Joyce's inspiration for Ulysses, in the original wrappers

First edition, limited issue. Number 156 of 420 copies, of which 400 were printed on vélin anglais mécanique, and 20 on grand vélin français. The story was first published the preceding year in the magazine Revue Indépendante. An influential work, exemplifying the proto-stream-of-consciousness narrative; James Joyce mentioned in 1922 to Valery Larbaud, his translator, that it had been his inspiration for Ulysses.
