Finnegans Wake

By Joyce, James

Finnegans Wake is a work of comic fiction by Irish author James Joyce, significant for an experimental style and its resulting reputation as one of the most difficult works of fiction in the English language. Written in Paris over a period of 17 years, and published in 1939, two years before the author's death, Finnegans Wake was Joyce's final work. -

First Edition Identification and Notes

Faber and Faber in London and Viking Press in New York simultaneously published Finnegans Wake in May 1939. True first editions are bound in yellow cloth with a red spine. The novel was published with a limited print run of just 500 numbered copies signed by Joyce. First editions have sold for upwards of $20,000. 

Other Collectible or Notable Editions

In 2014, Folio Society published a new illustrated edition of Finnegans Wake with twelve collages and an insightful introduction by artist John Vernon Lord.
