James Joyce extremely rare signed 1919 portrait

29 Aug

Extremely rare vintage matte-finish 3.25 x 5.25 postcard photo of Joyce resting his head upon his right arm and looking straight into the camera, signed in the lower border in black ink, “With compliments, James Joyce, 6/1/[1]919.” In very good to fine condition, with a crease to the right side of the photo, moderate silvering to dark areas of the image, and slight irregular adhesion to signature. During the period of this photo, Joyce was in the middle of writing Ulysses—doubtlessly one of the most influential works of the 20th century—which was at the same time being serialized in The Little Review. Joyce is ultra-rare in signed photos, this being the only one we have offered in 30 years. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
