In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

manuscripts can tell us specifically about James Joyce and more generally about the mysteries and marvels of human creativity. Appendix 2. Extant Manuscripts for Ulysses as of Summer 2002 A Chart In trying to assess the changes in the archive of Ulysses manuscripts as a result of the National Library of Ireland’s acquisition of new materials in 2002 and the “Circe” and “Eumaeus” documents that surfaced in the two previous years, I prepared a chart that compares the state of the archive up to 2000 with that from after the National Library’s announcement of its new collection . To make this chart as complete as possible, for each extant document I’ve indicated its present location, its catalog number if one exists, and any published photoreproductions or transcriptions. A manuscript in the National Library is labeled with the abbreviation “NLI” and the library’s manuscript number. This chart fills in and supplements the episode-by-episode list of extant manuscripts that I provided in James Joyce’s Manuscripts: An Index. Documents that existed before 2000 are designated by regular type, and those that have come to light since that date are in boldface type. An arrow indicates that a document leads directly to the next extant stage. A document ’s position in a column indicates its approximate place in the composition sequence for an episode: the columns are subject to small and large corrections and do not indicate relationships between manuscripts for different episodes. The chart covers the documents for Joyce’s work on each episode up to the Rosenbach Manuscript. At some point during his work on each episode he produced a final working draft or fair copy, and from that point on his revisions function almost exclusively to refine and especially to augment the episode’s existing shape. The Rosenbach Manuscript is the extant docu- Table 1.
