Corrections made by Harriet Shaw Weaver to a copy of James Joyce, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1917: first English edition, American sheets – see Slocum and Cahoon, A Bibliography of James Joyce, Soho Bibliographies 12, London, 1953). A note by Weaver pasted onto the fly-leaf reads: ‘The pencilled corrections in this copy of the first English edition of The Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man were made by me from a list of corrections sent by Mr, Joyce for the second edition, printed in Southport and published by The Egoist in 1917. They do not appear in the third edition (1921) for which the sheets were again imported from the U.S.A. but they do appear in Mr. Jonathan Cape’s edition (reset) of 1924.’ The note is signed and dated ‘Harriet Weaver / 4 Rawlinson Road / Oxford / March 10th 1952’.
