Descripción The Limited Editions Club, New York, 1935. Original Decorative Cloth. Estado de conservación: Very Good. Henri Matisse Ilustrador. First Illustrated Edition. SIGNED BY BOTH JOYCE AND MATISSE. First Illustrated Edition with six soft-ground etchings and twenty reproductions of preliminary drawings on yellow and blue paper (mild foxing to extreme edges of etchings, contemporary bookplate, and endpapers). When Joyce learned that Matisse had chosen Homer as the inspiration for the illustrations, the number of copies he agreed to sign was abruptly reduced to only 250 from the entire edition of 1500. Those copies signed by both Joyce and Matisse were sold for five dollars more than the Matisse-only copies ($15 rather than $10). The paper board slipcase with which the book was issued has not survived. Size: Quarto. Signed by Author and Illustrator. Nº de ref. de la librería 004610
