*VI.I.1: "Work in Progress"/Finnegans Wake Emendations And Errata: Emendations for the Faircopy Draft of Finnegans Wake I.1 (1926):
Material Description, Collation: The manuscript is a loose sheet of rolled paper, with a watermark of an image of a mailed arm & battle-axe and below it: "FABRIQUÉ EN ÉCOSSE". Joyce used the sheet horizontally, with the perforated edge on the left hand side; the emendation is on the recto in Joyce's hand in black ink. This manuscript is the same kind of paper as MSS VI.I.2, I.31, I.43, and VI.J.4; all were probably torn from the same or similar tablets or blocks of sheets.
Measurements: The manuscript measures 13.0 x 19.0 cm.
Contents: The manuscript is an extradraft sheet with instructions to further emend the twice-redrafted ink fair copy. See FW 029.02–04
JJA Draft Code: I.1§2.*2+.
Dating: The manuscript was probably written around 16 December 1926 (see JJA 44.141).
Other Markings: Joyce wrote "MS | page 26" in black ink in the upper margin of the recto: it refers to BL 47472, f. 30r (see JJA 44.140), where the emendation was added on the faircopy sheet by an amanuensis.
Notes: The emendation was transcribed by an amanuensis (probably not Beach, Maria Jolas, or Weaver) on the redrafted faircopy sheet (BL 47472, f. 30r; JJA 44.140) and was incorporated on the typescript (Private Collection; JJA 44.171).
