Small Collection
various, various, (1939-1959). A small collection of four works about Joyce, from the library of Horace Middleton, who collaborated with Phil Phillips on critical studies of Joyce. (Phillips' archive is at the Rosenbach Museum.) Offered here are four books that have been heavily annotated by Middleton. Each bears Middleton's ownership signature, one adding "from PP [presumably Phillips], Nov. 1959." Included are first editions of James Joyce by Herbert Gorman (1939); James Joyce by Harry Levin (1941); James Joyce by Richard Ellmann (1959); and Letters of James Joyce edited by Stuart Gilbert (1957). All bear Middleton's comments and corrections in the text, but for the Ellmann (the book gifted from PP), which escaped scrutiny. The books, on average, are near fine; the jackets are fair, or (in the case of the Gorman) missing. [#035300] $400

All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.
