A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.

JOYCE, James.

London: Egoist Press,, 1916. Octavo. Original green cloth, recased with original spine laid down, titles in blind to front board and to spine gilt. Housed in a custom green cloth slipcase. A little wear to top edge of rear cover, hinges repaired, short closed tear to head of pp. 117-20. A very good copy. First edition, English issue from American sheets. A rare presentation copy with the exceptionally early authorial inscription to the front free endpaper, "To Edmund Brauchbar James Joyce Zurich, Switzerland, 12/iii/[1]917". A superb association: Edmund Brauchbar formed a long-lasting friendship with Joyce and has been proposed as a partial model for Leopold Bloom. He was one of a number of assimilated Jews who became Joyce's patrons in Zurich by taking English lessons with him, and from whom in turn Joyce sought information about Judaism. In 1939 Joyce tried to get Brauchbar's cousin out of Nazi Europe into America, and there is evidence to suggest that the publisher Benjamin Huebsch, Brauchbar, and Joyce were all involved in a kind of underground operation to help several Jews escape to America, Ireland, and Australia. When in 1940 Joyce and his family were allowed entry to neutral Switzerland, part of the exorbitant financial guarantee demanded was deposited on his behalf by Brauchbar. Joyce's first novel was published in America by Huebsch from whom Harriet Shaw Weaver, the proprietor of the Egoist Press, purchased "not more than 750" sets of sheets, issuing them here a year before her own UK printing of 1917. From the library of writer, editor, and Joyce collector Alexander Neubauer, with his bookplate to the inside of the folding case.

JOYCE, James.

London: Egoist Press,, 1917. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to upper board in blind and to spine gilt. Housed in a dark green quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Contents browned, spine cocked and severely sunned. Very good. So-called second edition; the first edition to be printed in the UK. This edition was preceded by the English issue of the Huebsch edition of 1916. With the author's signed presentation inscription to the half title page, "To George and Mary Slocombe James Joyce Paris 7. i. 926"; George Slocombe was an English journalist writing for the American papers. He also wrote a book called The Heart of France - Parisian, provincial & peasant, etc (1934). He reviewed Ulysses when it came out, and he is listed by Joyce as one of the select recipients of a press copy. Joyce's inscription usually appears on the front free endpaper; in this copy, however, that space is occupied by the inscription of the book's first owner, Allan Ross Macdougall, an American in Paris, friend and later biographer of Isadora Duncan. Presentation copies of this printing are rare and examples with such interesting Parisian provenance are exceptional in all regards.

A PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST AS A YOUNG MAN

Joyce, James

New York: B. W. Huebsch, 1916. Medium blue cloth, lettered in gilt and blind. Top edge slightly dust darkened, trivial rubbing at crown and toe of spine, but a very near fine copy, in a fragment of the very scarce printed dust jacket. First edition. Although serialized in 25 installments in THE EGOIST from Feb. 1914 to Sept. 1915, British printers and publishers, then still reeling from the suppression of Lawrence's THE RAINBOW, were unreceptive in their responses to Joyce's efforts toward publication in book form. Based in part on Harriet Weaver's guarantee of 750 sets of sheets for the slightly later Egoist Press issue, Huebsch took on the novel for December publication. The size of the first printing may have been reasonably conservative, and a second printing was called for in April 1917. The printed dust jacket for this book is rather scarce; the present fragment consists of the rear flap (blank), the rear panel (an advert for the Huebsch edition of THE PRUSSIAN OFFICER - wanting two significant chips in the blank area), and a portion of the spine (with "AR / AS / YOUNG MAN / JOYCE / $1.50 net" intact). " ... the Portrait can be read as either an autobiography or a novel. A landmark in sensibility, the prose moves forward in complexity from the child's sensations at the beginning to the adolescent subtleties at the end" - Connolly. SLOCUM & CAHOON A11.

JOYCE, James.

New York: B. W. Huebsch,, 1916. Octavo. Original blue cloth, gilt lettered spine, blind lettered front cover. Housed in a burgundy quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Neat book label of "Alice B. Egan, Medford, Oregon". Spine slightly rolled, a couple of small pale marks on front cover, a few leaves very slightly creased at head. Still a fine bright copy. First edition, first printing. Due at least in part to the hostile reaction to its serialization in The Egoist, no English printer would print the book for fear of prosecution under the obscenity laws. It was Huebsch who undertook the true first publication in book form, on 29 December 1916. He reserved from his print run about 750 sets of sheets for issue in the UK the following February. Although the number of copies originally issued in America is unknown, it is unlikely to have been large since Huebsch had sold out by March 1917 and called for a second printing by April.

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.

JOYCE, James

New York: B. W. Huebsch, 1916. 8vo, blue publisher's cloth with lettering in blind to upper cover and lettering in gilt to spine; pp. [iv], 299, [i]; cloth a little rubbed at edges and corners, and particularly to head and foot of spine; internal front hinge tender; else a very good copy, internally very clean. First edition. Originally appearing serially in twenty-one monthly instalments in the British literary magazine The Egoist, Joyce’s semi-autobiographical text was first published in the US, after UK printers refused to accept the liability of printing the text due to reader’s critical reactions. The exact number of copies is unknown, but it is estimated that fewer than one thousand were produced. This copy precedes the first English edition by two months. The stream-of-consciousness narrative describes the protagonist Stephen Dedalus’ spiritual journey through his Jesuit education to adulthood. Joyce had originally intended the novel to be published under the title Stephen Hero , but abandoned the work in 1907 when it was half finished, to begin a complete revision of the text and its structure. In 1911 Joyce flew into a fit of rage over the continued refusals by publishers to print Dubliners and threw the manuscript of Portrait into the fire. It was saved by a "family fire brigade" including his sister Eileen. In 1917 H. G. Wells wrote that "one believes in Stephen Dedalus as one believes in few characters in fiction." A sound copy of the author’s first novel.

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

Joyce, James

NY: B. W. Huebsch, 1916. First printing of the author's first novel and third book, certainly considered one of the seminal books of the modernist movement in literature. Very good in the original blue cloth with the title and author's name blind-stamped on the front board. Gilt lettering on the spine is slightly dulled, but very legible. There is some rubbing to the cloth at the spine ends, with tiny spots of fraying in a few places. Clear evidence of a bookplate removal on the front pastedown, and evidence of the erasure of a single line which had been embossed on the copyright page. There is also a quarter-sized area at the lower left corner of the rear pastedown where the top layer of paper has been pulled away. Very small cracks in the endpapers covering both front and rear hinges, but the binding is tight and square. The bookplate removal and erasure of the small embossed line could indicate the book was in some sort of private library at one time, but the condition indicates not much use over the years. The book was purchased from the estate of a professor of English at the University of Tulsa (which has one of the largest Joyce collections in the world), and whether he undertook the improvements himself, or purchased the book in this condition is unknown.. First Edition. Hard Cover.
