Notes

First edition, first printing. Presentation copy, inscribed by Sylvia Beach on the front free endpaper, "Souvenir of Playboy for Mrs Cummins, from Sylvia Beach". The book was created as a companion to an exhibition held between 11 March and 25 April 1959 on the "Lost Generation" of expatriate American writers and artists who gathered at Sylvia Beach's legendary bookshop, Shakespeare and Company in Paris. The French writer Andre Chamson wrote, "Sylvia carried pollen like a bee. She cross-fertilized these writersShe did more to link England, the United States, Ireland, and France than four great ambassadors combined. It was not merely for the pleasure of friendship that Joyce, Hemingway, Bryher, and so many others often took the path to Shakespeare and Company in the heart of Paris."
