About This Item

New York:: The Limited Editions Club,, 1935.. No. 1142 of 1500 copies; signed by Henri Matisse in pencil and by James Joyce in ink.. publisher's embossed gilt cloth in publisher's slipcase.. Very slight tanning of (inner) hinges; but just about a fine copy. The fragile hinges are fine, which is unusual for this book. The publisher's box has a little bit of wear to the fore-edges and extremities, but is clean, tight and strong. . Folio,. Illustrations by Henri Matisse.. With an Introduction by Stuart Gilbert. Laid in is the publisher's four-page prospectus and postcard announcement for this book, plus an additional postcard announcement of shipment addressed to its first owner, in which the purchaser is informed that she was one of the fortunate Limited Editions Club members who are being shipped a copy signed by both Matisse and Joyce. The postcard goes on to describe how the Club tried to handle the imbalance between the number of members who wanted the Joyce signatures and the number of copies Joyce agreed to sign. We have never seen another copy of this postcard.
