Stiff b&w pictorial wraps, spiral-bound. Front cover photograph by Carl Van Vechten of Ruth Bower's painting celebrating Joyce's Finnegans Wake. This copy emerges directly from the inventory of Frances Steloff's Gotham Book Mart, never circulated and showing only the slight shelf wear that one might expect of a bookseller's catalog printed nearly 80 years ago. Gotham's 20th-anniversary catalog, which, as W. G. Rogers writes in his biography of Steloff, "served to establish Gotham Book Mart among avant-gardists" and so captivated the New York publishing world that it gained mention in the New York Times Book Review. Introductory notes by Steloff and Kay Steele, Gertrude Stein, and Samuel Putnam, with sub-introductions to individual sections of the catalog by Dudley Fitts, William Carlos Williams, and Whit Burnett. Sections on literary Modernism, anthologies, writing, Surrealism, and little magazines. 90 pp.
