The Holy Office, c. 1904. From Irish Times:
Joyce's rhyme and reasons under the
December 10, 2010.
A COPY OF the earliest surviving published work by James Joyce is to be
sold at auction in Dublin next week. The single sheet of paper, measuring about
11 by 8 inches, is typed with the poem The Holy Office and has a
pre-sale estimate of €15,000 to €20,000.
Rare books auctioneer Mealy’s says the 96-line poem is “the earliest
publication by Joyce of which we have definite evidence” and “the rarest by far
of all Joyce’s publications”.
A spokesman said “no more than three or four copies are known to survive”.
The poem was probably printed in Pola (a town now known as Pula in Croatia), the
Austro-Hungarian imperial naval base on the Adriatic’s Istria peninsula where
Joyce briefly lived from November 1904 to March 1905.
In printing jargon the document is known as a “broadside” – a large sheet of
paper printed on one side only.
The satirical poem was written in 1904, shortly before Joyce left Ireland,
and is regarded as an attack on the cultural establishment in Dublin of that
era. It suggests that he considered his role as a writer to be a sort of
“vicar-general” and that he would use his “holy office” to purge the failings of
a “clique” of writers and artists whom he despised.
The copy being sold is from the estate of Thomas Keohler a close friend of
Joyce, who lived in Rathmines, wrote poetry and worked for the printing firm
Hely’s. Two letters written by Joyce to Keohler from Paris in 1937 are also
being sold (estimate €6,000-€9,000). Mealy’s said “letters from James Joyce are
extremely rare as the vast majority are now in public collections”.
The items are included in a sale of rare books, periodicals, maps and
manuscripts to be held at the Berkeley Hotel in Dublin next Tuesday, December
14th. The sale also features first editions of Ulysses and
Dubliners and an “extremely scarce” recording, on a 12-inch Bakelite
record, of Joyce reading from Finnegans Wake .
In one of his letters to Keohler, Joyce wrote about the experience and
recalled the record had been “made under very unfavourable circumstances, the
BBC officials having made no preparation in the studio, never having heard of
me, of course, and regarding it as a family record”. The record has an estimate
of €2,500 to €3,500.
