Joyce, James: Finnegans Wake & Work in Progress | v.1.0 | 6 Oct 2013

This is a special edition of James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake (Faber & Faber 1939, wikipedia), taken from the epub of his Complete Works, but with additional material:

EARLY DRAFTS
Short texts that Joyce wrote in 1923/24 and which were later incorporated into the Wake: ‘Roderick O’Conor’, ‘Saint Kevin’, ‘Berkeley and Patrick’, ‘Tristan and Isolde’, ‘H.C.E.’, ‘Mamalujo’, ‘The Cad Kernel’, and ‘The Revered Letter.’ These are sourced from the (now apparently defunct) robotwisdom site.

WORK IN PROGRESS
Most of Finnegans Wake (= everything except chapter IV.1) had appeared in various magazines before its book publication. As Joyce tended to rewrite passages after they were first released, these earlier versions often differ substantially from the 1939 text. Most chapters were published first in the Paris literary journal transition, of which you will currently find here the nos. 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 13, and 15. Also included is the first ever publication of a Wake text from the transatlantic review no. 4 (April 1924). I intend to add further texts from transition later.
This section also has the texts that were published in book form between 1930 and 1934: Anna Livia Plurabelle (Faber & Faber, 1932), Two Tales of Shem and Shaun (‘The Mookse and the Gripes’ & ‘The Ondt and the Gracehoper’, Faber & Faber, 1932), Haveth Childers Everywhere (Fountain Press, 1930), and The Mime of Mick, Nick and the Maggies (The Servire Press, 1934).

FINNEGANS WAKE
The ‘novel’ that Faber & Faber first published on May 4, 1939, in the revised 1975 state that the Trent University used for its digitisation. All the mistakes mentioned on fweet.org have been corrected.

THE CHANGES
This section is the reason for this special epub edition of Finnegans Wake, as it didn’t seem to make sense to include it in the Complete Works. For the lucky or unlucky few who like to compare the Wake text with its earlier incarnations, it shows how the text changed between the magazine versions and the 1939 publication. Deleted words or passages are crossed out, and text added later is underlined.

Best,
pynch.

In case anyone uses their paper edition of FW for quotes, which is usually done with page and line numbers, there’s a new pdf version here that replicates the formatting of the 1975 standard edition by Faber & Faber.

Thank you so much!
I've been looking for a true to original PDF of Finnegans Wake for years, and now this landed on my desk like a Deus ex machina.
In the case of FW it is imperative to have the line numbering intact.
