James Joyce and the making of Ulysses. London: Grayson & Grayson, 1934. First Edition. Pp, 320. Very good copy in quarter cloth boards.
With a portrait of James Joyce and four drawings to Ulysses by the Author.
Frank Budgen (1882-1971) was an English artist and former sailor who found himself in Zurich at the start of the first World War. While there he made the acquaintance of Joyce. Joyce talked freely to Budgen about Ulysses, which he was then writing, and his letters to Budgen about the book are by far the most revealing and important that he wrote.
