ULYSSES
[Paris], Tokyo: [Shakespeare and Company ], Yushodo/Inkpen Press, [1922], 2004. A very finely produced facsimile of the first edition of Ulysses, LIMITED to 120 copies. The facsimile is printed on fine paper by the Inkpen Press. Large thick 8vo [195 x 235 mm], beautifully hand-bound in full crushed blue morocco, the spine handsomely lettered in gilt, housed in a blue moire cloth slipcase. (10), 732, (2) pp. A mint, pristine and superb copy. A BEAUTIFULLY PRODUCED FACSIMILE OF THE FIRST EDITION OF JAMES JOYCE’S ULYSSES, the most important novel of the twentieth century . The true first edition of this book is now beyond the range of all but a very small handful of collectors, this facsimile provides the opportunity to own this important and handsome work in a format, and with the feel, of the first edition. ULYSSES can be viewed as the pinnacle of the Modernist movement, and its impact on all subsequent western literature is unmistakable. Such writers as Virginia Woolf, John Dos Passos, William Faulkner, Samuel Beckett, Malcolm Lowry, and Anthony Burgess have all paid tribute, consciously or unconsciously, to Joyce's influence. Burgess as well pronounced it the greatest single work in the English literature of this century, and he is not alone in that opinion. According to James Spoerri, "This fortunate combination of printer and publisher resulted in the appearance of ULYSSES as a book whose physical aspect is particularly suited to its content. It is a fat and inviting volume, the blue and white of its covers subtly evocative of the Greece whose epic it so closely parallels" (quoted in the catalogue for the Garden Sale, Sotheby's 1989). While this facsimile is of course not the true first edition, the physical attributes are the same.
