KOCHVILLE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -

Fans of author James Joyce now have the opportunity to learn even more about the 20th century Irish author at Saginaw Valley State University.

The family of Dr. George A. Ellis donated a collection of more than 350 books written by or relating to Joyce. Some are first editions.

Ellis was a Saginaw physician who died in 2010.

James Sullivan, an English professor at SVSU, tells MLive.com (http://bit.ly/Ys31dc) the collection is substantial in number and depth.

Three of Joyce's four volumes were recently ranked among the top literary works of the 20th century. Those novels are `Dubliners,' `Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man,' and `Ulysses.'

Sullivan says most of the books are copies of those works and critical commentary on them.
