Notes

First edition, first printing, number 164 of 150 large paper copies numbered between 101 and 250. Ulysses was published in imitation of the traditional three-tiered French format aimed at both connoisseurs and readers: 100 copies were printed on Dutch handmade paper and signed by Joyce; 150 copies were printed on heavier vergé d'Arches to create this large paper format; and the remaining 750 copies formed a small format trade issue, printed on less expensive vergé à barbes stock. With its generous margins, the large paper issue is the most aesthetically pleasing of the three.
