Paris: Shakespeare and Company, 1929.
Softcover. First edition. With letters of protest by G.V.L. Slingsby and Vladimir Dixon. Small quarto. Self-wrappers as issued. Small tape remnant near the base of the spine, a very good or better copy housed in a half morocco clamshell case. Embossed stamp of the American novelist John Sanford, as well as his ownership signature using his given name (Julian Shapiro). Contributors include Samuel Beckett, Marcel Brion, Frank Budgen, Stuart Gilbert, Eugene Jolas, Victor Llona, Robert McAlmon, Thomas McGreevy, Elliot Paul, John Rodker, Robert Sage, and William Carlos Williams. Beckett's contribution is his first appearance in print. A tribute to James Joyce that also contains brief quotations from *Work in Progress*, including text which was not later incorporated into *Finnegans Wake*. The "Letters of Protest" are reputed to have been written by Joyce himself. A very nice copy.
