Annotations[edit]

1000 COPIES     A further 20 copies were printed, without dust jackets, on mixed paper and marked, press copy.[1]

DUTCH HANDMADE PAPER     Holland handmade paper.[2] These copies sold for 350 francs.[3]

VERGÉ D'ARCHES     A type of laid paper that is manufactured in the French town of Arches and reserved for deluxe editions of books. These copies sold for 250 francs.[4]

HANDMADE PAPER     Linen handmade paper, which was slightly less expensive than the paper used for the first 250 copies.[5] These copies sold for 150 francs.[6]

typographical errors     The original edition of Ulysses contains more than 2000 errata.[7] Several factors contributed to this outcome: Sylvia Beach's inexperience as a publisher;[8] Joyce's poor eyesight, which made it difficult for him to correct galleys;[9] the book's printer Maurice Darantière's inexperience at typesetting English texts;[10] Joyce's many late changes to the text;[11] the avant-garde nature of the work.[12]

S. B.     Sylvia Beach, proprietor of the Parisian bookstore Shakespeare and Company. She published Joyce's Ulysses on 2 February 1922. The printer was Maurice Darantière of Dijon. See Title Page.
