Descripción New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1935., 1935. Quarto. Cloth, decorated in gilt and blind. Illustrated with six original etchings, accompanied by reproductions of the preliminary sketches. Trace of slight darkening along endsheet gutters, otherwise a fine, bright copy, without foxing to the etchings, in somewhat darkened slipcase with bruises at tips, and cracks and splits at joints. Modern half morocco and cloth folding clamshell case. First American printing of the corrected Odyssey Press text. From an edition of 1500 numbered copies, signed by Matisse, this is one of only 250 copies signed as well by Joyce. A textually significant edition, whatever the shortcomings of its design (by George Macy) and the inappropriateness of the illustrations (Matisse illustrated Homer rather than Joyce, a factor allegedly contributing to Joyce's reluctance to sign the entire edition). "One of the very few American livres de peintres issued before World War II. According to George Macy, who undertook this only American publication of Matisse's illustrations, he asked the artist how many etchings the latter could provide for five thousand dollars. The artist chose to take six subjects from Homer's Odyssey. The preparatory drawings reproduced with the soft-ground etchings (Matisse's only use of this medium) record the evolution of the figures from vigorous sketches to closely knit, if less spontaneous, compositions" - Artist & The Book.
