ULYSSES | by | JAMES JOYCE | will be published in | the Autumn of 1921 | by | [publisher's device] | "SHAKESPEARE AND COMPANY" | ó SYLVIA BEACH ó | 12, RUE DE L'ODÉON, PARIS ó VIe The extensive revisions Joyce made to Ulysses during the proof stages delayed the publication considerably. When the subscription form came out (it was also printed by DarantiËre), it indicated a release date of the Autumn of 1921. On one Joyce corrected the release date to January 1922. In the end, the book was finished just in time for Joyce's fortieth birthday on February 2, 1922. There are three variants of the subscription form. The first two indicate an Autumn 1921 release date and the third, wisely, gives no date. The first was made when Shakespeare and Company was located at its original address of 8, rue Dupuytren. In the Autumn of 1921 Beach moved the store to 12, rue de l'OdÈon, a change reflected on the second variant. The first two variants state, "The work will be a volume in-8 crown of 600 pages." By the time the third variant was made, that estimate had expanded to 732 pages. Next to the front page is the inside of the first variant of the subscription form. The verso of the inside has a picture of Joyce and some of the more favourable advance press notices that Joyce had culled. The recto indicates the three different limitations of the first edition that could be ordered: copies 1-100, priced at 350 Fr., were on fine Dutch handmade paper and were signed by Joyce; 101-250, priced at 250 Fr., were on vergÈ d'Arches paper; and 251-1,000, priced at 150 Fr., on vergÈ ‡ barbes (about twenty unnumbered copies were also produced). This is the 2nd variant, i.e. rue de l’OdÈon, with a release date. In near perfect condition, very slight fade marks at one extreme edge, otherwise unfaded, undented. N° de réf. du libraire
