    Description

    One of 200 "Exemplaire d'Auteur" Copies of
    the First French Edition of
    Ulysses

    James Joyce. Ulysse. Traduit de l'Anglais par M. Auguste Morel assisté par M. Stuart Gilbert. Traduction entièrement revue par M. Valery Larbaud avec la collaboration de l'auteur. Paris: La Maison de Amis de Livres, 1929. First French edition, one of 170 numbered copies on alfa vergé, out of a total edition of 200 copies of the "Exemplaires d'Auteur Hors-Commerce," this being copy number 11 (the total edition, including "Exemplaires d'Auteur Hors-Commerce" and the various non-Hors-Commerce copies was 1,100). Quarto. [viii], 870, [2] pages. Original printed wrappers and glassine. Some chipping and wear to spine headcap, some toning and rubbing to binding, mild toning to text. Still, an excellent copy of this fragile and bulky title. Despite the many translators of this title, Joyce himself completely revised the French translation, making this version textually significant.
    Slocum and Cahoon, D17. From the collection of Pat and Michael York.
