Joyce's schemas:

Joyce's 1921 schema is printed in many places, including Stuart Gilbert, James Joyce's "Ulysses" (1930), Hugh Kenner, Dublin's Joyce (1956), Richard Ellmann, Ulysses on the Liffey (1972), and A. Nicholas Fargnoli and Michael P. Gillespie, James Joyce A to Z (1995). The earlier 1920 schema was first printed in Richard Ellmann, Ulysses on the Liffey (1972). Both schemas are printed as part of Jeri Johnson's notes to Ulysses: The 1922 Text (1993), and both are reproduced in facsimile in The James Joyce Archive, edited by Michael Groden (1978), vol. 12, pp. 168-173 and 174a-b.
