This is the scarce clothbound issue, printed on India paper, of the Odyssey Press edition that is most commonly found in two paperbound volumes. As such, it is actually the first clothbound edition of Ulysses in English, published on thin-paper in an unknown number of copies. The present edition may be regarded as the definitive standard edition, as it has been specially revised, at the author’s request, by Stuart Gilbert. (Slocum and Cahoon A20).
Loosely inserted is the publisher’s four-page brochure advertising the special subscriber only Odyssey Edition, signed by Joyce, printed on hand-made paper & with the name of the individual subscriber.
