The Books of 1922 Exhibit

“The Books of 1922” celebrates the centennial of some notable works, including James Joyce’s Ulysses, T. S. Eliot’s The Waste Land, Virginia Woolf’s Jacob’s Room, Claude McKay’s Harlem Shadows and other books that became 20th-century standouts. The exhibit displays first edition covers and rare illustrations of Ulysses by Matisse, exploring the evolution of texts from manuscripts to beloved library copies bearing annotations by generations of students. This exhibit was created by the team of Associate Professor Frances Dickey and English major Claire Dooley.
