“A man of genius makes no mistakes. His errors are volitional and are the portals of discovery.” “Every life is in many days, day after day. We walk through ourselves, meeting robbers, ghosts, giants, old men, young men, wives, widows, brothers-in-love, but always meeting ourselves.”
The author's most famous (and indeed collectable) work and a true tour de force of modern literature - It is now recognised as one of the key works of the twentieth century and the defining work of the modernist movement. The first printing of Ulysses consisted of only 1000 copies to be sold by subscription.
A fine first edition, fresh and crisp, with just a trace of wear to a couple of corners and spine ends. Internally unimpeachable, with a contemporary pencil name and discreet bookplate to inside front wrapper. A stunning example and exceedignly rare in such condition.
