A James Joyce Yearbook

Scarce, especially with the original publisher's
glassine wrapper. Despite the ambitious title of
"Yearbook," this was the only issue ever
published. Includes Stuart Gilbert's article,
"Sketch of a Scenario of Anna Livia Plurabelle,"
as well as articles such as "Last Meeting with
Joyce" by Heinrich Straumann, "In Memory of
Joyce" by Paul Léon, "Recollections of James
Joyce" by Phillipe Soupault, "The Finn Cycle" by
Clémence Ramnoux, and others.

In 1949, Maria Jolas and her Transition
Press published an extraordinary book called
the James Joyce Yearbook. History buffs and
Paris expat enthusiasts instantly acknowledge
the role that "transition" contributed to 20th
Century literature.
