Notes

First edition, first impression. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on half-title, "To Jacques Benoist-Méchin James Joyce 3. xi. 1921 Paris". Benoist-Méchin was the writer and academic who is credited as the first translator of any part of Ulysses. He was a patron of the Shakespeare and Company bookshop and during the Second World War used his connections to secure the release of Sylvia Beach from a spell of internment. He befriended James Joyce and made an early French translation of Molly Bloom's monologue from Ulysses, and also provided the musical transcription of "Little Harry Hughes" photographed for episode 17.
