    Fabulous!

    Possibly the volume pictured:
    28 Oct 1999. Christie's sale #9216:

    Lot 510
    JOYCE, James. Ulysses. New York: Random House, 1934. 8vo, original cloth (spine darkened, slightly soiled).
    Estimate: $300-500.

    Unfortunately, I don't have a copy of the sale results and they're no longer online, but it probably went for at least three times the estimate.

    She was a genius in real life. The stupid blonde act was just that; an act.

    I prefer the uncropped version.
    they are both compelling photos.
