Finnegans Wake. London: Faber, 1939. Pp, 627, uncut. Limited Edition, of 425 Copies, Signed by Joyce (this copy number 65). Bound in red buckram, spine gilt stamped on two panels, housed in publisher's yellow cloth slipcase. Loosely inserted is the original publisher's prospectus advertising this edition and a booklet "Corrections of Misprints in Finnegans Wake" published by Macmillan in 1945. A fine bright copy. Published two years before the author's death, this is Joyce's final novel, appropriately all-embracing, bewildering in content, and with a language that is often mellifluous and at the same time inaccessible by any standard measure of denotation. Joyce has said that a person could profitably devote a lifetime to "Finnegans Wake." Joyce's biographer Richard Ellman observed, "In his earlier books Joyce forced modern literature to accept new styles, new subject matter, new kinds of plot and characterization. In his last book he forced it to accept a new area of being and a new language.
