4to. The first extant printing of the author's second separate publication. Slocum & Cahoon A2. Preceded only by "Et Tu, Healy," which was privately printed by Joyce's father when his precocious son was but nine years old. Though it is known to have existed, no one has ever seen a copy of this juvenile effort. The circumstances under which the argumentative and irreverent "The Holy Office" was printed were spelled out by Joyce's brother, Stanislaus. After its composition, Joyce commissioned the broadside's printing in Dublin, but because the then-indigent Joyce could not come up with the wherewithal to pay the printer, he never received the copies, which presumably, were deep-sixed. No copy is known to have survived. Years later, Joyce, now solvent and living in Pola, had the poem printed again, the copies of which he and his brother distributed through the mails to members of the author's literary circle. Joyce's bibliographers estimate that fewer than 100 copies were produced. Fine. Housed in a custom-made cloth chemise. Among the rarest of the author's primary publications.
