[ The James Joyce-Paul Léon Papers of 1930-40 held at the National Library of Ireland: Catalogue - online. ]

Free access to NLI Joyce Papers: On Tuesday, 10 April 2012 the National Library of Ireland made its holdings of James Joyce manuscripts available cost-free online - deemed to be the first time that such an initiative has been been undertaken by any institution, world-wide. The decision was apparently arrived at in response to the publication of draft-pages of Finnegans Wake acquired by Library in 2005 which had been transcribed by Danis Rose and issued in the Houhnhynm imprint of Lilliput earlier in 2012. The papers can be reached via the NLI Catalogue as Record - vtls000194606

*The Paris Notebook and the Pola Notebook, though separated in time by two years, are now known to exist in the same French maths exercise book presumably purchased in Paris in 1902. On this sight the copied contents of the Paris Notebook are listed under Quotations and those of the Pola Notebook in a separate file. At some time in the future these will be united in a single fie with partial copies only in other locations in RICORSO.

*Note: The Triad Grafton/Collins 1977 edition of Stephen Hero is a repaginated reprint of the Jonathan Cape Edn. [1944]; 2nd imp. 1946; 3rd imp. 1948; 4th imp. 1950; rev. edn. type re-set, 1956; rep. 1960, 1969. The pagination of this edition varies from that of the Jonathan Cape re-set edition of 1956 with which it is otherwise identical. Thus on p.7 of the Grafton edition there are almost four lines more of type, hence condensing the whole into a lesser number of pages. Again, the MS in Grafton edition runs from p.27 to p.220 while that in the Cape edition runs from p.29 to p.253, with corresponding alterations in the pagination of the interim pages - e.g., the Eccles St. epiphany falls on p.188 in the Grafton edn. but on p.216 in the Cape.

Sam Slote, Catalogue Notes, Buffalo Univ. Library “Bloomsday” Centennial Exhibit, 2004: ‘The eleventh printing was to be the last [printing of Ulysses] published by Shakespeare and Company. The statement that 28,000 copies had been produced is a slight exaggeration. There were 1,000 copies of the first printing, 2,000 of the second, 500 of the third, 2,000 for each of the fourth through seventh printings, and 4,000 for each of the eighth through eleventh printings, making for a total of 27,500 copies (there were additional copies of each printing, which would raise the total slightly).’ [online; 31.12.2008]

Notes on editions

See Sam Slote, ‘The Text of Finnegans Wake: An Annotated List of the Correction of Misprints’, in James Joyce Quarterly, 55:3-14 (Spring-Summer 2018), pp.405-44:;‘[O]nly the 1975 Faber printing (and its subsequent reprints) accurately represents the first edition with Joyce's corrections properly applied. Because that printing is still based on the same plates used back in 1929, howeer, it does suffer from the occasional broken ascender and descender.’ (p.405; available at Muse - online; accessed 11.11.2020.) See also the account of Joyce’s efforts at correct printing errors in Aug. 1939- Aug. 1940 - James Joyce Centre: ‘On This Day’ - online; accessed 11.11.2020.

Note: A bound presentation copy of the 1966 Viking Press printing of Finnegans Wake [12th printing] given to Marshall McLuhan by the alumni of Fordham University on 30 As, though more often written on tpril 1968 served as the Internet Archive copy-text - online. The volume is interleaved with blank pages for notes and does indeed contain his sparse annotationhe printed page. Those on the blank page include 619 facing: ‘Ellmann 724: “Soft morning etc. / a record of the endings of all his previous books.[’] The phrase ‘past and present’ on 389 is underlined and annotated marginally with the name of ‘Carlyle’. Facing The Ballad of Persse O’Rahilly, p.44, he writes inter alia: ‘Emerson [?title]: ‘Human body magazine of all technologies.”’ accessed 10.11.2020.]

Finn’s Hotel, ed. & arranged by Danis Rose, intro. by Seamus Deane, ill. Casey Sorry, with typography by Michael Caine [Atelier de la Cerisaie] (Dublin: Ithys Press 2013), [100]pp. ‘Uncovered by Irish scholar Danis Rose in the course of his research for a critical edition of Joyce's Finnegans Wake, this series of profound and beautifully written stories is based on seven epiphanic moments in Irish history and mythology. Finn's Hotel is a luminous and often funny work, and it reveals Joyce's creative process during the transition between Ulysses and Finnegans Wake.’ (Publisher's note; Goodreads.)

Strick (b.1923), also directed A Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Man (1979), co-scripted with Judith Rascoe, with Bosco Hogan, T. P. McKenna and John Gielgud.
