A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.
First edition, English issue from American sheets, published 12 February 1917. 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 March 1918.
Octavo. Original green cloth, titles in blind to upper board and to spine gilt. Neat ownership inscription to the verso of the half title, nick to the edge of the same leaf, tips with a trace of rubbing but a superb copy.
