FIRST ENGLISH EDITION IN A QUARTER CALF BINDING
JOYCE, James ~ A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.
London: Egoist Press, 1917
Quarter calf, 7.25 inches tall. A very pretty binding, almost certainly French, from around the period of publication with raised bands and gilt title and top edge. The paper boards have hints of gold and lilac and red cloth points to the corners. First English edition, bound using the American sheets. The spine is very slightly faded by the sun but still a lovely copy of this scarce edition.
