About This Item

London: Grant Richards, 1914. First Edition. Fine. First edition, first printing. Bound in publisher's original red cloth lettered in gilt; lacking the dust jacket. A Fine and bright copy, with gilt still sharp. Cloth with light touches of wear, faint water-spot near foot of spine extending to rear cover, trivial rubbing to rear joint. Spine ends softened. First and final blank sheet offset. A superlative copy of a book normally found much worse for wear, and by far the nicest copy on the market at the time of cataloguing. One of a mere 746 copies in the first issue bound by Grant Richards and issued in London in 1914, from a total of 1,250 sheets. The remaining 504 sheets were sent to Huebsch in New York, but not issued until late 1916.

Synopsis

Dubliners is a collection of 15 short stories by James Joyce, first published in 1914. The fifteen stories were meant to be a naturalistic depiction of the Irish middle class life in and around Dublin in the early years of the 20th century. The stories were written at the time when Irish nationalism was at its peak, and a search for a national identity and purpose was raging; at a crossroads of history and culture, Ireland was jolted by various converging ideas and influences.
