Scribbledehobble: The Ur-Workbook for Finnegans Wake

By James Joyce; Thomas E. Connolly | Go to book overview

INTRODUCTION

IN THE FALL Of 1939, the burden of housekeeping during the war crisis forced the Joyces to move out of their Paris flat and set up their domicile in the Hôtel Lutétia. They left their furnishings and personal belongings at the apartment, but they never returned there to live. During the Nazi occupation of Paris, Paul Léon "rescued some of Joyce's books and papers from the flat on the rue des Vignes, and bought others back at an auction sale held illegally by the landlord"1 who was anxious to recover his back rent. In 1949, the whole residue of Joyce's belongings -- books, manuscripts, and personal effects -- was placed on exhibition and offered for sale in Paris by La Libraire La Hune.

The Lockwood Memorial Library acquired, in the early fall of 1950, the bulk of the material preserved by Paul Léon. The Wickser Collection, as it is called, contains the remains of Joyce's library, manuscripts, notebooks, letters, press clippings, and personal possessions. Among the personal items are Joyce's passports, his eyeglasses and walking sticks, and the little gold book engraved " Finnegans Wake by James Joyce" that was presented to him by his family for his birthday in 1939.2
