Width: 9" Height: 11.25" a crisp fine copy in slipcase [mint]. "#228 of 1000 copies, signed by both Flanagan and Ballagh on the colophon page. 6 photogravures . Dubliners" is a collection of 15 short stories by James Joyce, first published in 1914. They were meant to be a naturalistic depiction of Irish middle class life in and around Dublin in the early years of the 20th century. The stories were written when Irish nationalism was at its peak, and a search for a national identity and purpose was raging; at a crossroads of history and culture, Ireland was jolted by various converging ideas and influences. They centre on Joyce's idea of an epiphany: a moment where a character experiences self-understanding or illumination. Many of the characters in "Dubliners" later appear in minor roles in Joyce's novel "Ulysses." The initial stories in the collection are narrated by child protagonists, and as the stories continue, they deal with the lives and concerns of progressively older people. This is in line with Joyce's tripartite division of the collection into childhood, adolescence, and maturity. Condition / Notes: This is a scarce limited edition of this collection of stories by Irish writer James Joyce, signed in ink by Thomas Flanagan and pencil signed by illustrator Robert Ballagh on the colophon page. This is number 228 of 1000. This volume is bound in quarter green leather and Irish hankerchief linen, with bright gilt lettering to spine. Volume is in excellent condition. This book contains an introduction by Thomas Flanagan and 6 photogravures by Robert Ballagh printed on handmade paper. This edition was printed at Wild Carrot Letterpress and Heritage Printers. The text has been set in Monotype Scotch by Dan Carr and Julia Ferrarie at Golgonooza Letter Foundry. The design is by Benjamin Shiff. The photogravure plates were made by Jon Goodman, and editioned by Bruce Chandler, Peter Pettengill, Catherine Mosley and Greta Lintvedt. The paper was made at Cartiere Enrico Magnani. Suede-lined linen slipcase shows light shelfwear. Case measures approximately 9.5" x 11.75". Author: James Joyce - James Augustine Aloysius Joyce was an Irish novelist and poet, considered to be one of the most influential writers in the modernist avant-garde of the early 20th century. Joyce is best known for "Ulysses" (1922) , a landmark work in which the episodes of Homer's Odyssey are paralleled in an array of contrasting literary styles, perhaps most prominently the stream of consciousness technique he perfected. Other major works are the short-story collection "Dubliners" (1914) , and the novels "A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man" (1916) and "Finnegans Wake" (1939). His complete oeuvre includes three books of poetry, a play, occasional journalism, and his published letters. Joyce was born to a middle class family in Dublin, where he excelled as a student at the Jesuit schools Clongowes and Belvedere, then at University College Dublin. In his early twenties he emigrated permanently to continental Europe, living in Trieste, Paris and Zurich. Though most of his adult life was spent abroad, Joyce's fictional universe does not extend beyond Dublin, and is populated largely by characters who closely resemble family members, enemies and friends from his time there; "Ulysses" in particular is set with precision in the streets and alleyways of the city. Shortly after the publication of "Ulysses" he elucidated this preoccupation somewhat, saying, "For myself, I always write about Dublin, because if I can get to the heart of Dublin I can get to the heart of all the cities of the world. In the particular is contained the universal." Laid in letter. All laid in tissues protectors present. ; 0 .
