1961 ULYSSES James Joyce Hardcover Dust Jacket

Regular price $47.00

This is a 1961 copy of James Joyce's ULYSSES. It is a hardcover published by Modern Library. The dust jacket is in very good condition, although there are a couple small chips. There is a stain in the upper corner of the first few pages of the book. The binding is structurally sound and there aren't any obvious signs of inscriptions, marginalization, or dog-eared pages.


Ulysses is one of the most banned books of all time. The ‘Nausicaa’ chapter contains masturbation references but many people miss them because the work is so dense. The section was declared obscene by the courts after it was featured in a literary journal. The whole novel was banned in the US for most of the 1930s, with the Postal Service burning copies sent in the mail. If you collect banned books, this is one you want on your shelf.
