Notes

First edition, first impression, large paper issue. This is copy 45 of 96 numbered copies printed on Verge d'Arches. This early critique of Joyce's final work was published some 10 years prior to the publication of the finished novel. Part of the incentive to publish was apparently to raise funds for the perennially impecunious Joyce. A myth surrounding this work is that one or both of the two letters of protest were written by Joyce himself. However both authors existed - indeed Beach herself commissioned Slingsby. Dixon's effort - which is marvellous - was an unsolicited one by a Russian émigré who was to die in Paris in 1929, just as the book was published.
