The only recording ever made of James Joyce reading from Ulysses (about four minutes). From the box cover: "In 1924 I went to the office of His Master's Voice in Paris to ask them if they would record a reading by James Joyce from Ulysses. But they would agree only if it were done at my expense. The record would not have their label on it, not would it be listed in their catalogue. I accepted the terms; thirty copies of the recording to be paid for on delivery." -Sylvia Beach. Still in shrinkwrap, 45:31 recording, partial of course.
