Les lauriers sont coupés
Paris: Libraire de la Revue Indépendant,, 1888. Octavo. Original cream wrappers, titles to spine and front cover black, pages partly unopened. Portrait frontispiece with tissue guard by Jacques E. Blanche. Wrappers slightly creased, front hinge starting, contents lightly toned. An excellent copy. First edition, limited issue. Number 156 of 420 copies, of which 400 were printed on vélin anglais mécanique, and 20 on grand vélin français. The story was first published the preceding year in the magazine Revue Indépendante. An influential work, exemplifying the proto-stream-of-consciousness narrative; James Joyce Joyce mentioned in 1922 to Valery Larbaud, his translator, that it had been his inspiration for Ulysses.
