FIRST EDITION, SIGNED ISSUE, number 73 of 100 copies signed by Joyce in pencil, and printed on hand-made iridescent Japan, from a total edition of 685. Jack Kahane, the "dirty books" publisher the Obelisk Press, approached Joyce in 1929 about publishing something from his "Work in Progress," a portion of which had appeared in Transitions earlier that year. Introduced through Sylvia Beach, Kahane, who was known to refer to Joyce simply as "God," paid Joyce 50,000 francs and published the 5000-word fragment with "touching reverence and incomparable luxury" (Kahane, Memoirs of a Booklegger, p 29). The section forms chapter 3 of book III in what eventually became Finnegans Wake. Slocum and Cahoon A41.
