This the first complete Irish edition, handsomely bound. This Danis Rose edition of Ulysses is now known as the ‘illegal’ version after the Joyce estate successfully sued Rose for copyright violation. He used a total of approximately 50 words from manuscripts under their control without proper permission, thus this version will never be reprinted again.
A further of 900 copies were produced, bound in full cloth, numbered and housed in a slipcase.
