Wear along the hinges, two small chips at the tail of the spine, and a tape repair inside the front flap of the front cover fold. Overall an appealing copy in a custom box.

This copy belonged to John Hayward with his ink signature on the front flyleaf. "For eleven years, from 1946 to 1957 (Hayward) shared a house with his close friend ... T.S.Eliot, gathering and archiving Eliot's papers." He compiled and edited Eliot's Poems Written in Earyl Youth. During this period he thought of himself as "The Keeper of the Eliot Archive."

First English Edition

(Printed in France)

89610. JOYCE, James. ULYSSES. Paris: Published for the Egoist Press, London, by John Rodker, 1922. First English edition (printed in France): Limited to 2000 numbered copies on handmade paper; copy number 1506. Small 4to, [xii],736 pp (plus vi pages of bound in extranious sheets). boards, printed from the plates of the original edition, bound in black leather-covered boards.

This plain black binding was fairly common, replacing or hiding the original blue wrappers. It bears no title, in order to avoid detection by customs agents when the book was brought into the United States, often by individual travelers on the return from abroad.

A very good copy that shows some abrasion begining along the front edge of the rear board, some light wear along the extremes. The original blue paper wrappers with 'ULYSSES | BY | JAMES JOYCE' printed in white on front cover as well as the rear wrapper are preserved within the book. The front wrapper is creased with a little wear, fading and spotting; text is clean with a little spotting along the front edge and preliminary pages. (Slocum & Cahoon 18).
