Publication: Paris: Shakespeare and Company, 1926.
Description: 8vo. (210 x 160mm), pp.[xii], 735, [v]. Clean and bright internally. Original blue paper publisher’s wrappers, edges uncut. Upper joint wholly split, so upper cover only attached where it folds around the edges of the first gathering. A bit cocked, spine worn and chipped with some surface peeling, edges tattered with numerous small closed tears and upper fore-edge splitting.
There have been at least 18 editions of Ulysses, each with variations in different impressions. Here we find the eighth printing of the first edition, with the ‘type entirely re-set’, so de facto the second edition. An uncommon find in its original paper wrappers.
