Lot 471

Signed book: Haveth Childers Everywhere. First edition, limited issue, numbered 67/100. Paris, Henry Babou & Jack Kahane; New York, the Fountain Press, 1930. Softcover with glassine jacket and slipcase, 7.5 x 11.25, 73 pages. Signed on the colophon in pencil, "James Joyce." This gorgeous example is one of 100 copies printed on Imperial hand made iridescent Japan paper and signed by the author. Autographic condition: fine. Book condition: NF/VG- in a G slipcase, with a bookplate evidently removed from inside the front cover, a large tear to the front of the glassine jacket, and separations to edges of the slipcase (with the bottom panel present but completely detached); the book itself is exceptionally well-preserved, and it is a highly appealing volume of the highest quality. Haveth Childers Everywhere, a fragment from 'Work In Progress,' consists of what became the final part of Chapter 3, Book III of Finnegans Wake, James Joyce's renowned experimental epic. A gorgeous signed edition from the master modernist.

Estimate: $10,000-$15,000
