A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.

JOYCE, James.

London: Egoist Press,, 1916. Octavo. Original green cloth, recased with original spine laid down, titles in blind to front board and to spine gilt. Housed in a custom green cloth slipcase. A little wear to top edge of rear cover, hinges repaired, short closed tear to head of pp. 117-20. A very good copy. First edition, English issue from American sheets. A rare presentation copy with the exceptionally early authorial inscription to the front free endpaper, "To Edmund Brauchbar James Joyce Zurich, Switzerland, 12/iii/[1]917". A superb association: Edmund Brauchbar formed a long-lasting friendship with Joyce and has been proposed as a partial model for Leopold Bloom. He was one of a number of assimilated Jews who became Joyce's patrons in Zurich by taking English lessons with him, and from whom in turn Joyce sought information about Judaism. In 1939 Joyce tried to get Brauchbar's cousin out of Nazi Europe into America, and there is evidence to suggest that the publisher Benjamin Huebsch, Brauchbar, and Joyce were all involved in a kind of underground operation to help several Jews escape to America, Ireland, and Australia. When in 1940 Joyce and his family were allowed entry to neutral Switzerland, part of the exorbitant financial guarantee demanded was deposited on his behalf by Brauchbar. Joyce's first novel was published in America by Huebsch from whom Harriet Shaw Weaver, the proprietor of the Egoist Press, purchased "not more than 750" sets of sheets, issuing them here a year before her own UK printing of 1917. From the library of writer, editor, and Joyce collector Alexander Neubauer, with his bookplate to the inside of the folding case.

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.

JOYCE, James.

London: Egoist Press,, 1917. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to upper board in blind and to spine gilt. Housed in a dark green quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Contents browned, spine cocked and severely sunned. Very good. So-called second edition; the first edition to be printed in the UK. This edition was preceded by the English issue of the Huebsch edition of 1916. With the author's signed presentation inscription to the half title page, "To George and Mary Slocombe James Joyce Paris 7. i. 926"; George Slocombe was an English journalist writing for the American papers. He also wrote a book called The Heart of France - Parisian, provincial & peasant, etc (1934). He reviewed Ulysses when it came out, and he is listed by Joyce as one of the select recipients of a press copy. Joyce's inscription usually appears on the front free endpaper; in this copy, however, that space is occupied by the inscription of the book's first owner, Allan Ross Macdougall, an American in Paris, friend and later biographer of Isadora Duncan. Presentation copies of this printing are rare and examples with such interesting Parisian provenance are exceptional in all regards.

A PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST AS A YOUNG MAN

Joyce, James

New York: B. W. Huebsch, 1916. Medium blue cloth, lettered in gilt and blind. Top edge slightly dust darkened, trivial rubbing at crown and toe of spine, but a very near fine copy, in a fragment of the very scarce printed dust jacket. First edition. Although serialized in 25 installments in THE EGOIST from Feb. 1914 to Sept. 1915, British printers and publishers, then still reeling from the suppression of Lawrence's THE RAINBOW, were unreceptive in their responses to Joyce's efforts toward publication in book form. Based in part on Harriet Weaver's guarantee of 750 sets of sheets for the slightly later Egoist Press issue, Huebsch took on the novel for December publication. The size of the first printing may have been reasonably conservative, and a second printing was called for in April 1917. The printed dust jacket for this book is rather scarce; the present fragment consists of the rear flap (blank), the rear panel (an advert for the Huebsch edition of THE PRUSSIAN OFFICER - wanting two significant chips in the blank area), and a portion of the spine (with "AR / AS / YOUNG MAN / JOYCE / $1.50 net" intact). " ... the Portrait can be read as either an autobiography or a novel. A landmark in sensibility, the prose moves forward in complexity from the child's sensations at the beginning to the adolescent subtleties at the end" - Connolly. SLOCUM & CAHOON A11. CONNOLLY MODERN MOVEMENT 26.

JOYCE, James.

New York: B. W. Huebsch,, 1916. Octavo. Original blue cloth, gilt lettered spine, blind lettered front cover. Housed in a burgundy quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Neat book label of "Alice B. Egan, Medford, Oregon". Spine slightly rolled, a couple of small pale marks on front cover, a few leaves very slightly creased at head. Still a fine bright copy. First edition, first printing. Due at least in part to the hostile reaction to its serialization in The Egoist, no English printer would print the book for fear of prosecution under the obscenity laws. It was Huebsch who undertook the true first publication in book form, on 29 December 1916. He reserved from his print run about 750 sets of sheets for issue in the UK the following February. Although the number of copies originally issued in America is unknown, it is unlikely to have been large since Huebsch had sold out by March 1917 and called for a second printing by April.

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

Joyce, James

New York: Huebsch, 1916 First edition, first printing. Original publisher's blue cloth, blind-stamped front cover and gilt spine. A tight and clean copy with some rubbing to edges and spine ends, and some toning to spine. Internally fine and free of any marks, writing or bookplates. A very good copy of the author's first novel. Housed in a custom folding case. Slocum & Cahoon A11. A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is Joyce's first novel and is virtually a complete rewrite of his abandoned novel, Stephen Hero. The semi-autobiographical text was first published serially in twenty-one monthly installments in the British literary magazine The Egoist from February 1914-September 1915. It was first published in book form in 1916; this copy precedes the first English edition by two months. Partially due to readers' critical reactions, many British publishers initially rejected Portrait, so it was first published in the United States. The plot tells of Stephen Daedalus, whose name alludes to both the Christian martyr Saint Stephen and the Greek mythological inventor Daedalus. It is a Künstlerroman, a subset of the bildungsroman genre, specific to the development of young artists. The novel is written in third-person with the spirit of first-person in Joyce's characteristic style of free indirect speech; Joyce's writing style matures along with Daedalus' own consciousness so that the sophistication of the narrator's voice mirrors the protagonist's level of awareness.. First Edition.. Hardcover. Very Good.

Following close on 'Dubliner's' (for it appeared through 1915 as a serial in 'The Egoist') The Portrait can be read either as an autobiography or a novel. A landmark in sensibility, the prose moves forward in complexity from the child's sensations at the beginning to the adolescent subtleties at the end" (Connolly).

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

Joyce, James

New York: B. W. Huebsch, 1916. First edition. Very Good. A Very Good copy with bright gilt on the spine. Shelfwear to extremities. Front inner hinge tender, but holding. Some offsetting to front endpaper and early ownership signature to front pastedown. Page 16 with slight skinning affecting several lines of text. Joyce's first novel recounts the coming of age story of Stephen Dedalus, the artistic alter-ego of Joyce himself. Stephen grows up ensconced in rigid institutions: the church, school system, family, and national politics. Feeling trapped, Stephen experiences a series of awakenings as he grows older and as a result of these awakenings, Stephen rejects these traditional bulwarks of Irish culture. Instead, he develops an aestheticism that will support his artistic vision. This rejection of existing communities and institutions, alongside his embrace of a new aestheticism, alienates Stephen from what he knows. Facing this alienation, Stephen decides to leave Ireland and pursue his art abroad. A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is an important contribution to literary modernism. One aspect of this innovativeness is Joyce's use of age-appropriate syntax and vocabulary. The beginning of the novel, which starts in Stephen's infancy, is mostly monosyllabic nonsense. As Stephen grows older and grasps more about the world and his place in it, the novel's vocabulary and syntax become correspondingly complex. Of Joyce's first novel, H.G. Wells writes that "It is a mosaic of jagged fragments that does altogether render with extreme completeness the growth of a rather secretive, imaginative boy in Dublin. The technique is startling, but on the whole it succeeds." Very Good.

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.

JOYCE, JAMES.

London: The Egoist Press, [1921]. THIRD ENGLISH EDITION. The first printing was 1916 by Huebsch. This was followed by a 1917 Egoist Press edition which used imported sheets from Huebsch (Harriet Shaw Weaver estimated that less than 750 copies were imported). The Egoist Press printed an edition of 1000 copies in 1918, which is the first edition to actually be printed in England. The present book is from an edition of 1000 additional sets of sheets imported from Huebsch. When the Egoist inventory was sold to Jonathan Cape in 1924 there were 130 copies of this edition still remaining unsold, making the 1921 Egoist edition only 870 copies. This copy shows some rubbing and light edge wear. A very good copy.
