Antique Book James Joyce "A Portrait of the Artist as A Young Man" [c.1933] Modern Library
By James Joyce, published circa 1933 by the Modern Library.
Although the book does not contain a specific printing date, I have pinned down the date to 1933/34 by the size, style of covers and the book list printed at the end of the book.
This is a "very good" book with solid binding and cover hinges, no loose pages, no tears, no folded pages. There are no writing marks or name plates. The brown balloon cloth is tanned at the spine and has general surface wear, but not rubbed through on covers. The board corner tips are bumped and have the underneath card exposed at the very tips (see images), but not significantly so. The spine is crimped at the title lettering and is slightly split at the head at the front and back at the folds.
Overall, a solid antique copy of an important work by Joyce!
Will ship securely packed and fully insured.
