Signed Ulysses for Sale

(alternate text)

I’ve recently been re-reading Joyce’s Ulysses so this item caught my eye while I was trawling eBay looking for toast burnt by the stigmata and Britney Spears’ bra… First edition, 11th printing May 1930, the last printing of the legendary first edition of Ulysses, published by Shakespeare & Company. Joyce’s signature is laid in on a separate sheet of paper. Looks pretty cool although I’m a little bit sketched out by the fact that this same seller has a Catcher in the Rye that also contains a laid-in slip of paper with Salinger’s signature and a Steinbeck with signed slip of paper. Oh well, they’ve got near perfect feedback so what do I know?

If you’ve got about two grand, this could be a grand addition to your Joyce collection.
