Paris: Shakespeare and Company,, 1922. Small quarto. Original blue wrappers, titles to cover in white. An unusually bright and fresh copy, with slight marks to spine panel and rear wrapper, tiny closed tear to wrappers at foot of spine but entirely sound, a little rubbing to tips of wrappers and spine, light crease to front wrapper and first few pages. A beautiful, unopened copy of this notoriously vulnerable production, unsophisticated and unusually bright and fresh. First edition, first printing, number 724 of 750 copies printed on vergé à barbes stock, from a total edition of 1,000 copies. Ulysses was published in imitation of the traditional three-tiered French format aimed at both connoisseurs and readers: 100 copies were printed on Dutch handmade paper and signed by Joyce; 150 large paper copies were printed on heavier vergé d'Arches, and the remaining 750 copies formed this slightly smaller format trade issue. Laid-in is a typed note signed from literary editor Burton Rascoe, on New York Herald Tribune headed paper and dated 10 October 1922, to Russell Loines, the American literary patron: "Lewis Galantière, in Paris, has sent to me a copy of 'Ulysses' to be forwarded to you. There is danger in sending it through the mails ... Please direct me". Galantière "represented the International Chamber of Commerce in Paris from 1920 till 1927, where his literary interests brought him into contact with a wide array of expatriate writers".
