by Joyce, James
Shakespeare and Company, 1924. 4th Edition. Soft cover. Good. 4th Printing of James Joyce's Ulysses Published in Paris in 1924 by Shakespeare and Company. This is the 4th printing, and only the second printing by Shakespeare and Company (the 1st printing was by Shakespeare and Co., but the 2nd and 3rd printings were done in the UK by a different publisher, the Egoist Press). One of the earliest obtainable printings after the first, due to the fact that many copies of the second and third printings (both by the Egoist Press) were destroyed by English and American authorities. Extremely fragile and in poor condition, with covers and many pages detached. Spine missing. It is rare to find such an early printing in the original wrappers that has not be hideously rebound, and therefore one that looks and feels much more like the original publication. But the paper is dry and brittle and flakes easily upon handling.
