Pomes Penyeach. Shakespeare and Company, Paris, 1927. First edition. Publisher’s pale green paper, title printed in dark green. With errata slip tipped-in at end. Light browning to boards, contents bright & clean. A very good copy of this delicate item.
Apparently Joyce chose the very pale green paper for the binding of this little book in honour of his favourite apple, the Carville, but unfortunately the paper tans in response to the briefest exposure to light. [Slocum & Cahoon A24].
