todaysdocument:

Happy Bloomsday!

A copy of James Joyce’s Ulysses, with Ernest Hemingway’s signature.  From the Ernest Hemingway Collection at the John F. Kennedy Library.

An archival note states the pages of the book are not cut - implying Hemingway might never have read this copy.

But before we get too judgmental, have you ever read Ulysses?
