Publication of the relevant digitised manuscripts of the ZJJF Hans E Jahnke bequest in the online catalogue of the National Library of Ireland.
This digital collection is part of the Hans E. Jahnke Bequest at the Zurich James Joyce Foundation. It was the expressed wish of the donor, Prof. Hans E. Jahnke (1944-2010), that scholars have access to the documents. The Joyce Manuscripts from the Hans E. Jahnke Bequest at Zurich James Joyce Foundation are the property of the Foundation and were published online on behalf of the Zurich James Joyce Foundation by the National Library of Ireland in 2014. The collection was part of Giorgio Joyce's estate, some of which passed to his second wife Asta Osterwalder Joyce. It was their wish that the collection be kept together and under no circumstances scattered or sold.
