 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, if less spontaneous, compositions" (The Artist and the Book, 197). Illustrated by Matisse with 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. One of only 250 copies signed by both Joyce and Matisse (the remaining 1250 copies of the edition were signed only by Matisse). New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1935. Quarto, original brown buckram embossed in gold on front cover and spine from a design by LeRoy H. Appleton; top edge sprinkled brown, others uncut; original slipcase. Minor wear to slipcase.
