St Patrick’s Day

March 17, 2010

A special  ancient edition of James Joyce’s “Dubliners”, smooth cloth cover, as green as the  island of the “Forty shades of green”. Joyce’s famous book is translated in French “Gens de Dublin” and contains some lovely lithographies by Charles Bardet. I thought it would be an opportunity to wish a ” Happy St Patrick’s Day to all Irish people and  to those Irish at heart.

    What a wonderful post! And what a treasure of a book you’ve found. A fresh and intriguing way to mark St. Patrick’s Day.

    • Thank you Gerry. I found this book in my favourite second hand bookshop in Fribourg. I could spend hours there but since I am in a year of “clearing out”… I avoid walking in the area 😉

  2. Happy Saint Patrick’s Day to you too Isa 🙂
