New York: The Little Review, 1919. First edition - Founded by Margaret Anderson in March 1914, The Little Review became one of the chief periodicals publishing experimental writing; its motto was "Making No Compromise with the Public Taste." Anderson began editing The Little Review in Chicago, then moved the paper to New York in 1917 (after a short stint in San Francisco the year before), and later moved it overseas to Paris after 1922. Along the way, she was joined, in 1916, by Jane Heap, as co-editor, and in 1917 by by Ezra Pound, as foreign editor. Under Pound's influence, the magazine added contributions from authors like Djuna Barnes, T. S. Eliot, Wyndham Lewis, Mina Loy, Francis Picabia, Dorothy Richardson, May Sinclair, Gertrude Stein, W. C. Williams, and W. B. Yeats. But its most lasting, and boldest, achievement was its serialization of Joyce's Ulysses, in 23 installments, from 1918 to 1920 until the Society for the Suppression of Vice charged the magazine with obscenity and Anderson and Heap, losing the court trial, were forced to discontinue the novel amid the "Oxen of the Sun" episode. The five issues include works by William Carlos Williams, William Butler Yeats, May Sinclair, Sherwood Anderson, Ezra Pound, Dorothy Williams, and January, August and September and three of the issues -January, August and September 1919 - include installments from Ulysses by Joyce. 68 pp each.
