Near Fine with sunning to spine and light rubbing to spine ends, bookplate to front paste down, light foxing to preliminary and terminal pages, pages lightly toned.

A lovely copy of this modernist cornerstone.

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.
