Description

First edition of Joyce’s first novel, a semi-autobiographical work. Original blue cloth covered boards. Custom clamshell case. Published first by Huebsch in 1916, the first British edition followed in 1917 published by Egoist Press. Minor bumps, rubbing at front top left corner, light fading of navy boards, gilt worn from spine.

James Joyce’s first published novel, it appeared in serial form in The Egoist from February 1914 to September 1915. Joyce began the work in 1904, and it went through a series of radical changes before publication in 1916. Huebsch was the only publisher daring enough to publish Joyce‘s novel unexpurgated in 1916. In England, it was rejected by twelve publishers, and the English edition was not published until 1917.
