Shakespeare & Co., 1927 - Samuel Roth, 1929
|While researching the history of the 1934 Random House edition of Ulysses we had a 1927 Shakespeare and Company edition of Ulysses along with the 1929 Samuel Roth 'Piracy' of that edition unbound and scanned. Presented here in side-by-side format are those scans. Some of the background and results of this work can be found by consulting: Alistair McCleery, William S Brockman and Ian Gunn, 'Fresh Evidence and Further Complications: Correcting the Text of the Random House 1934 Edition of Ulysses', Joyce Studies Annual, 2008, pp 37-77.|
|Shakespeare and Company, 1927 — Roth, 1929 — If you want to quickly identify if a 1927 edition is actually a Roth 'piracy' then, apart from 'Jonathan Cape' being misspelt on the 'by the same writer' page, you will find page 189 where - the music is missing - the most obvious difference.
