VII.A.4: Envelope with Corrections for the Typescript of "Daniele Defoe":
Material Description and Collation: The manuscript is an off-white envelope, with writing in Beach's and possibly Meles's hands black and blue ink and lead pencil on the recto and in black ink on the verso.
Title: The envelope is titled "Manuscript | of Daniele Defoe | by James Joyce" in Meles's hand on the recto in black ink; Sylvia Beach subsequently crossed out "Manuscript of" in blue ink.
Measurements: The manuscript measures approximately 33.5 x 27.8 cm.
Contents: The manuscript contains a list of corrections to be made to the typescript of Joyce's "Daniele Defoe" essay (MS VII.A.3.a & 3.b), in Meles's hand. The envelope was also subsequently used to store the manuscript and typescript of "Daniele Defoe," as is indicated by Beach's notes on the envelope (see Other Markings).
Other Markings: On the recto, beneath Meles's title, Beach wrote the following note in blue ink and in lead pencil: "given to SB by J.J. | (only the typescript copy by Jane v. Meles) | MS in book with transparent leaves". At the top of the recto, Beach wrote "JJ MS DANIELE DEFOE" in lead pencil.
Dating: This manuscript is not dated; it was presumably prepared in 1912, with MSS VII.A.3.a & 3.b.
Publication: This manuscript has not been reproduced and was not listed in Spielberg.
Notes: The envelope was never sealed normailed. The envelope is lightly stained on the recto and verso and there is a black ink stain on the verso.
