    Softcover. Condizione: Wie neu. Condizione sovraccoperta: Wie neu. 1. Auflage. Paris: Shakespeare and Company, 1922. First Edition, First Printing. Original blue printed wrappers. 4to. This is number 986 of the edition of 750 numbered copies of a total edition of 1000 copies (+ some more described below). Very minor wear to extremities of the spine and some slight toning to the wrappers, else a lovely copy: uncut, mostly unopened and completely untouched by any restorer. Small contemporary portrait of Joyce by C. Rup mounted on the recto of the half-title (taken from the original subscriber's form, which is in itself very rare) together with the neat signature of Frank Layton, who bought this copy on the 16th of March in 1922 according to Sylvia Beach's "Ulysses" Notebook. There are six known versions of the first edition of Ulysses: 1. Unbound proofs. 2. Review copies that came without the famous blue wrappers. 3-5. The three editions of the published version: 100 signed (3); 150 on large paper (4); 750 regular copies numbered like the one we are offering here (5). 6. There are some unnumbered copies - most prominently the one inscribed to the printer Darantiere - hors commerce. Please note that any copy of the first edition of Ulysses in its original condition is flimsier than any paperback you have ever owned: the book is heavy, the folded blue paper front and back covers only strengthened by a sheet of paper and the spine directly glued on to the book. This copy formed part of the Allan D. McGuire Collection of Cyril Connolly's "The Modern Movement - 100 Key Books from England, France and America 1880-1950" and was also exhibited in the "Allspace in a Notshall" Exhibition in Zürich in 1991. It comes with a beautiful three-quarter morocco slipcase and all the documentation of provenance and exhibtion. The Book of Books on any list of modern fiction (even after 100 years) and a great and funny read at that, which comes here in beautiful condition and with a full record of provenance. It is part of our Catalogue 10: James Joyce, which you can browse through at ygrbooks.ch.

    Hardcover. Condizione: Very Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. Specially bound in full leather in 2 volumes. This is number 389 of a the special 750 copies printed on handmade, laid paper. Signed and dated in ink by James Joyce: "James Joyce, Paris, 9. ix. 1924" on the front endpaper following the front blue wrapper. Joyce's Signature has been authenticated by Glenn Horowitz of NYC. Volume I contains 370 pages. Volume II begins on page 371 and and ends on p. 732 with the "Trieste-Zurich-Paris, 1914-1921" dateline. The next page is printed in capital letters: "Printed for Sylvia Beach by Maurice Darantiere at Dijon, France." The rear wrapper is not present at the end of volume two. Both volumes have been specially bound in full leather with 4 gilt rectangular rules and a delicate inner rectangle of hand-tooled chain patterns culminating in larger floral designs at the inside corners of the front and rear boards. Both front boards bear the name of "JOAN" in vertical gilt capital letters. The spine of volume I is missing 6" of the 9.5" of the spine length, but the top portion with "I" is present. The front blue wrapper printed in White with "Ulysses" by James Joyce is clean and crisp, as is the text throughout volumes one and two. The top edges are gilded. And there are predominantly orange and grey marbled endpapers. There is hand-tooled dentelle gilding along the front and rear inside edges of the boards as well. Both volumes have some pencil scrawlings on the front endpapers, but nothing affecting the text. Despite the unusual two-volume format and the missing rear wrapper, modern first edition authority Allen Ahearn opined that this signed and dated copy in Joyce's hand of one of the 750 specially printed first editions is perhaps as scarce as one of the 100 signed copies, given that none of the 750 copies was issued with Joyce's signature. This copy was signed and dated two years after publication in 1924. This edition is limited to 1000 copies: 100 copies (signed) on Dutch handmade paper numbered from 1 to 100; 150 copies on vergé d'Arches numbered from 101 to 250; 750 copies on handmade paper numbered from 251 to 1000. This is copy No. 389. "The publisher asks the reader s indulgence for typographical errors unavoidable in the exceptional circumstances. S.B." In a review in The Dial, T.S. Eliot said of Ulysses: "I hold this book to be the most important expression which the present age has found; it is a book to which we are all indebted, and from which none of us can escape." He went on to claim that Joyce was not at fault if people after him did not understand it: "The next generation is responsible for its own soul; a man of genius is responsible to his peers, not to a studio full of uneducated and undisciplined coxcombs." The book has its critics; Virginia Woolf stated that "Ulysses was a memorable catastrophe immense in daring, terrific in disaster." Ulysses has been called "the most prominent landmark in modernist literature", a work where life's complexities are depicted with "unprecedented, and unequalled, linguistic and stylistic virtuosity." That style has been stated to be the finest example of the use of stream-of-consciousness in modern fiction, with the author going deeper and farther than any other novelist in handling interior monologue. This technique has been praised for its faithful representation of the flow of thought, feeling, mental reflection, and shifts of mood. (Wikipedia) First Edition, One of 750 numbered copies. Signed by Author(s).

    First edition, number 555 of 750 copies on handmade paper numbered 251 to 1,000, in the distinctive blue wrappers. The original purchaser of this copy, as recorded by Sylvia Beach, was André Gide. Sylvia Beach's Ulysses notebook records, from 21 May 1921 to 1 July 1922, the names of subscribers and the order date for the first edition of Ulysses. Copy 555 is duly noted as purchased by André Gide on 27 February (during the month of publication). The extant evidence suggests that André Gide was a significant admirer of Joyce. On 30 April 1931 he wrote to Joyce expressing pleasure at receiving "une lettre du grand Joyce" ("a letter from the great Joyce") and signed himself "votre admirateur attentif et affectueux" ("your attentive and affectionate admirer") (Letters, p. 218). Nora Joyce, however, after the death of her husband, was asked for her opinion of Gide. She responded that "when you've been married to the greatest writer in the world, you can't remember all the little men." Ulysses was published in imitation of the traditional three-tiered French format aimed at both connoisseurs and readers: 100 signed copies on Dutch handmade paper; 150 large-paper copies printed on heavier vergé d'Arches, and 750 copies on vergé à barbes forming the smaller trade issue. The novel was published on 2 February 1922. Widely recognized as the key book of 20th-century English literature, Ulysses is among the major works in the modernist canon, and its creator one of the great geniuses of all literature: "Joyce, not to mince words, is Ireland's Shakespeare, its Goethe, its Racine, its Tolstoy" (John Sutherland). The book also proved to be a major test case for laws of freedom of expression. "Forced underground by censors. this was a cryptoclassic already before it was read, a subversive colossus" (Sherry, p. 1). Slocum & Cahoon A17; Horowitz, Census, p. 127. Richard Ellmann (ed.), Letters of James Joyce, Vol. III, 1966; Vincent Sherry, Joyce: "Ulysses", 2004. Small quarto. Original blue wrappers, front wrapper lettered in white. Housed in a custom blue morocco-backed folding box. Booklabel of Pierre Bergé (loose). Minor creases to front wrapper, extremities slightly frayed as usual, some minor repairs to joints, crease to preliminary blank, some light browning; a crisp and near-fine copy.

    First edition of Joyce's masterpiece, one of 750 numbered copies printed on handmade paper from a total edition of 1000 copies, this is number number 276. Thick quarto, original blue and white wrappers. In near fine condition, square and tight with a touch of rubbing to the crown and foot of the spine. Housed in a custom slipcase. An exceptional example. 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).

    Signed limited first edition of Joyce's masterpiece, one of 100 numbered copies printed on handmade paper from a total edition of 1000 copies, this is number 51. Thick quarto, original blue and white wrappers. Laid in are the following pamphlets: Extracts from Press Notices of UlyssesÂby JamesÂJoyce" and the Shakespeare and Company prospectus for Ulysses, with woodcut vignette of Shakespeare, photographic portrait of Joyce tipped in. In near fine condition, rebacked. 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).

    contemporary full calf. Condizione: Very Good. First edition. THE MOST IMPORTANT OBTAINABLE COPY OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL NOVEL OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY: "TO STANNIE | JIM" ONE OF THE FIRST PRESENTATION COPIES OF THE FIRST EDITION OF ULYSSES, INSCRIBED BY JAMES JOYCE TO HIS BROTHER STANISLAUS. FIRST EDITION, number 308 of 750 copies printed on handmade paper. A presentation copy, inscribed by Joyce to his brother, Stanislaus Joyce, on the front blank: "To Stannie | Jim | Paris | 11 February 1922". On the relationship between the brothers Stanislaus and James Joyce: "I received 'Ulysses' in good order. I suppose "Circe" will stand as the most horrible thing in literature. Isn't your art in danger of becoming a sanitary science. I recognize, of course the almost unlimited adaptability of your style." - Stanislaus, in a letter to James Joyce, on February 26, 1922, referring to this copy. "The steadiest influence available was his brother. Stanislaus might be tedious, but he was a rock." - Richard Ellmann Stanislaus's relationship with Joyce was (as with most brothers) a complicated one. Three years his junior, Stanislaus often idolized his older brother, even making notes of Joyce's clever remarks in his diary. Stanislaus was also among the first to recognize Joyce's genius, and probably best understood it, which most likely helped him accept the unpredictable nature of Joyce's temperament in later years. In 1903 Stanislaus recorded the following account of their relationship in his diary: My life has been modeled on Jim's example, yet when I am accused by my unprepossessing Uncle John or Gogarty of imitating Jim, I can truthfully deny the charge. It was not mere aping as they imply, I trust I am too clever and my mind too old for that. It was more an appreciation in Jim of what I myself really admire and wish for most. But it is terrible to have a cleverer older brother. I get small credit for originality. I follow Jim in nearly all matters of opinion, but not all. Jim, I think has even taken a few opinions from me. In some things, however, I have never followed him. In drinking, for instance, in whoring, in speaking broadly, in being frank without reserve with others, in attempting to write verse or prose or fiction, in manner, in ambition, and not always in friendships. I perceive he regards me as quite commonplace and uninteresting - he makes no attempts at disguise - and though I follow him fully in this matter of opinion I cannot be expected to like it. It is a matter beyond the power of either of us to help. In 1904, when Joyce eloped with Nora Barnacle, whom he declined to marry, he was regarded by friends and family alike as both foolish and misguided. Stanislaus, though, staunchly defended his brother to his critics and started an active correspondence, which he maintained throughout most of their lives while separated. It was not long before Stanislaus, at Joyce's imploring, joined them in Trieste, and for the next fourteen years he acted in turn as his brother's counsellor, protector, literary agent, and financial backer. He would frequently carry Joyce home from bars in a comatose state, and much of Stanislaus' modest earnings would end up in Joyce's more extravagant pocket. When Joyce and Nora were thrown out of their rooms for non-payment of rent, Stanislaus bailed them out. He was also a constant literary influence, not only as a source of reassurance as Joyce received a steady stream of rejection slips between 1906 and 1914, but in his important practical assistance. It was he who suggested the title for Chamber Music and put the poems in order, and when, just prior to publication, Joyce decided their sentiment was false and wanted to cancel the printing, it was Stanislaus who persuaded him that he should allow the book to appear, in the interest of his future literary career. That Joyce would not have had the same recognition and output without Stanislaus' influence is almost irrefutable. As Ellmann noted, "The steadiest influence available was his brother. Stanislaus might be tedious, but he was a rock." Joyce, however, showed scant gratitude, and would regularly "forget" to repay the money lent to him by Stanislaus. He had initially talked of dedicating Dubliners to Stanislaus, but this, too, seemed to slip his mind when it came to publication, and during the transformation of Stephen Hero (a title suggested by Stanislaus) into the largely autobiographical A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, the main casualty was Maurice, Stephen's brother. Stanislaus never mentioned these injustices, but the enduring memory of them, coupled with Joyce finding himself in less need of his brother's support, resulted in their relationship being immutably altered, so much so that after Joyce moved to Paris in June 1920 to prepare for the publication of Ulysses, they were to meet only three more times, though they continued to correspond, and Stanislaus was instrumental in forwarding some of Joyce's papers from Trieste so he could complete the work. A sign of residual brotherly affection, though, can be seen in Stanislaus naming his son, and only child, James in 1943. Throughout the formation of his literary career, virtually up to the point of completion of Ulysses, Stanislaus had been a constant, constructive presence in Joyce's life. This copy conceivably marks a belated acknowledgement of his contribution, and while the brevity of the inscription may seem at odds to that idea, its length and form are almost identical to those in the other known copies inscribed in February 1922 copies. However, Joyce's use here of the personal diminutive "Jim"-one he reserved for only the closest of family inscriptions-is unique among these copies, and can be construed as further testimony to their intimate connection and shared history. Just one other first edition of Ulysses, a defective press copy inscribed to his aunt (now at the University of Tulsa), is known to be inscribed "Jim". Stanislaus's fondness and admiration for his brother continued throughout h.
