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. Rodker laid in eight pages of Errata listing the over 200 typographical errors. Rodker’s edition includes the statement, “First Published by Shakespeare and Company, Paris: February 1922. Published By the Egoist Press, London: October 1922. . . . The Publishers apologize for the typographical errors, a list of which is appended.”
