Description: JOYCE, JAMES. Ulysses. Thick 4to, original blue wrappers lettered in white, foot of spine rubbed with slight loss, other extremities rubbed, one vertical crease along rear cover near spine; errata laid in. London: John Rodker for the Egoist Press, 1922

Notes: first english edition, unnumbered, unrestored example, one of 2000 copies issued on handmade paper. This is effectively the second impression of the First Edition, printed by Darantiere from the First Edition plates as soon as that edition was exhausted. It was printed for Joyce''s patron Harriet Weaver, who was unable to find a printer in England, and distributed mainly by Rodker and Ezra Pound, working from Paris. At least 500 copies were intercepted by U.S. Customs, and this issue has since become less common than the First Edition. Slocum & Cahoon A18.
