Description:
London: The Egoist Ltd, London,, 1916. Inscribed to his fellow author Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine in gilt and in blind to front cover. Custom brown morocco-backed slipcase, black morocco labels; with chemises for book and accompanying material (see below). Small area of surface rubbing at centre of front cover, gilt lettering a little faded as often, front inner hinge with superficial crack discreetly refurbished but holding firm. An excellent copy, unusually fresh for an inscribed Joyce. First edition, UK issue. Inscribed on the front free endpaper to Frederick Britten Austin, with Austin's note "signed for me F. Britten Austin" followed, in Joyce's hand, "by James Joyce Paris 1.1.39". The English writer Austin (1885-1941) published various short story collections, chiefly on military, maritime, and supernatural themes. Austin was a friend of Stuart Gilbert (1883-1969), who had befriended Joyce when offering his help with the French rendering of Ulysses, and who subsequently… Read more

Description:
Paris: Shakespeare & Company, 1922. First edition, one of 750 numbered copies on handmade paper from a total edition of 1000 copies, this is number 992. Thick quarto, original blue and white wrappers. A near fine example, internally fresh and largely unopened, completely unrestored. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. This example contains the original prospectus with the tipped-on reproduction of the 1918 photo of Joyce by C. Ruf. The front panel of the prospectus has been amended, as often, to indicate the book "is now ready," and the original buyer must have jumped at the opportunity, as the order panel of the prospectus has been neatly cut away. Sisley Huddleston's 5 March 1922 review from The Observer is also laid in (though both items are in prophylactic sleeves that have prevented any offsetting). Also laid into the slipcase is some correspondence relating to the sale of this copy in 1972 by Duschnes in New York City. An exceptional example with noted provenance. Ulysses was… Read more

Description:
New York: B.W. Huebsch, 1916. First Edition; preceding the English edition, issued from the American sheets, by two months. A very nearly fine copy in the rare dust jacket, which has minor wear but numerous spots; overall very good; in a half-leather clamshell box. English printers, loathe to accept liability in risking legal action on moral grounds, refused to print the book. The exact number of copies bound is not known, but evidence strongly suggests that fewer than a thousand copies were produced. Slocum and Cahoon (A Bibliography of James Joyce, Yale, 1953) point out that the original printing plates were used in subsequent printings by Huebsch and the Modern Library, and that, by 1953 there were nearly 100,000 copies in print. By anyone’s estimation, A Portrait of the Artist is among Joyce’s most important works, and therefore, by definition, a highly significant book in modern literature. Connolly 100 (The Modern Movement) “...the Portrait can be read as either an autobiography or a… Read more

Description:
New York: B. W. Huebsch,, 1916. With the very rare dust jacket Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt, front cover lettered in blind. With the dust jacket. Housed in a custom blue quarter morocco slipcase and chemise. Neat contemporary ownership signature to front pastedown, bookseller's ticket (Gotham Book Mart) to rear pastedown. Light rubbing at extremities otherwise a fine copy, bright and tight, in very good, restored jacket, loss to lettering on spine panel though all lettering unaffected on front and rear panels: a creditable example of a particularly rare jacket. First edition in book form, first printing, of Joyce's first novel and the essential prequel to Ulysses, scarce in any state but especially rare retaining the dust jacket. 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… Read more

New York: B.W. Huebsch, 1916. First Edition; preceding the English edition, issued from the American sheets, by two months. A fine copy in the rare dust jacket, which has been restored; overall very good; in a cloth clamshell box. By anyone’s estimation, A Portrait of the Artist is among Joyce’s most important works, and therefore, by definition, a highly significant book in modern literature. Connolly 100 (The Modern Movement) “...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...” Huebsch later merged his house with Viking, where he labored for several decades. He was one of the 20th century’s great publishers, in the company of such courageous and tasteful worthies as Cerf, Knopf, Simon, the sad failure that was Liveright, and others. Generally bending left, Huebsch also published Joyce’s Dubliners, Chamber Music, and… Read more

He reviewed Ulysses when it came out, and he is listed by Joyce as one of the select recipients of a press copy.

Description:
[Pola, Yugoslavia: Privately Printed for the Author, 1905. Quarto broadsheet (288 x 220 mm). Printed in double columns on recto only. Small rust marks in top margin above title, upper left corner slightly creased and dust -shaded, pencil tip-size chip from extreme lower right corner, but a very good copy. First available printing of James Joyce's second separate publication, preceded by the chimerical [ET TU, HEALY!], privately printed for Joyce's father in 1891 or 1892, of which no copies are known. According to Stanislaus Joyce, his brother commissioned a broadside printing of this poem in Dublin, but due to a shortage of funds was unable to take possession of the edition. It was presumably destroyed by the printer as no copy of that printing has been traced. Because of an "insolent" letter he received from the printer about the matter, when he had the funds Joyce elected to have this fresh printing made in Pola, where he was resident from November 1904 through March of the following year.

Description:
FIRST EDITION. This is one of 750 numbered copies (of an edition of 1000) of Ulysses, the most sought-after book of 20th-century literature.
Early in 1918, Ezra Pound secured Ulysses, then in progress, for the avant-garde American literary magazine The Little Review. Joyce was delighted to know that his book was being read and talked about, if only in modernist circles, and the serial publication spurred the author on as he tried to keep pace with the magazine's schedule. Several numbers were seized as obscene and burned by the United States Post Office, the obscenity trial beginning on February 14, 1921 resulted in the editors' conviction. The serial publication of Ulysses ceased, and the American publishers who had considered publishing the book abandoned the project. Within weeks Joyce agreed to Sylvia Beach's offer that the first edition appear in Paris under her Shakespeare and Company imprint in 1922.
Just prior to publication, Joyce warned, "The pity is the public will demand and find a moral… Read more

Paris: Shakespeare & Co, 1922. Limited. paperback. very good(-). Thick large 8vo, original blue wrappers printed in white. Paris: Shakespeare & Co., 1922. First edition. From a total printing of 1000, this is one of only 150 large paper copies on verge d'Arches, measuring 10.375 x 8.9375 inches. Housed in a blue half morocco clam-shell case. A large, uncut copy in original wrappers (blue paper is entirely lacking from the spine and with small chips at the joints; faint discoloration on copyright and limitation pages from old paper once laid in; a handful of other pages with brownish spatter). Number 174 of 1000 numbered copies. Although the series of 750 were numbered 251- 1000 they were actually printed first. The series of 100 was done next, and the large format run last. Because of the larger format the printer had to reimpose the forms, which gave Joyce the opportunity to correct one typo, "borad" to "board" on p. 31, l. 10. S & C. A17.

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.

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.
