Volumes One and Two reproduce the manuscript leaves of the novel’s episodes 1-16, Telemachus to Eumaeus, and the two notebooks which substantially contain Ithaca and Penelope, 810 holograph pages in all. Twelve fair-copy pages – seven for Circe(the Messianic Scene), and five for the conclusion of Penelope – from the Ulysses materials in the Joyce collection at the Lockwood Memorial Library at Buffalo, have been appended in an editorial attempt to represent Ulysses complete at manuscript stage.
Volume Three contains a reduced facsimile, four pages to a facsimile page of the 1922 Paris first edition of Ulysses. Painstakingly annotated to indicate its departures from the manuscript, and also the discrepancies between the manuscript and episodes 1-14 as pre-published between 1918 and 1920 in ‘The Little Review.’
