Book ID: 57634
Ulysses Serialized in Two Worlds Monthly. Edited by Samuel Roth. 11 Volumes issue. New York: Two Worlds Publishing Company, 1926. Original white and beige wrappers printed in red and black. Overall the issues are in good condition or better with some chipping on edges and spines. Housed in collector’s clamshell box. Samuel Roth’s pirate pirating of Ulysses “resulted in considerable public indignation and provoked the ‘International Protest’ signed by 167 artists and writers and printed in transition I” (Slocum & Cahoon p. 100). Joyce was able to obtain an injunction against Roth, but not until after Two Worlds Monthly had already ceased publication. The set was originally released as 11 individual instalments containing 13 episodes. It was later published as two bound volumes (1927) containing 14 episodes including the final instalment (Vol. III, no. 4) that was never released separately.
