At Nate D. Sanders Auctions we sold the following signed James Joyce copy of Ulysses, although not a first edition, so nowhere near as valuable:

James Joyce Autograph and an Henri Matisse Autograph in a Scarce Limited Edition of “Ulysses”

Scarce copy of “Ulysses” rare book by James Joyce, illustrated by Henri Matisse. New York: The Limited Editions Club: 1935.  Number 297 of a limited edition run of 1500 copies.  One of only 250 such copies signed by both Joyce and Matisse.  Boldly signed by the author and illustrator on limitation page.  Full brown buckram boards with gilt embossing to front cover and backstrip.  Large octavo measures 9″ x 11.5″.  Volume runs 420pp. with an introduction by Stuart Gilbert and illustrations by Henri Matisse including 20 reproductions of preliminary drawings and six original soft-ground etchings.  In 1935 George Macy, founder of the fledgling Limited Editions Club, made the bold decision to commission Matisse to illustrate Joyce’s controversial and previously banned masterpiece, “Ulysses.”  Matisse, understanding that Joyce’s work parodied the original eighteen episodes of the “Odyssey,” chose to create his 26 full-page illustrations as actual illustrations of Homer’s original work.  Matisse later signed all 1500 of Macy’s limited edition, however, as legend has it, when Joyce realized that Matisse had been working from Homer’s “Odyssey” rather than his novel, he refused to sign any more than the 250 copies he had already signed making this double-signed edition exceedingly rare.  Rare book without original slipcase, else fine condition.  Sold for $14,460.

Sir John Tenniel Illustration Used in the First Edition of ”Through the Looking-Glass” — With a Presentation Signing by Tenniel From ”Christmas 1876”

Sir John Tenniel original illustration from ”Through the Looking Glass”, the sequel to the enormously successful ”Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”. This illustration appears on page 201 of the first edition of ”Looking Glass”, done to illustrate the text, ”She was standing before an arched doorway over which were the words QUEEN ALICE in large letters…” A presentation inscription by Tenniel is written to the lower margin, ”With Mr. Tenniel’s kind regards / Christmas 1876”. Pencil drawing was done sometime between 1869-1871 when Tenniel again collaborated with Lewis Carroll in illustrating his novel, an undertaking that Tenniel first rejected due to the time-consuming nature of the work: after drawing preliminary sketches, Tenniel would transfer the artwork onto woodblocks using tracing paper and then finish shading on the blocks. The Brothers Dalziel would then produce engravings from the blocks. Tenniel at first rejected Carroll’s offer to illustrate ”Looking Glass”, but ultimately relented as Carroll could find no other illustrator that matched Tenniel’s ”grotesque” interpretation of the fantasy creatures he envisioned. Drawing measures 3.25” x 4.5”, archivally matted and framed to 11.25” x 12.75”. Very light foxing to margins and light uniform toning, overall near fine condition. From the Bronson Winthrop collection of Tenniel drawings: Parke-Bernet sale of 12 March 1945, lot 164.  Sold for $37,500.
