Collected Poems.
Black Sun Press 1936 - New York: Black Sun Press, 1936. First Edition. Sepia Portrait frontispiece by Augustus John, printed in blue throughout, original gilt decorated boards in original glassine protective wrapper, gilt slipcase, silk ribbon bookmark. Small 8vo. Limited edition number 2 of 50 copies on Japan Vellum, Signed by James Joyce on frontispiece. A fine copy. Joyce was initially ambivalent concerning Augustus John’s Portrait of him but when the drawings was reproduced in the Joyce Book he conceded : Praise from a purblind penny poet would be ridiculous but your drawing is clearly the one thing in the volume which is indissentable. I wish I could see the lines better myself. [Slocum & Cahoon A44] [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
