      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.
