The unique Dublin Illustrated Edition, endorsed by The James Joyce Centre, meticulously recreates the 1922 text, and has been published to celebrate the Global Bloomsday Gathering, a live online reading of Ulysses which starts on 15 June 2013 at the James Joyce centre.
Ulysses chronicles the passage of Leopold Bloom through Dublin during an ordinary day, 16 June 1904. Ulysses' stream-of-consciousness technique, careful structuring, and experimental prose—full of puns, parodies, and allusions, as well as its rich characterisations and broad humour, made the book a highly regarded novel in the Modernist pantheon. In 1998, the Modern Library ranked Ulysses first on its list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century.

Though initial preparation for the work began in 1902, Ulysses, a modernist classic, was eventually published in 1922. A remarkable conflation of mythology, symbolism, philosophy, social realism and humanity, this tale of the events of a single day (June 16, 1904) in Dublin is loosely based on Homer's Odyssey.Product Description:
A corrected text, first published in 1984 after seven years textual research. Professor Gabler and his team of scholars returned to the original manuscripts, drafts and proofs in order to reconstruct as closely as possible the creative process by which Joyce wrote "Ulysses".
