Reserve Ask us a question

First edition, first impression, of this collection of thirteen of Joyce's poems. Beneath each poem the place and year of composition are provided; they range from 1904 to 1924. The first poem, 'Tilly' is named after the Irish custom of providing customers a free extra serving; the book was sold at 12 shillings, so the thirteenth poem came "free".

This copy is accompanied by a typed letter signed from Marguerite A. Cohn of the House of Books in New York, dated 12 August 1963 enclosing the volume.
