Chamber Music. New York: Huebsch, (1923). Second American edition. Black paper boards titled lettered in gilt on upper board, original dust jacket titled in black with photograph of Joyce and short commentary on the contents. A fine copy, scarce in dust jacket. The only Joyce work published in his lifetime with his photograph to the jacket. The first authorized edition was printed by Huebsch in 1918 (preceded by the unauthorized Cornhill edition in the same year). Chamber Music is a collection of poems, published by Elkin Matthews in May 1907. The collection originally comprised 34 love poems, but two further poems were added before publication ("All day I hear the noise of waters" and "I hear an army charging upon the land"). Although the poems did not sell well (fewer than half of the original print run of 500 had been sold in the first year), they received some critical acclaim.
