Here we see him having a chat with Sylvia Beach, who published [on February 2, 1922] the first edition of Ulysses in her shop, and Adrienne Monnier publisher of the French translation of “Ulysses.” Mlle. Monnier is also editor and publisher of La Gazette des Amis du Livre and owner of a French bookshop across the street from Shakespeare and Company, 1938 (2490.2005)
