The Cats of Copenhagen, written in 1936 for Joyce's grandson, has been published for the first time in a collectors' edition by Ithys Press

The story was originally written by Joyce in letter to his grandson Stephen whilst the author was in Denmark.

However, the Zurich James Joyce Foundation, to whom the letter was donated, has claimed that the unpublished letter is not out of copyright and that it has not granted permission for the book's release.

The published works of James Joyce came out of copyright and entered the public domain on 1 January this year.

Prices for the 200 copies in the Ithys Press edition, illustrated by Casey Sorrow, start at €300.
