Pennsylvania: The Franklin Library, 1976. [Modern Literature] FIRST FRANKLIN LIBRARY EDITION. Octavo (24 x 16cm), pp. 798 . With occasional illustrations, including a frontispiece, by Cober. Publisher's brown full leather binding, with raised bands and extensive gilt decoration. All edges gilt, and grey watered silk endpapers. A fine, lightly handled copy. This experimentalist novel, retelling Homer's 'Odyssey' in a contemporary setting within the course of a single day, introduced Joyce's now infamous use of complex stream-of-consciousness interior monologues. Love or loathe it, 'Ulysses' has been described as the most important novel in the English language. First published in 1922, the novel went through numerous printings, creating new errors in the text as the original printing mistakes were corrected. Item #59670
