Two volumes. Hamburg: The Odyssey Press, 1933. Third impression. 12mo. pp. (1) 400, (2) [ii], 401-792. Grey card, titled in purple. Mild wear. A very good set.
The Odyssey Press edition was the first authorized edition of 'Ulysses' not printed in France - it was published in English, in Germany at a time when the work was banned in England and the United States. While Random House was trying to overturn the ban against Ulysses in the United States, the Albatross Press of Hamburg approached Joyce and Sylvia Beach, hoping to assume Beach's rights to Ulysses in continental Europe, then to take up the task of a publication in England where the work was still banned.
This two-volume set is the third printing of the Odyssey Press version of Ulysses. At the time of its publication it was considered the authoritative edition. Stuart Gilbert, a friend of Joyce's said, "The present edition may be regarded as the definitive standard edition, as it has been specially revised, at the author's request". A very acceptable set of this relatively rare offering.
