Description


Signed book: Ulysses. First edition, fourth printing. Paris: Shakespeare and Company, 1924. Hardcover, 6.75 x 8, 736 pages. Neatly signed and inscribed on the first free end page in crisp black ink, “To Edward Irvine Halliday, James Joyce, Paris, 31. iii. 924.” Autographic condition: uniform fragile toning, a few small edge chips, and an inch-long tear to the upper left edge near the spine (in no way affecting the inscription or signature), otherwise fine. Book condition: VG-/None. Edward Irvine Halliday (1902–1984) was a painter and student at the Royal College of Art, attending classes on a travel scholarship at the Academie Colarossi in Paris when Joyce inscribed this copy of Ulysses for him. He was highly regarded for his portraits, portraying many members of the British royal family and foreign dignitaries. As an extremely rare early edition of this iconic work inscribed to a portrait artist as a young man, this is an immensely desirable cornerstone piece.
