In early late 1916, Grant Richards sold 504 remaining sets of sheets of the first printing of Dubliners (the total printing comprised 1250 sets of sheets) to B. W. Huebsch of New York for an American edition. Thus this copy is one of only 504 copies issued from the English sheets.

The fifteen short stories that comprise Dubliners are presented in a variety of narrative styles. The first three stories are narrated by first-person child protagonists, while the remaining twelve are written in the third person and deal with the lives of progressively older people. Many of the characters in Dubliners appear in minor roles in Ulysses.
