JOYCE, JAMES. 1882-1941.
[Ulysses. Tokyo: Daiichi Shobō, 1931-1934.]
2 volumes. In Japanese. Original limp blue buckram, spines gilt-lettered in English. Sunning and scuffing to cloth, text block cleanly detached at upper joint of vol 2, spine ends worn.

FIRST JAPANESE EDITION, third printing of volume 1 and first printing of volume 2. A very early foreign-language edition of Ulysses, preceded only by the French, German and Czech. Translated by Sei Itō, Sadamu Nagamatsu, and Hisanori Tsujino, all young men in their twenties at the time. The Japanese edition is usually found with the Penelope episode lacking, presumably a casualty of censorship, but it is present here. Slocum & Cahoon D-91.
