latest. Original dark slate cloth, spine lettered in gilt. Front panel and inner front flap of jacket retained. The scarce jacket obviously only partially present, but given the association what is there is just a bonus. The book is very good or better. Desmond Harmsworth's copy, signed by him on the front free endpaper, with Syvia Beach's Shakespeare and Company bookplate on the rear inner pastedown. Desmond Harmsworth, Second Baron Rothermere, son of politician Cecil Harmsworth and nephew of Viscounts Northcliffe and Rothermere, was a close friend to both Joyce and Beach-the correspondence between the three is held at Princeton. Educated at Eton and Oxford, Harmsworth chose to go to art school in Paris rather than join the family newspaper firm, becoming a poet and artist. He is best known for the 1932 Limited Edition of Joyce's 'Pomes Penyeach' which was illustrated by Lucia Joyce and succeeded Sylvia Beach's own first publication of the poems. He also published 'James Joyce and the Plain Reader'. Shakespeare and Company has been described as 'clubhouse, post office, bank, and publishing house for the great and soon-to-be-great artists of the twentieth century'-among them Pound, Joyce himself, Hemingway, Djuna Barnes and T S Eliot. Harmsworth's copy of 'A Portrait' displays the oblong bookplate associated with the books sold by Sylvia Beach, showing the bald headed Shakespeare designed by Charles Winzer, alongside Beach's '12 rue de l'Odeon' address. The flap bears the original price of the book and the front has a puff from H G Wells' 1917 review of the book: "It is a book to buy and read. It's claim to be literature is as good as the claim of the last book of Gulliver's Travels. It is by far the most living and convincing picture that exists of an Irish Catholic upbringing. The technique is startling. A most memorable novel." This, Joyce's first Novel, foreshadows his masterpiece Ulysses, but is more approachable.

The first English edition, printed in France. Bound in full blue morocco, raised bands, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, double gilt ruled to the front and rear panesl, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. One of 2000 copies. Ownership copy of playwright and poet, socialist and politician Sam DeWitt, best known for having been barred from taking his seat in the New Your State Assembly in 1920, along with four others, after having been elected as a Socialist from his Bronx district. A colorful figure in New York leftist politics and the Bohemian scene in Greenwich Village, DeWitt owned and operated a company trading in used machinery in lower Manhattan, and published a number of books or poetry and several plays. He was a long-time friend of left wing writer Upton Sinclair. In Sinclair's muckraking novel The Jungle, published in 1906, one of the main characters, Nicolas Schliemann, is said to be based on Sam DeWitt. This copy bears his ownership signature where-in apparent reference to the "pornographic" nature of the book-De Witt has written "This is my book" below which he has sketched the male genitalia with "Ex" on one side, and "Libris" on the other, and then, below the sketch, his signature and his address in Bronx, NY. According to Slocum & Cahoon, of the 2000 copies of Ulysses from the first edition plates, approximately 500 were sent to America and subsequently burned by government censorship authorities. Ulysses was published in Paris by Shakespeare & Company, 1922. It was a struggle for the author to find a publisher, a comic irony considering that Ulysses is "[u]niversally hailed as the most influential work of modern times" (Grolier Joyce 69). Ulysses was an immediate success. The first printing sold out, and "within a year Joyce had become a well-known literary figure. Ulysses was explosive in its impact on the literary world of 1922" (de Grazia, 27).
