Author: JOYCE, JAMES; ELLMANN, RICHARD (INTRODUCTION & NOTES).
Title: Giacomo Joyce.
Description: New York Viking Press, 1968. 1st U.S. trade ed. Hardback small octavo, dustjacket, very good condition (in good plus dustjacket), red boards (grey cloth spine), frontispiece, pages lightly toned, edges little foxed, reverse side jacket lightly toned (edge tears, faded notably spine, tiny hole spine, flap clipped, light loss spine ends). Unnum pp. This book was first published in 1959. It is an autobiographical love story written by James Joyce in Trieste, thought to be in 1914, when he was 32. Ellmann's introduction - a fascinating piece of literary detection - dates the work from internal evidence, the title is explained, reports the circumstances behind the story - and gives a possible reason why, after the copy was prepared for the printer, it was never published. This reissue edition retains the introduction and notes, with some revisions. The book includes four manuscript pages in reduced facsimile, as well as a frontispiece portrait.
