Further Partial Duplicate Copy of the Typescript (with First Overlay) of the “Circe” Episode for Ulysses (1921)

General Material Description and Contents

The manuscript consists of 42 sheets of paper of various kinds and sizes (see Contents for details). The typewritten pages are all double-spaced, except those of MS V.B.13.g.4 that are single-spaced. Although Spielberg differentiated the sections of this typescript based on changes in paper kinds and sizes, it constitutes a single integral typescript of a portion of the episode. The first part of the typescript was prepared directly from the Rosenbach (faircopy) manuscript and the remainder from the scribal version (Buffalo MS V.B.13.d). Joyce made an initial round of corrections and addition to all the copies of the typescripts (MSS V.B.13.e–h), but also made a second round of emendations only on the printers’ copy of the typescript (MS V.B.13.h).


The typescript was prepared from January to mid February 1921 by Raymonde Linossier and from mid February to 17 April 1921 by Mrs. Harrison and at least one other typist in Paris and revised by Joyce beginning in February 1921 for Ulysses .


There are 3 manuscript draft levels prior to the Rosenbach (faircopy) manuscript version: Buffalo MS V.A.19 and NLI MSS 36,639/12 and 35,598.
