Shakespeare and Company: The Story of an American Bookshop in Paris.
by [Paris in the 1920s] Beach, Sylvia.

Publisher Information:
Harcourt, Brace & Co,, New York:: 1959..

A Near Fine tight copy in a Near Fine, bright unclipped dust jacket. Laid-in is a postcard announcing the appearance of Sylvia Beach at the Poetry Center in New York delivering a talk on "The American and French of the Twenties Meet in the Rue de L'Odeon." Beginning in 1919 Ms. Beach, through her lending library and bookstore, became the den mother of the expatriate writing community in Paris and also the publisher of what many believe to be the most important piece of 20th Century literature-Ulysses by James Joyce. She knew everybody worth knowing in Paris and her memoirs show just how important a bookshop and its owner can be in the literary world.
