""Rarely if ever in literary history has a handful of stories aroused so much discussion, controversy, praise, denunciation, mystification and interpretation"" (New York Times). This rare uncorrected advance proof—clearly derived from the printer's galleys and likely produced in very small numbers—is particularly desirable given the textual changes upon publication.

The Little Review in Chicago then began publishing chapters, promptly leading to the prosecution of its editors, Margaret Anderson and Jane Heap, on charges of obscenity. Upon hearing of this from Joyce himself, Sylvia Beach offered to publish the work through her Parisian bookstore, Shakespeare and Company.
