Chamber Music
London: Elkin Mathews,, 1907. Small octavo. Original green cloth, spine and front cover lettered in gilt. Illustrated title page. Spine faded, minor rubbing to extremities, faint mark to fore edge of front free endpaper, half-title, title page and A3, short closed tears to lower outer corners of pp. B4-C3, light foxing to endpapers; a very good, extremely bright copy. First edition, first impression, first issue, with laid paper endpapers with horizontal chain lines and correctly centred text of signature C. Elkin Mathews printed 509 copies of Chamber Music, Joyce's first commercially published work, and pessimistically bound up only a small proportion of the sheets. Bernard Quaritch Ltd argued that only "fifty or a hundred" copies of the first variant were bound in 1907 (New Series: Bulletin 19, 1984). In the wake of Joyce's later fame the remainder sheets were reissued in darker green cloth. This true first issue is uncommon.
