Joyce, James - Finnegans Wake (Published in by The Folio Society in 2014. Bound in cloth with leather inset label. Set in Dante. 536 pages. 11 colour illustrations and frontispiece. Blocked slipcase. Book size: 11½" x 8". Introduced by David Greetham. Illustrated by John Vernon Lord. Seventeen years in the making, James Joyce’s staggering experiment with language has provoked wonder, veneration, derision and bewilderment. But, more than 70 years after its first publication, it remains for many the pinnacle of creative linguistic achievement in the English – or not quite so English – language. John Vernon Lord has created 12 intriguing collages, as well as an insightful introduction in which he outlines the thought process behind each image. This edition has been set from the definitive Houyhnhnm Press text edited by Danis Rose and John O’Hanlon. Their original preface is included, alongside Seamus Deane’s note on the new edition and David Greetham’s introduction. It has been many years since the last illustrated edition of Finnegans Wake. John Vernon Lord has illustrated numerous books, including The Hunting of the Snark by Lewis Carroll, whose comedic nonsense words are often seen as a source for Joyce. )
