About This Item

NY: Huebsch, 1917. Hardcover. Good+. Stated 2nd printing, good plus, no dj. Spine ends rubbed and faded; spine a little darkened. Small armorial bookplate on front pastedown; blind-stamped owner's name (in Gothic script) on ffep; odd spot that looks like foxing on the half-title, though there is no other foxing. Occasional margin notes in pencil; also the rear endpapers are filled with notes. On the rear pastedown the owner claims to have met Joyce in Paris in 1929, introduced by agent Madeleine Boyd (the discoverer of Thomas Wolfe). "He was almost blind, talked to his daughter in Italian, recited some of the "Work In Progress" later called Finnegan's Wake + then had records of it played while he dozed off to sleep." 299 pp.
