The first printing of Joyce's first novel (third publication, after "Chamber Music" and "Dubliners").

"Stephen Dedalus describes his spiritual journey through his Jesuit education and petty bourgeois Dublin to forge through 'silence, exile and cunning' the 'uncreated conscience of his race'." - from Connolly, p. 33.

A tad smoky, a few faint white spots to spine, discolouration to spine cloth, a couple small red spots to front board (below "P" in Portrait in first line, just above "as" in second line), some rubbing to outer hinges (inner hinges are still tight), else a very good copy, intern ally clean without a single foxed spot, marking, or marginal smudge. For this reason, this may be an Ideal Copy For a Fancy Rebind. 3,000.00
