Dear Miss Weaver. Harriet Shaw Weaver 1876-1961. London: Faber, 1970. First Edition. Pp 509. A fine bright copy in dust jacket.
A biography of the noted English feminist, publisher, and patron of the arts. She was an early champion of Joyce and was his typist and publisher. She also edited the literary periodical’ The Egoist.’
A longtime Joyce supporter, Harriet Weaver was determined to bring out her own edition of Ulysses. A socialist, she believed that her inheritance, ‘tainted by usury, was hers in trust,’ and had signed a sizeable inheritance over to Joyce. She sent Joyce a £200 advance for an English edition, which was published for the Egoist Press by John Rodker of Paris, and printed by Beach’s printer Maurice Darentiere from the same plates as the first edition.
