Portrait de l'Artiste Jeune par Lui-meme. Translated by Ludmila Savitzky.
First French edition of A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. With the translator’s signed presentation inscription to the first blank leaf. The name of the recipient has been excised and the inscription partially obscured by a one-page autograph letter from Joyce written in French on the back of one of the advertisement leaves which were laid into the book at publication. Again the name of the recipient has been excised. Joyce first gives details of his new address, then proceeds to present this copy. He mentions critics and gives some information regarding Ludmila Savitzky’s movements.
Octavo. Original white wrappers printed in green and black. Housed in a green quarter morocco solander box by The Chelsea Bindery. Contents browned as always but an excellent copy.
