Finnegans Wake. London: Faber, 1939.  First Edition.  Pp, 628, uncut. Large 8vo. Maroon cloth, titled in gilt on spine, original maroon dust jacket printed in yellow. Light spotting to endpapers, fraying to top edge of jacket with a little loss to head & tail of spine, otherwise a bright clean example of the  jacket & book.  Joyce began work on the book immediately after  completing Ulysses, writing the first pages on 11 March 1923. In this infinitely  complex work, Joyce mixed the mythological and the mundane, the universal and  the parochial, as never before. The full text of Finnegans Wake was issued simultaneously in London and New York on 4th May 1939. [Slocum and Cahoon A47]
