James Joyce
Ulysses, James Joyce, first English Edition, Egoist Press, 1922
Ulysses, James Joyce, first English edition, Egoist Press, 1922. Printed on handmade paper for the Egoist Press by John Rodker, 1922, in a limited edition of 2000 copies; this is number 1943. Printed in the same year as the first Shakespeare & Co edition (Paris). Handsomely rebound in buckram cloth in a hue that closely echoes the original wraps, bound within. The original wraps are in very good condition, with just a few closed edge tears. No interior writing on the pages of the book. The handmade paper quality of this publication is far superior to the later Shakespeare & Co printings which harden, tone, flake and crumble at the faintest breath. This copy is typical of the Egoist Press production on handmade paper which is soft, silken and resilient to the effects of time. Further photographs and information regarding this book can be provided upon request.
