Transition Number 1 April 1927 Issue

Paris: Shakespeare and Co., 1927. First edition. Paperback. Original bound wrappers. The premiere issue of Transition, a magazine of art and literature first edited by Eugene Jolas. Distributed out of Sylvia Beach's Shakespeare and Co. bookstore in Paris. Notable in many ways including the first appearance of the first section of Finnegan's Wake by James Joyce plus contributions by writers and artists such as Hart Crane, Marcel Noll, Pavel Tselitsieff, Max Ernst and many more. Front cover loose from binding. Several small chips to cover edges. Internally clean, unmarked and still decently bound. A rather fragile production. Transition ran from 1927 to 1938 and included 27 issues. Intended as an outlet for experimental writing with a heavy emphasis on surrealist, expressionist and Dada artists. Good. Item #34374
