[Pola: Privately Printed for Joyce, 1905. First edition. 1 page, 96 lines in two columns. Printed on Mercantil Eagle Paper. 4to. Minor wear at right edge (1cm loss at bottom corner margin). First edition. 1 page, 96 lines in two columns. Printed on Mercantil Eagle Paper. 4to. The Earliest Joyce. The earliest surviving printing of Joyce's second work, a broadside poem printed at Pola on the Adriatic (now Pula, Croatia). This was preceded by a Dublin printing for which Joyce read proofs, but the Dublin printer was unpaid and no example has survived. "The type-font and the semi-inverted quotation marks used on this broadside, however, are characteristic of Continental printing" (Slocum and Cahoon). Joyce's first printed work was Et Tu, Healy!, printed when he was nine years old; a "ghost" as no copy has survived. Slocum and Cahoon A2 ("probably less than 100" copies printed). OCLC: 9737080
