    Paris: La Maison des Amis des Livres, 1929

    Quarto. Traduit de l'anglais par M. Auguste Morel assist par M. Stuart Gilbert. Traduction entierement revue par M. Valery Larbaud avec la collaboration de l'Auteur. First Edition in French. One of an edition limited to 100 numbered copies on velin d'Arches, this being No. 8. Finely bound by Jean de Gonet. A beautiful example of one of de Gonet's "revorim" bindings, with a gray leather spine and three "open" cut outs to expose the structure of thick, black sewing thread, and blue textured bands. The cover design features de Gonet's signature blindstamped geometric patterns of circles, squares (both larger and smaller) in black with red, cream, and blue, geometric inlay with "DE GONET ARTEFACTS" in blind. Silver gilt titles. Fine in a protective black paper covered chemise and matching slipcase. Joyce's controversial literary techniques and extremely formal structure are perfectly paired with Jean de Gonet's reinterpretations of bookbinding traditions.
