An early Bloomsday in France!
An early Bloomsday celebration was the Déjeuner Ulysse at the appropriately named Léopold Restaurant in Les Vaux de Cernay, near Versailles. It was organised by Sylvia Beach, publisher of Ulysses, and her partner, Adrienne Monnier, in June 1929, to celebrate the first French edition of Ulysses. Among the guests were some of the most prominent figures in French literature at that time: Léon-Paul Fargue, Eduard Dujardin, Paul Valéry, Jules Romains, and Philippe Soupault. Also in attendance was Samuel Beckett, though he does not appear in the photograph.
