Fine Copy of Ulysses
Joyce (James)
Ulysses, 4to Published for the Egoist Press, London, by John Rodker, Paris 1922. First English Edition. Limited 1480 (2000) on handmade paper. Untrimmed & unopened, orig. wrappers, some wear, otherwise a very good clean copy of Joyce’s great masterpiece.
* This is effectively the second impression of the First Edition, printed by Darantiere from the First Edition plates as soon as that edition was exhausted. It was printed for Joyce’s patron Harriet Weaver, who was unable to fine a printer in England, and was distributed mainly by Rodker and Ezra Pound, working from an office in Paris. At least 500 copies, perhaps more, were intercepted by U.S. Customs, and it is now scarcer than the First Edn. (1)
