Second Part of a Copy of the Typescript (with First Overlay) of the "Circe" (15) Episode

Material Description and Collation

The manuscript consists of 6 sheets of long, thin typing paper. All of the pages are double-spaced typewritten black ink bottom (carbon) copies; all the versos are blank. There are corrections and additions in Joyce’s hand on pp. [1], [2] and [6] in black ink.


The sheets measure approximately 33.0 x 22.0 cm.


The sheets were paginated "81"–"86" in the left margin in pencil.


The manuscript is a typescript of the "Circe" episode, comprised of only bottom copies of what were presumably 3 complete typescripts (a top copy, none of which survives, and 2 bottom copies), of which only 1 partial, other copies survives (Buffalo MS V.B.13.h). This part of the typescript was prepared from the scribal version of the Rosenbach manuscript (faircopy) version of the episode (MS V.B.13.d.1). The typescript was revised by Joyce, who also made most of the emendations on the corresponding pages of the other copy of the typescript. It is continued from MS V.B.13.e.1 and is continued on MS V.B.13.e.3. The text on the pages is as follows:

MS V.B.13.e.2 Ulysses 1922 (1992) / 1984
p. [1]: "81)" 490.16–491.21 / 15.2611–2645
