4o. Original "Greek flag" blue printed wrappers, uncut (1½-inch splits to upper joint at ends, few other small nicks and losses at ends of spine).
FIRST EDITION, LIMITED ISSUE, number 506 of 750 copies on handmade paper from an edition of 1,000. The first printing consisted of 1,000 copies, divided into three various limitations. The first 100 copies were printed on fine handmade paper, numbered 1-100, and signed by Joyce. Copies 101-250 were also printed on handmade paper, though of a lesser grade than the first 100, and were not signed by Joyce. The final 750 copies--as here--were numbered 251-1,000, printed on the least expensive stock of paper, and like the previous limitation, were not signed by Joyce. Connolly, The Modern Movement 42; Slocum & Cahoon A17.
