Ulysses

JOYCE, James

JOYCE, James Ulysses

Bodley Head, 1936.

First authorised English edition. Number 104 of 900 copies on japon. Original publisher's green buckram with Homeric bow designed by Eric Gill in gilt to the upper cover and gilt titles to the spine, in buff dustwrapper printed in black and red. Top edge gilt, others uncut. A fine copy in a fine dustwrapper which is bright and crisp. An exceptional copy.

Although Ulysses was first published in Paris in 1922, it was not until the 1933 decision in the US District Court that Ulysses was not obscene, overturning the earlier successful prosecution of The Little Review for serialising the book, that legitimate publication in Britain and America was possible.
For the first UK publication of this now notorious work, it was decided to limit publication to 1000 copies, paralleling the 1922 publication, with the first 100 signed by Joyce. The edition contains appendices relating to the legal case surrounding publication and the first bibliography of Joyce.
