Finnegans Wake

JOYCE, James

JOYCE, James Finnegans Wake

Faber, 1939.

First edition. Original maroon cloth with gilt titles to the spine in maroon dustwrapper lettered in yellow. With the author's 16pp errata booklet "Corrections of Misprints in Finnegans Wake" (Faber, 1945) "for distribution to purchasers of Finnegans Wake". A fine copy, in a superb fine dustwrapper which has the most minuscule edge wear, but is a crisp and clean copy of a dustwrapper prone to large chips and tears.

Initially titled Work in Progress, Finnegans Wake took Joyce sixteen years to write and is in many respects his most substantial and complex work.
"The Wake reminds me of the unfinished obelisk which lies on its side at Assuan, yet it has passages of unearthly beauty (particularly the last page) and huge comic scenes." Connolly.
