Description
Signed; James Joyce - Ulysses - 1934
Commemorative editions, Memorabilia - Quantity: 1 - Signed by author - Book

Offered here is signed Modern Library First Edition of James Joyce's "Ulysses", published by Random House (New York), 1934. It was the first authorised U.S. edition, published after the decision in "United States v. One Book Called Ulysses" finding that the book was not obscene. The book has been autographed by Joyce in black ink to the title page. The ink has faded slightly but is still fully legible. The book comes with a COA from Keynote Memorabilia guaranteeing the authenticity of the autograph.

Ulysses was first serialized in parts in the American journal "The Little Review" from March 1918 to December 1920 and then published in its entirety in Paris by Sylvia Beach on 2 February 1922, Joyce's 40th birthday. It is considered one of the most important works of modernist literature and one of the greatest literary works in history. Any version of Ulysses autographed by Joyce is considered extremely desirable.
